Jose Saramago, Author, Jonathan Davis, Narrated by , read by Jonathan Davis. BBC Audiobooks America $29.95 (0p) ISBN 978-1-60283-444-6

Saramago's chilling thriller about an epidemic of “white blindness” that affects everyone in its path is a truly remarkable tale of loss and a metaphor for the horrors of humankind. With such a large and varying cast of characters including young children, a mother and an elderly man, narrator Jonathan Davis gives a truly rousing performance and displays his wide-ranging ability. Each character is original and believable in the face of this unbelievable epidemic. Davis's reading puts his audience in a bright white place, where little is visual save for the listeners' imaginations running wild. Davis's voice paints a vivid portrait. A Harcourt paperback (Reviews, July 13, 1998). (Oct.)
