What We Are Reading Today: Fall and Rise by Mitchell Zuckoff

Author Mitchell Zuckoff captures the stories of 9/11 in a way that has not been done before. 

Masterfully weaving together multiple strands of the events in New York; at the Pentagon; and in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, Fall and Rise is a mesmerizing, minute-by-minute account of that day.

Zuckoff’s accounts of the attack, the victims, and the victims’ families “is mesmerizing,” according to a review published in goodreads.com

“The page count seems large but you will not notice it once you start reading. By the end, you are left wanting to hear more about the people, their stories, to know them. Don’t pass up the opportunity to read this book,” it added. 

Zuckoff is also the author of Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II

In a review published in The New York Times, Clyde Haberman said the book “is painful to read. Even with the passage of nearly 18 years, reliving modern America’s most terrible day hits an exposed nerve that you thought had been fully numbed, only to discover that the ache was merely in remission.”
