WAKE-UP CALL The Political Education of a 9/11 Widow

by | Read by Kristen Breitweiser

Biography & Memoir • 6 hrs. • Abridged • © 2006

Kristen Breitweiser's story is as compelling as she is controversial for failing to accept at face value the loss of her husband on 9/11. In WAKE-UP CALL, Breitweiser explains the motivation that compelled her and other 9/11 widows, sometimes called "The Jersey Girls," to become politically active and to criticize the Bush Administration for its alleged failings before and after the attacks. Breitweiser reads with intensity and a sense of purpose that translates superbly to audio. Oddly, at times Breitweister's voice makes her sound too plaintive, distracting from an otherwise strong performance for a narrator clearly new to audiobooks.
