That Day In September

That Day in September - Artie Van Why I was given a copy of this book by the author in return for an honest review.This is a very hard book to review. Not because of the subject matter, even though it is a difficult subject, but because of the emotions this book evokes.It is one man's account of what happened on September 11th 2001, and the emotions (shock, denial, anger, grief, depression) that he went through after the attack on the twin towers of the Trade Centre.I remember that day in September, and it had a huge impact on my life. Even though I lived thousands of miles away from New York, the shockwaves of the events of that day shook the city I lived in at the time. I had just about finished my working day when the reports came in about the first plane. By the time I got home and switched on the TV, I sat and watched in stunned silence when the second plane hit. Reading this book brought those images back to life, and gave them an even more poignant feeling. I am not ashamed to say that I was in tears for most of the book. Artie Van Why's account of that day will stay with me for a long time. His story, and those of the other survivors deserves to be read.I would like to thank Mr. Van Why for sharing his story with me. And I hope that you will share his story too, to honour those whose lives had been shattered by the events on that day in September. - Lynn Worton (WaAR)
