review 1: This book is a shortened version of 'Between heaven and Ground Zero', another book written by Haskin but by being short it doesn't seem to loose anything.This short account tells of one woman's account of being inside the World Trade Centre during the Terror attacks back in 2001. It gives an interesting insight into what went on inside the towers and the conditions faced by those trying to escape - an insight I haven't read anywhere else before so found really interesting. It was amazing to read that the flames from the planes had made it so low down in the buildings and that the rumblings and creakings from the buildings structure were there throughout.Haskin is a religious lady, and she litters her account with quotes from the bible. I'm not religious at all, but these q... moreuotes fitted perfectly with the account being given and really added to the poignancy of what was being said.Although short, this was a really good account of what happened in the towers - very informative, poignant and emotional - emotions that really apply to the whole world that day.
review 2: Leslie Haskin's horrifying account of her narrow escape from the World Trade Center on September 11, 2011 is unforgettable. Haskin begins her account describing her commute, her daily routine, and the appearance of the building on her last day at her job in the World Trade Center. Her account is both heart wrenching and poignant. The tale of her escape is both horrific, terrible, and amazing. Haskin describes in detail the horrible things she witnessed, from the deaths and dead bodies, to the brave fireman who climbed the tower to their untimely deaths. This is a book you will not want to put down. A must read for any history buff, or anyone who just wants to know more about what happened that fateful day. less

Again, I am a sucker for these stories. Amazed at the survival skills of these victims.
I know that most readers loved this book. I just didn't.
A shockingly honest portrayal of the events of 9/11.
