Reviews - What do customers think about Face Blind?

Really Good!  Mar 30, 2007
This is my first book I've read off of Raymond Benson's James Bond novels but I wasn't disappointed!

It tells the story about a woman named Hannah McCleary who has "prosopagnosia", a real life condition where you can't recognize human faces. Ever since she was brutally attacked a few years earlier Hannah has had to live with this, only recognizing a few faces a day but can't remember new ones.

Because of this she eventually runs into trouble with a misogynist who tries to take advantage of her, and a cousin with a bad friend who takes her name for drug deals. Wonder how all this will end up...

Despite Raymond Benson taking his time to write some other books besides the James Bond ones, it shows to others he is capable of making great novels like this one than just staying to James Bond.

PS, I actually met him substituting at my high school!!!
A fantastically woven tale with research that shows through the pages!  Jan 26, 2007
I'll start off by saying that I have prosopagnosia. In fact, I've had it for as long as I can remember. Mine was one of the first personal web sites on the web which discussed it. Anyway, I have some authority to write this review, both as a reader and as an interested person.

That being said, it is often extremely difficult to communicate some of the subtleties involved in living with prosopagnosia. Benson managed to vividly capture some of those difficulties in this book. I almost found myself literally crying with the sincerity of some of the descriptions of situations Hannah experienced. Most people have a very difficult time grappling with the social nuances of "not being able to recognize people", but Benson did a masterful job of this through relating some of Hannah's day-to-day struggles as well as those exceptional circumstances which arise throughout the book.

For those who are interested in just a glimpse of what life can be like for a person with prosopagnosia, this is a magnificent starting point. True, it is a work of fiction, but I can tell that it was also a work of sincere care crafted by Benson. If you want the real deal about "life with prosopagnosia", even though the story is fiction, BUY THIS BOOK, because the experiences could just as easily have really happened.
Very Good Book!!!!  Jun 2, 2004
This was a really suspensful novel! I enjoyed it a lot!

Quoting Arlington reader: "Are you the freakin author? I find all of these reviews SUSPECT.".

NO! Raymond Benson lives in Chicago. And besides, you didn't review the book!

Great book!  Mar 9, 2004
I just read "Face Blind" and came to leave my own 5-star review, and then saw the ridiculous review from "the reader from Illinois"--which doesn't review the book at all but rather gives a 2-star review to the "reviewer from New York." Sheesh, get a life. Did you like the book or not? I guess you really didn't read it. Anyway, I thought Benson's new book was very suspenseful. It had me up all night! I recommend it to anyone who like suspense books with strange, twisted characters.
What is up with the "reader from New York, NY"  Feb 20, 2004
You have reviewed EVERY Raymond Benson book out there, and given all of them 5 stars. You have written similar reviews, in PR style with lots of "quotables", for each and every book. Are you the freakin author? I find all of these reviews SUSPECT.
