Book: Fall and Rise The Story of 9/11
Author: Mitchell Zuckoff
This is my 80th read for this year
This book recounts almost minute by minute what happened on 9/11 with many people involved. Back stories of people on the planes, in the towers, part of the rescue effort come alive in this book to paint a picture of who the people we lost truly were. We get to hear many of their last words, and how ordinary people became extrodinary on a beautiful sunny day in September 20 years ago.
This book was incredible. After 20 years I cannot watch a single story or documentary, or read a single book without bursting into tears. This book delves into details I never knew before, and brings to life the people who were lost. We hear about their last days, their lives before 9/11, and what happened to them and their families on that day. I was captivated by every word.
This book will rip your heart out. You will mourn for the people who were lost and the families who continue to mourn them. But you will also celebrate the people they were. Don't miss this one.
