Helen Keller's story is inspirational and must read for any person who wants to understand a memoir of an individual who had special needs during a time period when she would have been more isolated from society. Her story is important for parents, educators, and social scientists as we strive to create a more inclusive world that includes those with disabilities. Inspiring and tragic in equal measure.
It is very inspirational to hear Keller speak so honestly on her struggles of learning and studying. She admits sometimes it is wonderful to learn but sometimes it is tedious but yet she persevered and eventually attended and graduated college. It is also wonderful to hear how she describes people and smells. Every scene from her childhood is accompanied by a certain smell. She goes on for a while about different authors and stories but they are huge part of her life. One can really tell how much Keller loves life, nature, and her fellow humans.
"Silence sits immense upon my soul. Then comes hope with a smile and whispers, 'There is joy in self-forgetfulness.' So, I try to make the light in others' eyes my sun, the music in others' ears my symphony, the smile on others' lips my happiness." (pg. 142)
"For, after all, every one who wishes to gain true knowledge must climb the Hill Difficulty alone" (pg. 106)
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 of the things with which she has become acquainted by her senses of touch, taste and smell or her extensive reading. Throughout the reading you simply keep saying to yourself, "what a remarkable woman." Were the subject of this book not so fascinating, I doubt it would hold the interest as acutely as it does. I was amazed at the number of noted people who took an interest and had a direct impact on her life. Alexander Graham Bell being one of the key figures who enabled her to find a way out into the world and help to foster her education.
Well worth reading, with a solid 3.5 star rating.

A serious illness destroyed Helen Keller's sight and hearing at the age of two. At seven, she was helped by Anne Sullivan, her beloved teacher and friend. Through sheer determination and resolve, she learned to speak and prepared herself for entry into prep school by age sixteen. Later she enrolled at Radcliffe and graduated with honors. Her motto: "There are no handicaps, only challenges."

One of the most beautiful books I have ever read.It is so wonderful..thanks to school..we got the unabridged version for reading this year.
Helen Keller is one of the most awesome people ever..She is determined,intelligent and funny.I got even more fond after I realized that we have a common love for books and that we both dislike examinations and textbooks with passion.She is not afraid to say what's in her heart.She has written about both her good and bad times.Again,I was able to understand her more after she told about her inability in solving math problems.She is a nature loving outdoorsy person that we love and is very extrovert.She is nice to everyone she meets which makes us love her even more.What makes her so amazing is that she is ever ready to acknowledge the people who have helped her and is grateful and down to earth.Love you,Helen Keller..you just went into my list of role-models!
