I have had such wonderful feedback from my readers. I'd like to share their comments with you.
You had a good grasp of the struggles that a blind person goes through in order to function in society. It was fascinating to read about all the steps Peter had to take in order to just get from the boarding house to his job. You did a nice job on some of the supporting characters as well. The gay characters were not stereotypical in the least, and it made the other characters feel like the same amount of forethought had gone into them. The ending was well done and focused. It definitely kept me guessing. Writer's Digest 2011
I opened your book when I got home, and couldn't put it down. I am not a night owl, but stayed awake until the wee hours to finish your novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I look forward to your next novel. J. Kimmel, OH
I have almost completed Blind Vision by Karen Fritz! . . . I highly recommend this murder mystery. It is in the vein of a Sandra Brown novel. G. Blackwelder, NC
OMG, I can't put it down and it's sooo spooky to read at home alone! J. Ables, TX
I just finish Blind Vision. Thank you for creating Peter Cole's "journey" to bravery, self understanding, independence, love, and manhood. A job well done. Congratulations!!!!!!! L. Flowler, NC
OMG, OMG, OMG!!!!! I just finished your book! You are one talented lady!!! I read a lot...a lot!!! I have read many books by authors that have written well known series that are NOT nearly as good as what you have written! I love the character development...I hope some of these characters (Peter, Ms. Ida, Joe) will be returning in the future! S. Smithson, NC
I read Karen's book, Blind Vision, and I loved it. It reminded me of Harlan Coban's books. It was easy to read and moved along quickly. No time was wasted on paragraph after paragraph of description. I read it in 2 days. I loved the characters especially Ms. Ida. As I read the book I could visualize the characters and could easily see this being made into a movie. Her character development was excellent.
I enjoyed all the twists and turns in the story, it makes it more interesting to read if you do not know what is going to happen next. The combination of a blind person that could see the future and a police detective trying to track a serial killer made for an interesting combination not to mention an exciting plot. The fact that this is Karen's first book is quite amazing. I think she will turn out to be a great writer. D. Salerno, PA
I haven't enjoyed a book so much in years. I loved all the characters and their personalities, especially Peter, who I fell in love with from the beginning. Despite his handicap, he seemed to move through the world with no regrets, looking forward, rather than backward. This was an awesome book with all the ingredients of suspense, mystery, romance and the unknown. The book moved along quickly and the short chapters made it easier to get to a stopping point. The day I got this book, I read the first chapter and set it aside for later. When I picked it up again, I couldn't put it down! I was glued to it for over 3 hours. "Blind Vision" draws you into the storyline. As I read, I visualized the characters, the way they looked and the way they talked. I could smell the urine in the alleyways and the pastries baking in the oven - I'd forgotten just how delicious it is to lose yourself in a really good novel.
I liked the surprise ending, but was left with wanting more. Hopefully, when the author has finished her 2nd book, there will be a sequel to this book in the future. I also think this would make a darn good movie! C. Griffin, NC
Hey! Finished the book (it only took me so long because I don't read much when I'm writing). Gotta say, great job! A plot that moves, character arcs, and active writing (you know how I am about that). It really turned out compelling--can't wait for #2!!! C. Graves, NC
