Blindness, by Jose Saramago

Further proof of my philistinism: this was written by a Nobel prize winner, I hated it. It read like a horror novel without the horror, the writing never captured my attention, the characters never came alive. And what was with the comma splicing? It was on purpose, but I don’t understand why.

    So, flashback to seventh grade. What is a comma splice? I am picturing my english teacher and his large Tom Selleck mustache. He in no other way resembled Tom Selleck.
    Also need more woman authors on your book list. More ladies.
    Nice site by the way. It looks fresh.

    Second. Comment. Ever.

    Thanks, Amy!

    So, answer first, question second.

    Answer: a comma splice is when you knit two sentences together with a comma when, in fact, they should be two separate items and have a period between them. Like this: Amy commented on my site, I replied.

    Question: I agree. More ladies. It’s my new year’s resolution. Can you suggest some good ones? I need guidance.
