Bogie was able to do many things even though he is blind. This made me wounder if i could do all the things i do if i was blind or not. He was able to tech himself to play the guitar and even learned how to golf. being blind did not stop him from competing. I wounder if bogie was more determined because he si blind and felt that he had to prove he could do what other kids could do. I rated this book 4 stars because it left you wanting to know more about Bogie and what he would accomplish with the rest of his life. I think anyboby that has dreams would enjoy this book. It makes you feel like you can do anytyhing if you set your mind to it. I can tell you if Bogie won the golf tournament you will have to read the book your self to find that out. Which I recomened you do. The Million Dollar Putt by Dan Gutman is a fantastic book for all ages of kids. THis book is a sports-fiction so if you like sports books go and get this book at your local book store today.

The Million Dollar Putt had a lot of things in common with me. This book is mainly about golf, and I like golf a so that is the main reasons I chose this book in the beginning. There were many things that made this book interesting; however, there were parts that got a little boring.
The two main characters are Birdie, and Bogie. Birdie is a girl that is a neighbor of Bogie and is kind of weird. The blind man Bogie, likes playing guitars and playing golf. Bogie makes this book really good because you always think he is going to mess up, or something bad is going to happen. You have many doubts about him, for example, most people would predict that a blind man would never go out for golf, and if they did they would be horrible. He makes the book a lot more interesting
Overall, this book had a lot of ups and downs, but it was still good. You might like this if you like unpredictable books. I think anyone that does play golf would like this, especially people that like putting. I think blind people are underestimated and can do a lot more than people would think. That is why I think the point Dan Gutman was trying to make is you can do almost anything if you really try.
I liked this book. Although i believe that the dad should have given him more support when he wanted to golf at the beginning. They live in Hawaii and i thought that was creative because most people would have just made them live in like a more popular golfing area. The boy might have been blind but he had natural, raw, talent. -Kassidy
