About the author
Janet Decaster Perrin. Ruby the Foster Dog. Jimmy Wayne. I initially ordered it because of the "handsome" labrador on the cover.
Having two labs of my own I am drawn to books about dogs. But this book is so much more. It is a book about faith, about teamwork, about life in general. It is educational. If an audible book can be a page turner, it is that too.
There were times I sat in my car longer then I had too because I didn't want to stop listening. The extras at the end of the book, a speech by the President of the Federation of the Blind, a speech by the author and an interview of the author were bonuses. Don't hesitate to purchase this book! This is the autobiography of a blind man who was on the 84th floor of the first World Trade Tower when the plane hit. It tells the story of how he and his guide dog went down the steps and what that was like.
In each chapter he weaves in how some aspect of how growing up blind helped him to be strong and calm through a very scary situation. It was a fascinating book. I listened to it with my 12 and 16 year old son and daughter. THey really enjoyed it and got together to finish the book after we got home from our road trip.
This was a great way to introduce both the topic of what it would be like living as a blind person, having a guide dog as well as what it was like the day the WTC fell. It seems like it happened yesterday, but most young people who are in high school have no memory of that time, as they were too young. The tape finishes with a recording of the author telling his story to a live audience. This was a really good listen!
I disagree with the reviewer who said that Mr. He spoke of his childhood experiences, college, grad school, his first job and the things that made him the man he is. The book isn't just about a blind man and his guide dog. It's much more universal than that. It's about trust and teamwork and helping each other along the way. It's about our shared humanity and how your own words or deeds can make a huge difference in someone's life.
I enjoyed this book very much indeed. It gave me things to think about and reminded me to stop and smell the roses. I was just browsing thru Audible, when I discovered another person's review. Naturally the title caught my attention because it had a blind man, and I'n hoping to get a guide dog 1 day. I thought that the book was going to be about another blind man trying to get out of something. Was I wrong. His faith is what touched and still touches me. If he can do all the things in the book, then I can do anything! Michael, it was and still worth it. And it was good. The problem was that it was more about Mr.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why? I would and have reccomended this book to everyone I can This book not only taught me about life as someone who is not sighted, it taught me about courage, fight and partnership. It made me laugh and it made me cry. It stirred feelings in me that made me rage and then it made me just feel content. Who was your favorite character and why?
Thunder Dog by Michael Hingson | Koorong
I could never pick just one. All that are spoken about are so interwoven that to pick one would not do them or the others any justice. Which character — as performed by Christopher Prince — was your favorite? Since the book was read as a fist person narritive of the author, it's hard to answr this question. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh, cry and want to fight everyone in this world who is ignorant or prejudice. Any additional comments?
It has made me so very happy to have spent this time with Michael. Thank-you for sharing your story as well as that of Karen, Roselle, all of your friends and family, your dogs and the WTC! RIP to all that lost their lives!
Thunder Dog: The True Story of a Blind Man, His Guide Dog, and the Triumph of Trust at Ground Zero
The information concerning the dogs and their training was interesting to me; Hingson's life; not so much. The book is also well written and the narrator does a good job with it. I believe that a lot of people will enjoy this audiobook more than I did. I really enjoy stories about service dogs, so I was inclined to like this before I even started it. It's difficult for me to separate my personal interest sometimes from the merits of whatever book in question but this is one that was an amazing story even without my preexisting service dog fascination.
I've been recommending this book to everyone I know. I found myself finding ways to bring it up in conversation. What other book might you compare Thunder Dog to and why? I got the recommendation from Audible to buy this book after i read "A street cat named Bob" by James Bowen - one of the best animal biographies I've ever read. It was a good recommendation. How does this one compare?
