Imagine if the most severe physical pain and sorrow in your life were inflicted by the people you trusted most. In the spring of 2007, Belo Cipriani was beaten and robbed of his sight at the hands of his childhood friends. Blind: A Memoir chronicles the two years immediately following the assault.

At the age of 26, Belo found himself learning to walk, cook, and date in the dark. Armed with visual memory and his newly developed senses, Belo shows listeners what the blind see. He narrates the recondite world of the blind, where microwaves, watches, and computers talk, and where guide dogs guard as well as lead.

    " I received this book as a giveaway, so I really didn't know what to expect. The book tells the story of a young man who becomes blind because of a beating by so-called old friends. This book is an inspiration to read on overcoming adversity in ones life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly | 1/1/2013

    " Such a good read. Kind of a collection of vignettes from a very fresh perspective. It's a LendMe book if anyone has a nook. "

    " Amazing. Belo's story is inspiring. "

    " A raw, honest, and ultimately uplifting account of a person's courageous journey through darkness to light. A real hero's journey. "

    " Kudos to Mr. Cipriani for persevering in telling his story. It is quite an accomplishment. Thanks to him for sharing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara | 5/28/2012

    " Uneven. Interesting description of learning to use a guide dog. Dramatic story but left me strangely unmoved. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Steelwhisper | 4/1/2012

    " When will I get to read the inspirational memoir of someone aged, poor, already partially disabled, unable to finance as much as the filling of their teeth or a new hearing aid, not to speak of a guide dog and expensive computer gear? Never. That's why these books get such kudos. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 8/4/2011

    " Compelling, at times distressing, ultimately inspiring. Told in a clear, warm, and distinctly personal voice. I expected Belo's story to be intriguing, but I didn't expect to become so involved that I finished it in a single session. "
