One of the best books I've read this year...or any year

It was after seeing the trailer for Blindness that I decided to read the book. To be honest, I was blown away. A lot of fans of the book, from what I've read online, have expressed some trepidation about the adaptation. That a film couldn't capture the the emotion and brutality of the story. To them, I say bullshit. Reading the book, I could see it as a movie. And, I think it could really work well on film. I think that's why I'm so excited about it. I can really see it being an amazing movie.

I'm eternally hopeful when it comes to things like this.
