Farsighted - Emlyn Chand Farsighted is the debut novel by Emlyn Chand. After reading the synopsis, I was very interested in reading it. I had high hopes for Farsighted, but I will admit that I didn't like it as much as I was hoping I would.

What I liked: I really liked the idea for this story. I haven't read many books from the point of view of a blind person. I thought that the author did a great job of getting you into Alex's life and getting a sense of how he "sees" the world. I also liked the different types of "gifteds" that were in the book. Each was unique and interesting. I especially liked Simmi's gift of being able to influence people's emotions. The twist at the end was unexpected and a nice touch to the ending.

What I didn't like: I felt like the story was a little disjointed. It didn't flow well for me. I found parts of the book were a bit slow and didn't add much to advance the story. I also thought that some of the scenarios in the story came out of nowhere and the reactions of the characters weren't ones that seemed logical to me.

The ending of Farsighted leaves room for a sequel, so I'll probably pick up the sequel when it comes out. I look forward to seeing what happens to Alex, Simmi, Shapri and Dax.
