Full Title: The True Story of a Blind Man, His
Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero
By: Oasis Audio
Length: 6 hrs., 31 mins.
My mental jot notes :
- I feel like there was a lot of product promoting for blind users.
- The book would’ve been shorter if the author never felt compelled to give us back stories for everything!
- By chapter 11, there was reflections from the author’s wife, it became confusing… sometimes I don’t know who was talking.
I’m not going to lie, I was kind of relieved when the audiobook was officially over. Not to say that the book was terrible, but I think it could’ve been a lot shorter as it did a lot of back and forth and backstories about specific parts; Michael’s after-thoughts.
I will admit, I did learn a few things. For instance, reasons why some premature babies might’ve gone blind in the early 20th century – excess oxygen levels being pumped into an incubator, or as it’s called Retinopathy of prematurity.
This is a truly interesting recounting of a terrible tragedy that changed the world forever. A man and his guide dog, and how with a little help with faith and a coworker, they managed to survive the attacks on the World Trade Centres in New York, USA.
