This book talks about a strange epidemic: people become blind.
They start showing the deepest human perfidy and widespread indifference to others.
I think it can be useful to reflect on human relationships and understand problems in the society.
Usually we judge people by their appearance and maybe, to know who they really are, we would need to be blind.
