It was many years, probably decades since I read this book. It's impact is still felt by me. Wow. I had never read anything like it before and still haven't. One day I will get round to reading Blindness.

An investigation starts that is on the road to nowhere.

BarbaraBB Is it a sequel to this one? 6d

MayJasper Seeing is book 2 of 2 in the Blindness series @BarbaraBB @Cinfhen 6d
Butterflyamore I‘ve read Blindness and have this one in my pile. I was planning to read it for my “a sequel” reading challenge prompt. Blindness was a powerful book. 6d
BarbaraBB Then I should read it. I loved Blindness! 6d

The Implacable Order of Things | José Luís Peixoto

This novel is beautifully written. Even though the primary theme is suffering, and all its characters suffer, their suffering is poetry. Their suffering is an entangled web with each other, with the passage of time, with the earth itself, and Peixoto just makes the whole thing read like beautifully heartbreaking poetry.

Highly enjoyable intelligent read! I had no expectations, but in the end I got so much out of it. In many ways it reminds me of Oscar Wilde‘s writings, even though it‘s different. Fantastic translation! “Literature is the pleasantest way of ignoring life”. It is for sure one of the most intriguing autobiographies I‘ve ever read.

BarbaraBB On my shelves. Happy to hear it‘s readable. I love the title ♥️ (edited) 3mo
