Want insight on being blind read Thunder dog

Postby Lightening Bug » Thu Jul 12, 2018 7:49 am

Wonder if you have thought about what it would be like to be blind or deaf? I have thought about it once in a while. Picked up a book at the library that I thought would be about a dog, title Thunder Dog. And, yes, it is about a dog, a service dog named Roselle. But the larger picture is she's a service dog for a blind man. Well after reading this book I have a new perspective about what a blind person is capable of.

Goodreads review

Thunder Dog allows you entry into the isolated, fume-filled chamber of stairwell B to experience survival through the eyes of a blind man and his beloved guide dog. Live each moment from the second a Boeing 767 hits the north tower, to the harrowing stairwell escape, to dodging death a second time as both towers fold into the earth.

It's the 9/11 story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. Thunder Dog illuminates Hingson's lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world, and how the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith in each one of us.

Not a long boook but very worthwhile.

Take care. :D
