Did I not read the same book as everyone else?
on 12 March 1999
I'm sorry. I'm about to tick a lot of people off, but this story was average. I read all the 5-star comments and figured, wow, this must be a great book, so I bought it. I kept reading, waiting for the parts that generated all the excitement to come, but 300 pages into the book I realized that they weren't coming. I forget the heroine's name, but she was too wimpy and obsessed about being ugly for my tastes. She was nice enough, but I didn't find anything extraordinary about her. What I did find extraordinary was the fact that so many people were fooled into believing that the blind hero could see. Talk about dumb! I don't want to insult anyone because I know every reader has his/her own likes and dislikes, but this book was pretty weenie.
