I listen to audiobooks during my thirty minute drive to and from work, and I’ve just finished a great one. It’s REPORT FROM GROUND ZERO by Dennis Smith. It’s an oral history of the WTC attacks on 9/11, told mostly from the perspective of firefighters and other emergency personnel that responded that morning. Particularly interesting are some of the accounts of rescue workers trapped in the wreckage after the collapse of the towers and the look into the operations and thinking of the FDNY.
The 6-CD audiobook I listened to is an abridgement, but the readers were so good and the performances so heartfelt that I still recommend it.
