Come feel the wind at your back. Read his story today.
Fun and different!
I loved the book, and have already bought Part 2 because I’m eager to read the rest of John’s story. I think you will be, too. It’s fast paced and interesting, with the few snatches of humorous dialogue that give us clear pictures of the random characters that influence John’s growing up years. The second half reads more as expected, with plenty of dialogue as the story follows John’s love life and career until he achieves his goal of being in space. It's easy to forget that John is blind, as it doesn't seem to affect his life, but that's the point!
The book isn’t preachy at all, but John’s faith is clearly a part of him, and the brief description of how he arrived at that faith as a teenager was especially fascinating to me. ~
Outstanding book, recommend for thoughtful people.
I loved the book!
