really liked it
bookshelves: sci-fi

A fantastic book detailing the life of a blind girl as she undergoes treatment for her blindness which enables her to visualize the net. What is most compelling about it is the way Sawyer details the everyday life of someone without sight, their interactions with technology and how they perceive the world around them through their remaining senses. One of those books that really gave me a better understanding of others through it's reading and reminded me of Elizabeth Moon's Speed of Dark which did the same for autism.
