    "I love Isaac. John Green did a good job of humanizing Isaac. His reactions to the circumstances none of which he deserved were so real: his cancer, his blindness... In spite of all that, he was still a good human being true and true. "

    "Peter Nimble and His Fantastic Eyes is more interesting and unique than it is good to me. So, I wouldn't put it among the best, but it does get points for being a truly unique book. "

    "I don't like the plot for this book, it almost seems inappropriate for an adult novel. It is sort of depressing to think of a guy who is deaf and blind in a sexy way. This would be more appropriate for a different genre. "

    "In Follow My Leader we follow a Jimmy as he is guided through the world by his dog. I read it and it was an interesting story. I know someone who is blind so it was somewhat relatable. I'd recommend this to others who can relate to the experience."

    "Now, do I really want to call a 14 year old girl that will be blind soon a cool blind character? To say that she isn't pretty inspiring would leave much to be desired but cool I really don't feel that way. "

    "I picked this book up on a whim, and was surprised. It's not astoundingly good as far as plot or execution, but it's easy to get pulled into the characters' experiences. I had trouble putting it down mainly due to that -- wanting to see how things would turn out with this suddenly-blind guy. "

    "This book was written 50 years ago, so the culture is not exactly modern. It's a young adult book about a girl growing up and having to adjust to a new way of living after she goes blind. Interesting and valuable for other growing girls to read."

    "By the description of the book, it is hard to determine if this book has any blind characters. I would assume from the title that the book is actually about a deaf character instead. Not a good example."
