Book Review: Thunder dog by Michael Hingson with Susy Flory
I not only read this book but I also read much of it out loud to my son who is almost 10 years old--With him, I did leave out a couple of graphic parts about burn victims. Both he and I enjoyed this book. The story easily kept both of our attentions and he didn't want me to stop reading. Besides a behind-the-scenes look at the tragedy of Sept. 11, I believe we both also learned more about the way blind people wish to be viewed from those of us with sight. Hingson offers some "courtesy rules of blindness" to read at the end of the book that could be helpful in relating to blind folks. Overall, this book was an inspiring adventure written with a wonderful rhythm as I learned about Hingson's early life as a blind man and how his experiences helped him survive. I highly recommend it.
In the interest of full disclosure, I was provided a complimentary copy of this book through Booksneeze. I was not required to write a positive review.
