    2. "Thus it is that my friends have made the story of my life. In a thousand ways they have turned my limitations into beautiful privileges, and enabled me to walk serene and happy in the shadow cast by my deprivation."This captivating memoir written by Helen Keller at the age of twenty-two was such a refreshing read! It really did manage to put a smile on my face and restore my spirit at a time when it seems so much negativity envelops us. There is no doubt that Helen was a remarkable woman and he [...]

    3. I have always held Helen Keller in high regard. How can you not, really? She is a remarkable woman. I did a report on her in grade school, and though I forgot many facts of her life over the years, what I learned of her perseverance and strength of spirit left a lasting impression on me.Helen Keller's spirit certainly shines in this short but beautifully written memoir, which Helen wrote when she was just 22 (and, worth noting, attending Radcliffe College).I think most know that Helen lost her s [...]

    4. A remarkable story of a remarkable woman who defeats all the odds stacked against her. Helen at the age of 19 months old contracts an illness that renders her both deaf and blind. This story mainly focuses on Helen's earlier life and describes how she learns to read, write and communicate with the aide of her teacher Miss Sullivan after her family decide to take her to the Perkins Institute for the blind in Boston in 1886, Anne Sullivan becomes instrumental in her life teaching her methods in co [...]

    5. I always had an interest in Helen Keller. When I was young my parents nicknamed me Helen Keller, because I would go around to everyone's plates and demand food. I wouldn't eat off my plate, but I would gobble off others without remorse. I would still have this habit of munching off people's delectable morsels if I wasn't humiliated in High School. It was just second nature to me that I didn't even notice that I would grab a chip here and there. Helen Keller was introduced to me when I was very y [...]

    6. This is an interesting book in that it exactly fails to answer the question that you wish it would answer: what is it like to be both blind and deaf? Of course her education was marvelous and it is amazing that a young woman with those disabilities was able to overcome them and become a productive member of society. However, I found that the book focused much more on "how I became normal" instead of on "how my life is different." I found the prose to be a bit flowery (perhaps a product of the er [...]

    9. Helen Adams Keller was born June 27, 1880 and died June 1, 1968. This informative and interesting memoir depicts her life as a healthy child, her critical illness at 18 months that resulted in the loss of her hearing and sight, and the long, hard road ahead that eventually lead to her unbelievable accomplishments and graduation from college in 1904.Helen was a remarkable child who learned patience and overcame extreme adversity due to the loving and unrelenting dedication of her Teacher Miss Ann [...]

    10. I just wish I had half her eagerness to learn, and even a smidgeon of her abilities, resilience, joie de vivre and determination. While reading, I was constantly wondering, how can a blind and deaf person exhibit such rich vocabulary and such detailed images of the world around us? Hope nothing's wrong with me for being jealous of her

    14. I loved reading this book. I read it as a school girl and was awe struck. I lived in Alabama myself so I knew of her home and have visited it several times over the years. There was something wonderful about seeing from her own words how she had not only survived but thrived. She had such an indomitable spirit that shone through. She was my hero when I was a child and she has not lessened the impact she had on me even today. I have just re-read this book and I gained even more insight into her b [...]

    15. A lovely, quotable book, similar to the writing of L.M. Montgomery.Which is also what bothers me about it.When I first read this, years and years ago, I was impressed by all the poetic imagery. And it is impressive that she was so well versed in the language of sight and sound. But reading the book now? All those bells, and crickets, and clouded, blue skiesjust make me sad. She wasn't meeting us halfway. She was meeting us all the way.She touches on the problem, herself:At that time I eagerly ab [...]

    16. The autobiography of Helen Keller, written when she was still quite young, as she had just finished college. It is a fascinating thing to even contemplate what a brilliant mind she had despite the obvious obstacles that were set in her way at such an early age. My greatest admiration goes to Miss Sullivan, without whom Helen Keller's mind would undoubtedly remained locked in her disabled body. Miss Keller describes things so vividly it is difficult to remember that she has not seen nor heard any [...]

    17. Helen Keller had a severe illness at 19 months old which left her deaf and blind. It is hard to imagine losing one of those senses but to lose both must have been such an unbearable sensory deprivation. So understandable that (view spoiler)[ Helen felt the need to lock her mother in her room(hide spoiler)] Luckily for Helen she had an understanding family wealthy enough for a tutor who helped her to learn all the subjects a hearing and sighted child would learn and more. An inspiring book full o [...]

    21. Absolutely agree,"Any teacher can take a child to classroom, but not every teacher can make him learn". ~Helen Keller I'm truly inspired by Helen Keller, she's a wonderful woman. One of the most beautiful & inspirational autobiography -biography I have ever read. I'm in awe what an extraordinary imagination she had, she was blind but honestly she can see more than me. The way she pictures her surroundings is exceptional. She's a true symbol of hope. What could be more beautiful than this!"Wh [...]

    22. This is my “Celebrity Memoir” book to fill the Book Riot Read Harder challenge for 2018. Helen Keller was rather famous in her day, being the first deaf-blind person to earn a BA degree. I believe she is still admired by many in the deaf community.I don’t suppose it is surprising that she was an avid reader, once her teacher Miss Sullivan managed to make the breakthrough that allowed Helen’s education to begin. It was an activity that she could pursue on her own at her own speed and, lik [...]

    23. When I heard this was the book that inspired The Miracle Worker, I really thought it was going to revolve around Anne Sullivan and the difficult process of breaking through the barrier of blindness and deafness to get to Helen Keller. I remember vague details of the play (and movie) from way back in middle school, and remember thinking then how interesting it all was.This wasn't the case with this book. What this book dives into is Keller's life after all the events of The Miracle Worker. Which [...]

    26. I. just. can't.I suppose it's a matter of taste, but I hated this book.
