Thunder Dog- Book Review

I really enjoyed this book. The story is of a blind man and his dog Roselle, who have to escape the terror attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11. The story was great because the author really not only talked about living as a blind person in a sighted work. He explained how he grew up and how it was for him. He did not try to evoke sympathy for being blind or consider his blindness a disability. He just showed how there were other ways to navigate in the world and looked forward to the challenges that awaited him. It was a touching story of friendships through trials and tribulations and how faith can bring you to where you need to be. So many times I forgot that the author was blind because of his excellent descriptions of his surroundings. Highly recommend
