Reviews for The Sight of the Blind
Werecat99 chapter 2 . 4/19/2004
For some reason, I liked the idea of childbirth at a beach... although it might not be very practical.
However, I liked the child's name. Very poetic in a subtle way.
I was surprised that Evrena was able to sneak on the blind boy, since blind people have extremely acute hearing. But in anycase, this was a well written story.
Good work.

Goodifuls. Anyway, are Canolmed and Evrena commoner peoples? If they are, then don't make them talk like all old and wise and high (as in on the social scale)and stuff. Like, make them say "Yeah" as opposed to "Yes" or stuff. If u want.

I liked that. Your use of language is excellent and you have painted a very vivid image of the library, Dorlin and this world. I could almost see them.
The part with the prophecy was interesting, but this has been used too often in fantasy (I'm guilty of this as well). I hope that this plays out well.
Loved it so far,

la di da di da... still brilliant, i guess. but stop repeating yourself!
Freckles Victorious chapter 4 . 2/23/2004
Woohoo, good. But it seems a bit strange that wats her name, Everena, would tell Calomed and family all that stuff. And YOU NEED COMMAS, YOU REALLY DO!

Yay! Brilliant! No odd sentences or anything. Go you!
Freckles Victorious chapter 2 . 2/20/2004
The part bout him being blind when he is born is kinda odd... and also the "He hung his head sadly" is odd. you'd think he'd be used to being blind. or if u really want to keep it, then make it all one sentence like "'la di da watever he says,' he said, hanging his head sadly.
But the story is quite good, despite my constructive mood.

La di da... good. v. good. but anyway, when u say "...the keepers of the Library, though some were more sociable. Dorlín was not one of the sociable ones," i wouldn't have repeated the word sociable. say something like "one of them" or something creative. anyway.
