    English Paper

    "Helen Keller: The Story of My Life" is a book that I will never forget. It is the very touching story of Helen Keller and how she came to be the women that she was. This is one story that I believe everybody should read, it has inspired me to enjoy the senses that I have that she didn't. This is one lady that cannot be stopped, the amount of things she achieved in her lifetime from improving the quality of deaf and blind person's lives. She managed to graduate college and she was missing the two most important senses a person can have. She couldn't see or hear for Christ's sakes. This is a perfect example of anybody with a desire to better themselves can do it. This statement is how Helen Keller lived every day; even with her disabilities. Anybody who enjoys reading about hardship would enjoy this book because I believe that Helen Keller embodies struggle and perseverance. One thing I didn't like about the book is that it is very sad, and while this couldn't be changed because it is real life, it still is something that I don't like in a book. The book tells of her experiences, her struggles through her own eyes. This book was a very enjoyable read, the trials that Helen Keller went through are incredible and her life was very interesting.

    a fantastic book

    Helen Keller was a person whose life was the drama--she did not seek drama as the silly celebrities of today. And that is what makes this a great read with a genuine voice, inspiring in a quiet complex way. I felt it was a rare gem to be reread at different points in our lives.

    Not what I expected

    This book wasn't as thrilling as I would have personally preferred, but it was very interesting never the less. She speaks very deeply of her emotions for the beauty that she can neither see or hear but can still feel and understand in a totally different way. For the majority of the book she's talking about her education. Which I totally think is cool because of her disability and such, but it's not really all that thrilling. I don't want to be a total nimrod, but after a while talking about exams becomes a little uninteresting. Overall, I would recomend this book to people that enjoy a peaceful book, and one who enjoys autobiographicals of the past.

    The Story of My Life Helle Keller a oustanding book or a poor one.

    my opinion about the story of my life by Hale Keller is okay because to me I don¿t like to reed autobiography, but even so I like it a little.
