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.
