This is the best autobiography I have ever read by far. Helen Keller writes with a simplicity yet elegance that opens your eyes to the world of the deaf and blind.

Great story - BAD SCANNED COPY

First, I have to say that the quality of the scanned copy of this book was horrendous. There were garbled words in almost every sentence and, sometimes, it was impossible to figure out what it was supposed to be. Also, paragraphs and sentences were broken in the middle with the book title in the middle of a page.

Leaving all of that aside, the story was mesmerizing. I cannot fathom how Helen Keller managed to accomplish all that she did with her limitations. But, reading this story, if you didn't know she was blind and deaf, you would think it was written by someone who has no disabilities. Her insights were amazing. After reading it, I cannot imagine how anyone who has not disabilities could dare to complain about anything in their lives. It is worth slogging through the terrible scanned version just to be able to experience the beauty of life through the eyes of who can see more than most sighted people.

    Bad Scan

    Bad Scan

    Like so many of the free books available for the Nook, this scan is very poor. Pagination and printing is off. It may be a good book, but the edition fails as an ebook.

    It is not worth the trouble, and I am deleting it.

    I guess you really do get what you pay for¿

    Too many typos!

    While I am sure that this book is wonderful, I couldn't get past all of the typos. I am going to find a version that is easier to read! Just an example of free not working out on nook!
