The Story of My Life is a personal account of Helen Keller's life, from her early days to those as an adult.

    Agree with other reviewers: the English accent threw me a little (I had to rewind a few times to re-listen to sentences, but I'm weirdly bad at understanding accents), and the book gets tedious towards the end when she goes into too much detail about her college books. I, too, wish the book covered her later life and activism. Still, interesting overall, especially the beginning when she relays what she remembers about her childhood and learning to communicate.

    I enjoyed learning about her early life and the process of learning to read and speak. And was impressed with her intelligence. However, about midway through the book, it seemed to bog down and become a bit tedious when discussing her higher education and travels. I believe the book covered the first 21 years of her life. I'd like to know more about her later life. The reader did a great job.

    I found most of the book really interesting and marvelled at how Helen coped and adjusted to being both blind and deaf. Her determination to succeed against the odds was inspirational to say the least. However towards the end of the book I found some of the passages difficult to concentrate on as Helen’s thoughts seemed somewhat rambling albeit intelligent. Like other readers I found the repetition at the beginning and the end of each chapter somewhat annoying . The reader did well especially through the difficult patches and pronunciation of German authors! I would like to read more about her later life as this book only covers her life to her early 20’s.

    I found it interesting to be put in shoes of a blind and deaf person. Her character and thoughts are still echoing in my head.
