#31: Farsighted - Emlyn Chand

(If graphic doesn't load, refresh page)

Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead-broke and insanely overprotective, and to complicate matters even more, he's blind. Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, a new girl from India moves into town. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Yes, sophomore year might not be so bad after all.
Unfortunately, Alex is in store for another new arrival--an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they begin to suggest that Simmi is in danger. With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and new friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex must embark on a journey to change his future.

My Opinion:
I'll be honest with you, I had a hard time getting past a blind guy being able to use a computer to Google people. Fathoming that is impossible to my brain.
If you can get past that, to the mystery and the paranormal stuff, at times it's pretty cool.
While I liked the story, I don't know that it's one I'm going to race out to read the next book in the series. It had great elements, psychic abilities, romance and suspense, but the story just didn't over-excite me.
I know lots of people who will like it though, and plan on letting them know about this story.


2.5/5


Recommend? To people who like psychics and things of that nature.

  1. Hi Freda. Thanks for giving Farsighted a shot. I'm sorry it wasn't quite your cup of tea but appreciate the read and review all the same. Have a great Monday (bleck). :-D

  2. I just don't agree with the review. I thought it was a great story and had a lot of fascinating things and people in it. I know it is for YA, but I am way past that age, and I would love to read it.

  3. Hi Freda,
    My daughter-in-law has a rare auto-immune disease that took her eyesight when she was in her late twenties. Years ago, my son and she came to visit and he bought software that can read the Internet to her. By now, I think more is possible so this part of the story would not be a far leap for me.

  5. Yep ... there's software out there for blind people to use computers. It's amazing! I love what technology allows folks to do these days. I'm still intrigued by the idea of a blind protagonist.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.

There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
