There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story . . . don't be like the book-snobs who don't do that. Read sometimes for the words - the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.

Loved Blindness - read it twice which is unusual for me. The movie wasn't as good as I expected though. Sorry it did not work for you.

I'll probably hang on to it for another time. I kind of liked his odd style of writing.
