REPORT FROM GROUND ZERO The Story of the Rescue Efforts at the World Trade Center

by | Read by Scott Brick

Contemporary Culture • 18 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

This is a difficult book to listen to, not only because we're still close to the event but also because it is unrelentingly somber and sad. The author, a fireman and writer, volunteered for duty at Ground Zero on September 11, and he tells a tragic tale. Narrator Scott Brick is appropriately subdued, as he alternates between slow, deliberate descriptions of unspeakable horror and rapid-fire, breathless imagery designed to make us feel as if we are there. In some spots Brick goes too slowly and is too somber, but his vocal choices are understandable given the material. Overall, Brick gets it right. R.I.G.
