Saramago probably wanted to show the confusion that would reign for anyone involved in a situation like this and on this level the prose does work and is probably the ‘genius’ found by the Swedish Academy Laureate Committee. My only major complaint is about the uneven first 20 minutes or so: Saramaho Davis narrates the audiobook.

Cecità by José Saramago (2 star ratings)
Blindness is a chore to read both because of the bulky form I however liked the unique grammatical style which lends the book its breathless quality and the disturbing content. Is this a virus, a bacteria, a prion?
