If an author is too lazy to give characters names and use traditional punctuation and formatting (sentence- paragraph breaks) then I don’rpt see any reason not to just gulp it down. So that’s what I did.

Yes the couple ideas were interesting but it just went by so fast, no time to pause or think. Oh, well, must have been the author’s intent.

With that off my chest, I loved Blindness and the other works by this Nobel-winning author, but too bad- so sad, this one didn’t work mostly because it was a new story in an old wrapper which didn’t even fit.
