OFF THE GRID Living Blind Without the Internet

by | Read by T. David Rutherford

Contemporary Culture • 3.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2015

T. David Rutherford's ebullient narration captures the delightful personality, humor, and friendships of Robert Kingett as he resolves to relinquish all things technological for one month. This resolution is particularly noteworthy because, being blind, Kingett relies heavily on technology. Rutherford presents a deeply personal view of Kingett's blindness and desire for independence. Listeners will enjoy hearing Kingett learn about his new home in Chicago. Most intriguing are his observations about how much richer, in some ways, his life is when he talks on the phone with his friends rather than texting, and when he becomes more fully involved with simpler things because he is freed from constantly relying on his "gadgets." When Kingett returns to his technological life, he is a much wiser man. S.G.B. [Published: JANUARY 2016]
