Facing life with declining sight, Mike has to re-evaluate his goals. He begins attending a school for blind adults. There he meets people like him and learns some sobering lessons about his future. But he also finds love, adventure, and hope.
Full of humor and emotion, this story gives us a hero to root for. Mike understands his new limitations, but he strives to find a way around them. Granted, not without a few bumps in the road. But he handles them with grace and flashes of humor. You can’t help but like the guy.
There are some great peripheral characters. Ones that capture your heart and tickle your funny bone. It’s a nice reminder of the roller coaster of emotions that is life.
If you are looking for a book with emotional payouts and endearing wit, check this one out.

I enjoyed the humorous dialogue in this lovely story about brotherhood and hope, bravery and ordinary people getting through those bad things in life, and from an outsider their actions can appear so extraordinary. The book is an easy read. It’s story is meaningful. There is an underlying truth to all of it. What better thing is there to read on a cold February day?
“[This brave man’s] adventures and jokes help many people work through bad luck, not just blind folks,” it says. I can easily see that the storyteller is not only trying to help families who are dealing with blindness. He is offering an outlook on life that turns tragedy on its head and might just as well be applied to the everyday hardships we often experience in life.
But still, imagine skiing blind! Cooking while blind! Meeting a girl when you are blind. What a story this is!
A Fun, Interesting and Inspiring Book!

I very much enjoyed reading this book and found myself more engrossed the further I got into it. The final chapter bringing clarity to me as the reader in the way the author wrapped it all up interestingly at the end.
In addition to the main character, Mike, I found each and every one after him memorable; even after I finished reading the book – they simply stayed with me.
The book, at first glance, may appear to be depressing; as it is about someone losing their sight and living with others in similar circumstances – IT IS NOT! I found it fun, interesting and inspiring!
I have and will continue to recommend this book to others!
