I review for BookSneeze®

By Faith not by Sight

By Faith Not by Sight is the autobiography by Scott MacIntyre, American Idol contestant. Scott's story is so inspiring. What he has accomplished blind most sighted people never even imagine. I think the real story though is the story of his parents. His mother thought he was blind from an early age and the doctors kept telling her he was alright. Once the diagnosis was made she went beyond the call of duty to do what she had to do for her child. Once she realized that he had the gift of music she even went further beyond. The most memorable part of the book was when they took him and left him in England. I dread putting my teenager on the bus let alone leaving him blind in a foreign country. What love and will power those parents must have.

I have to admit the first part of the book was very slow for me. I had a hard time sticking with it. But the second part picked up and was a little easier to read and stick with it.

There is a reason that biographies are my favorite books. Other peoples story are the most interesting and the most inspiring.

I received this book from Booksneeze and was in no way required to give this book a good review.
