The Blind Contessa’s New Machine by Carey Wallace

>

Well, this was an interesting little book. It was interesting to try to imagine what it would be like to go blind, and I liked the little romance between Caroline and Turri. I was however really disappointed in the ending… wasn’t they happy one I was hoping for. Although there really can’t be any happy endings when there’s so much infidelity involved…

Also… this really had SO little to do with the type-writer. Not that it wasn’t interesting to learn some about why it was invented… but the same story could have been carried out without it.
