Two voices, one story,

This review is from: Windows on the World (Kindle Edition)
This is a difficult book to review in that at times I loved it, and at times I hated it. At its best it tells a fictional story based in the Windows on the World restaurant during the 9/11 attacks. The writing in these sections is superb, moving, poignant and convincing. The other voice is less compelling and at times, irritating.
It also suffers from some strange editing towards the end, which is really distracting. At least the Kindle version does anyway. You will be happily reading when it will suddenly announce 'paragraph cut.' It does this 3 or 4 times, and there is no way to know if its deliberate or what it means. It is intensely annoying and distracts from the story.
On the whole, its a good book. I dislike all the other fiction 9/11/ books I have read, in fact I detested most of them, but this is the exception.
