Robin Miles perfectly renders the miraculous story of a boy who could "see with sound." When Ben's eyes were removed at age 2 because of a rare cancer, his mother encouraged him to "see" with his senses of smell, touch, and sound. She soon overheard Ben make clicking sounds that alarmed her. The doctors said Ben had mastered the rare art of human echolocation, which taught him the size, shape, and location of objects through sound reflections. With empathy and sensitivity Miles perfectly delivers simple character sketches of Ben playing basketball and video games and riding his bike like a sighted child. The spiritual sides of both Ben and his mother come through clearly, as well. Miles provides an engaging narration. G.D.W. SYNC 2015 © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: JULY 2014]
