Buffalo fire fighter Donny Herbert was reduced to a vegetative state for nearly a decade after a home collapsed on him during a rescue. This powerful account of his experience is poignantly captured by narrator Kimberly Farr. She seems a natural choice for this audiobook--her firm, compassionate voice realizes Blake's story in a solid performance that puts the focus on Herbert, the way it should be. Farr relates the story in a sympathetic and engaging way but allows listeners to control their own emotions without feeling manipulated. Overall, this is a captivating and impassioned story.
