MIDDLETOWN, AMERICA One Town's Passage from Trauma to Hope

by | Read by Sandra Burr

Contemporary Culture • 16 hrs. • Unabridged • ©

Many stories have been told about September 11, 2001, and individual tragedies related to that day. This book looks at stories of the tragedies and how they were dealt with by a group of individuals who share the address of Middletown, New Jersey, a town that lost 50 people to the terrorist attacks. Based on interviews with survivors, relatives, and friends of the victims, it profiles the people and, to some extent, the town and its struggle to cope. Sandra Burr's narration is subtle and well paced, allowing the emotion of the townspeople to come through without being maudlin or sensational. She smoothly handles the dialogue of interviews, setting it apart by changing tone and pace. J.E.M. 2004 Audie Award Finalist
