Una pequeña alfarería, un centro comercial gigantesco. Un mundo en rápido proceso de extinción, otro que crece y se multiplica como un juego de espejos donde no parece haber límites para la ilusión engañosa. Todos los días se extinguen especies animales y vegetales, todos los días hay profesiones que se tornan inútiles, idiomas que dejan de tener personas que los hablen, tradiciones que pierden sentido, sentimientos que se convierten en sus contrarios. -- Amazon.com

Seeing by José Saramago( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in Spanish and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On election day in the capital, it is raining so hard that no one has come out to vote. The politicians are growing jittery. Should they reschedule for another day? Around three o'clock, the rain finally stops. At four, voters rush to the polling stations, as if ordered to appear. But when the ballots are counted, more than 70% are blank. The citizens are rebellious. A state of emergency is declared. The president proposes that a wall be built around the city. But are the authorities acting too precipitously? Or even blindly? The word evokes terrible memories of the plague of blindness that hit the city four years before, and of the one woman who kept her sight. Could she be behind the blank ballots? Is she the organizer of a conspiracy against the state? What begins as a satire on governments and the sometimes dubious efficacy of the democratic system turns into something far more sinister.--From publisher description
