I wanted to like this book but I didn’t, I did manage to read the whole thing and it was a struggle. There is a blindness epidemic and the blind are put in an unused hospital for the insane. Only one sighted person manages to accompany her husband and she had to do everything. I found the characters wimpy and annoying and I couldn’t get immersed in the story. I found I couldn’t care less what happened. I’m sure it must be me so many others have raved about this book.
