As an only casual nonfiction reader, this book blew me away with the quality of the storytelling and character development. Eggers creates a truly memorable scene as he introduces Zeitoun and his family and their New Orleans before the tragedy of Hurricane Katrina. The book causes readers to think about issues of basic humanity, but also larger issues about our government and its continual violations of civil rights in the wake of September 11. This was a wonderful discussion book for our book club.

This is a moving, scary account of the tenacity of a couple caught in an unbelievable situation. One cannot help but wonder if this could happen to any one of us.

the dogs waiting haunted me b/c it is so very representative of all those who were helpless and were waiting and waiting.

I agree with the comments above. A very well written book that shows us how quickly those freedoms we take for granted can be thrown out the window in times of crisis.
