Book Review: Crashing Through by Robert Kurson


A CLPL Book Club read, for the fiction club but this is one of their non-fiction selections, based on the life of Mike May, one I had to catch up on because I had to teach when they met for this read.  I thought it was interesting but at times a bit too campy or cheesy.  I thought Mike May was a little too obsessed with seeing women (and their body parts) when he gained his sight; but, it is a somewhat hopeful and uplifting book, just not enough to make it truly memorable.
