What do you think about the Book?

Understanding September 11th is a story describing the horrific terrorist attack America experienced in 2001. Mitch Frank explains who the terrorists were that hijacked the four planes and flew three of them into major buildings of the United States and why they attacked us. He helps readers who may not have been there to experience it fist hand, feel as though they were living through the disasterous events at the Twin Towers as well as at the Pentagon.

"I can still remember the boom of the first explosion. I wish I had known at the time what it meant. But when you live in New York City, it's not that odd to hear the occasional boom outside your apartment window. I just figured it was construction, a little loud but not out of the ordinary. But it was the sound of a commercial airline slamming into the north tower of the World Trade Center. It was the sound that announced that nothing would be the same in my city again. It was the sound that woke America up.""Americans suddenly realized that our own country, which has always seemed safe, was vulnerable to groups that hate us for our beliefs, our foreign policy, or just because we are Americans."

The beginning of the book started off very intriguing and kept me wanting to read on. At the bottom of each page in the book, was a timeline following every event of the day America was attacked. After discussing the events on September 11, 2001, the book began to give background information on what Islam is and things of that nature and lost sight of the tragic event. I think the book could have been better if it had included more stories of the attacks, such as personal survivor stories.
