Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson

Michael is a blind man with a guide dog. Now, they are walking down the steps of the twin towers, trying to escape the the burning building, that has been crashed into by a plane.

This story was a perfect mix of a factual recount of the 9/11 crash, the emotional side to Michael’s experience and Michael’s retelling of his life as a blind man. The book described many of the obstacles he had to overcome as well as, first-hand, how he managed to marry, work and go to school. However, my only criticism is that the book glossed over long periods of his life with just a few sentences to summarise them, whereas other years were recounted in much more detail. In my view, the book should be more balanced. On the other hand, I would definitely recommend this to anyone of any age who is interested. The retelling of the 9/11 crash from a blind man’s perspective is shocking, but gripping.

I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!
