    I absolutely loved this memoir as a unique and important book, and it has really stuck with me. You may already have heard of twelve-year-old Jonathan Bryan, as the '"locked-in" boy who learned to write with his eyes', as he's been featured on national TV and press as a remarkable w...

    This beautiful memoir should be read by anyone who has anything to do with disabled children, and anyone who reads, writes, or teaches. Basically, everyone could immeasurably benefit by reading this book. It is a gorgeous story told by a child with cerebral palsy about his journey to ...

    I have known of Jonathan for quite a long time now as he lives in the next village to me and my children went to the same mainstream primary school that he attended one day a week. This book is a fascinating read and gives a real insight into the difficulties he faces on a daily basis ...

    Are you trapped by your inability to see? How often have you looked at a person and only noticed the disability? In shame, I confess that this is me. I notice the wheelchair that speaks incapability And respond with an apology. Eyes stare back knowingly Looking at me with certain...

    Jonathan is loving, funny, clever, passionate and determined young boy, who also happens to have cerebral palsey and is unable to speak or communicate, or in fact do much for himself. But he hasn't let that get in his way! Jonathan's story, told by his mum and then by himself is a ...

    Appearances are deceiving. Don't judge the person by the wheelchair or other visible disabilities, especially when that person is a child. Don't limit them to YOUR expectations! An auto accident, a detached placenta, an emergency birth, cerebral palsy, kidney failure, kidney transpla...

    Truly Amazing It challenges our perception of what is inside a body which doesn't conform to a "normal boy" I particularly like the fact that we see photographs of him and the rest of his truly amazing family. I will try to encourage friends to read it too. ...

    Amazing Eye Opener A book everyone should read. My God daughter has a parallel condition and limits to Jonathan . We e mail all the time using the eye control. She lived independently with 24 hour care. This book is an absolute revelation to me both from her parents' point of view a...

    Wow! What an inspirational book. I haven't been gripped by a book like this in a long time. Jonathan has a gift with words to communicate an important message of the importance to teach ALL children regardless of their disability. Well worth reading. Short but profound. . A great gi...

    Amazing biography An amazing biography to read. Helps those of us who have so much to appreciate the gift we have. His selfless spirit and deep faith come through every page. I pray that those with the power will listen to his message and enable others to find their voice. ...

    Phenomenal, eye-opening and challenging This book should be read by everyone, particularly those in education. It is wonderful that because of Jonathan, those trapped in their own minds can speak for themselves and people will start to listen. ...

    Wow, this book should be essential reading for anyone in the medical profession, education or social care. Jonathan writes beautifully about his life and illness. I will be reading this again before sharing it far and wide. Fantastic ...

    Jonathan Bryan has severe cerebral palsy, a condition that makes him incapable of speech or voluntary movement. He was locked inside his own mind, aware of the outside world but unable to fully communicate with it until he found a way by using his eyes to laboriously choose individual ...

    I absolutely loved this memoir as a unique and important book, and it has really stuck with me. You may already have heard of twelve-year-old Jonathan Bryan, as the '"locked-in" boy who learned to write with his eyes', as he's been featured on national TV and press as a remarkable w...

    This book tells a stunning story of bravery, battles and brilliance. It is a very powerful story, of a young boy locked within a disabled body and how, with the help of his mother in particular, discovers a way to communicate and to tell of his amazing achievement. My 10 year old grand...

    Eye Can Write A memoir of a child?s silent soul emerging by Jonathan Bryan I was having a conversation with a small group of people, when one of them put a book into my hand without saying anything. I had heard of the book and thought I?d like to read it. It didn?t take long, ...

    A story of miracles I read Jonathan?s story for a selfish reason. My grandchild is also locked inside, nonverbal because she has Rett Syndrome. I know she?s in there, but the efforts to help her have been frustrating and disappointing so far. Jonathan?s story gives us encourag...

    A good book will change you forever, and that?s exactly what this book has done. I am truly astounded by what I have read and thus experienced, and I think I?m going to feel this way for quite a while. I truly recommend every single person to read this as it will educate you in a...

    Wow. Just wow. What a talent writer Jonathan is. A boy with no voice, specialists saying he can?t read and write. He has learnt, with his family, his own method of communicating; then met with government officials to campaign for everyone to be allowed to learn to read and write. B...

    I loved this book for so many reasons! The education it gave me about disability, the depth of emotion it invoked and most of all the sheer beauty of Jonathan?s language. I read it too quickly the first time because I was so gripped by Jonathan?s story but immediately re-read it in...

    When one of the most inconvenient things about everyday life is that the Chinese government blocks access to Goodreads, then you know it's time to stop whingeing and count your many blessings (though, seriously, why is Goodreads blocked here?!) Then it's time to read about someone (...

    Everyone should read this book Jonathan has opened my eyes to what needs to be changed in the education system and what can be achieved by anybody no matter what their physical disability. ...
