    Story

    On the 78th floor of the World Trade Center’s north tower, no alarms sounded, and no one knew what had just happened at 8:46 a.m. that morning, September 11, 2001. Blind since birth, Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and his guide dog, Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team....

    Story

    I disagree with the reviewer who said that Mr. Hingson spent too much time discussing things other than his 9/11 experience. He spoke of his childhood experiences, college, grad school, his first job and the things that made him the man he is. The book isn't just about a blind man and his guide dog. It's much more universal than that. It's about trust and teamwork and helping each other along the way. It's about our shared humanity and how your own words or deeds can make a huge difference in someone's life. I enjoyed this book very much indeed. It gave me things to think about and reminded me to stop and smell the roses.

  • Angel in the Rubble: The Miraculous Rescue of 9-11's Last Survivor

    For 27 hours, Genelle remained below the surface of Tower One’s rubble. During this time, she couldn’t help but reflect on the life she’d lived and how she’d drifted from the faith she once knew. One of her most painful regrets was that she’d left her daughter behind in Trinidad while she pursued her dream of singing and dancing in America. She begged God to forgive her - accepting that she may soon die, but praying for the miracle of life and a chance to live that life with a new purpose and direction.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book and probably would have done better with a print edition. The reader totally ruined it for me. She has the inflection and delivery of a kindergarten teacher speaking slowly and with great drama and it made me insane. I shall avoid her in the future.

    For O.J. Simpson to get away with murder, an innocent cop, a brilliant detective, had to be destroyed. That was the cynical strategy of the Simpson defense. But as certainty about Simpson's guilt grew, so did the outrage about the scapegoating of Mark Fuhrman. Now the former LAPD detective tells his side of the story in a damning expose.

    "Dreadful Narration"
    Overall

    I listen to audio books while working in Photoshop so it's a quiet atmosphere. I was interested in this book but the narration ruins it. I can hear the stops and starts amid the droning and changes in inflection that seem to happen for no reason. It got so annoying/distracting that I just gave up. I am a long time Audible listener and I've never purchased a book that was such an audio mess.
