    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....

    NYNM says: "Good but too broad"
    "Brilliant combo of writer and reader, loved it"

    What made the experience of listening to Thunder Dog the most enjoyable?

    I loved the confidential, quiet way that Christopher Prince reads the book, I felt as though he was talking just to me. Michael Hingson sustains the tension of that fateful morning, descending the 78 floors, nine steps turn, 10 steps turn, repeated over and over. Interwoven with the story of his life and information about the the sight impaired. It has changed my perception for ever.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well of course Michael and Roselle are the heros in the book.


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Prince – was your favorite?

    Michael himself


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me understand how ignorant and arrogant we sighted people are


    Any additional comments?

    The beautiful reading of the book made it a wonderful experience for me
