Thunder Dog

Thunder Dog, by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory is the amazing story of a blind man, Michael, and his guide dog, Roselle, making their way down 78 flights to escape one of the twin towers in New York City on September 11 2001.

Michael Hingson had a pretty normal life as a child, he rode his bike and played with other kids and went to school as well. The only difference is Michael is Blind, and has a service dog named Roselle. He works in the World Trade Center as a regional sales manager on the 78th floor. He went to work like any other day although for what was about to happen on September 11th 2001,it would change his life forever as well as the lives of so many people. Hearing the sounds as the first plane hit the building not really knowing what had happened, only knowing that they had to evacuate the building and could only use the stairs. So they journey begins as each step gets them closer to the exit of the building. The find out as the are going down what is really taking place around them.

This was an amazing book and am so glad I got to read it and as we approach the 10 year anniversary of that tragic day, it was an inspiration that there is still hope and triumph on a day that so many felt loss and hurt and sadness. I would recommend this book to everyone. And am thankful that I was able to read it and review it through Booksneeze.

I give this book 5 stars and Highly recommend it!
