Good Read

by katymontrose on Sep 6, 2012

If you enjoy football, you'll love this book. Michael Oher's story woven into the details of playing football is a must read for a sports enthusiast.

The real story

by Kenny P on Sep 2, 2010

Having seen the movie prior to reading the book, I was often reminded of scenes from the movie as I read. There is definitly artistic license taken but overall, a lot of similarity. The book offers much greater explanation of the term "blind side" and the workings of rating and recruiting high school football players. I would recommend this for anyone interested in athletics.

The Blind Side

by johnscot90 on May 13, 2010

The movie was great...but the book is better. I assumed some liberties were taken in the movie and a few were. But overall the movie is an accurate reflection of remarkable people joining together to bring radical change to a truly amazing person. A great read and a great movie.

Great book!

Wow, I didn't think I was going to like this book because I am not a football fan. I got the book as part of a book group. It is excellent! Very well written so I could get thru the football jargon, etc. I actually learned a few things. Michael Oher is an amazing person! You can tell from the beginning he knew what he wanted to be when he grew up. The Touey's (the family that adopted him) were great to do what they did. Where Lee Ann Touey found all the people to help this kid along I will never know; but, if more people in the world took this example and put it in to action, the kids in the world would be in better shape! I loved this book! It made me go to the internet to look up these people and see where they are now. Check this book out; you won't be disappointed.

for football fans who understand football

by weneedrain on Jul 9, 2009

I would skip to the second half of the book if you are not truly interested in the tactical aspects of football. The story of Michael Ohr and the family who took him in is rather remarkable and worth knowing about.Otherwise , not being a football fan, I would skip this book
