I got this book because to be honest I knew very little of this act of terrorism. It got very little news coverage where I am from. This book is very well written. Why should you buy this. It is a first hand account of what really happened and the effects of this act of terrorism. At times I felt like I was actually there. Even if you think you know what happened this book provides an insite that only a person that experienced this can have. I can not express how much I learned from reading this book.

A quick and compelling read of one man's personal account of an act of domestic terrorism that I knew nothing about prior. Very informative... difficult to imagine having to deal with such events firsthand after being shaken up by what happened in OKC only a mere few months before. Moments of levity kept the story from being too heavy and yet didn't detract from the weight of the awful situation. As I read, I felt vulnerable right along with the author and can only imagine how his experience would continue to affect him to this day.

So, after being referred to the book on facebook, and knowing Neal's work from the game Betrayal of Krondor, I had to read it.

Just finished it and the spiral of emotions Neal makes you accompany him through was awesome. The best way to decribe it - it is the first - "first person shooter" book i have ever read. The humor hits at just the right points, with the incredible absurdity tossed in continually. Specifically, the contents of his backpack and the thoughts Improving on... well I don't want to give his story away... almost did.

Definitely worth recommending - now he just has to write the Templar novel... before I finish mine!

I bought this book to read, because it was recommended by a friend. What an amazing story! Living in Oklahoma, I have witnessed the effects of terrorism through the Oklahoma City Bombing. I saw the Murrah Building's devastation on the news, and saw it after some of the clean up occurred and before the memorial was built. I have visited the memorial and it is very humbling. However, this book is about a different event that didn't receive much publicity. It is a firsthand account of one man's experience on a train bound for California that is sabatoged by terrorists. What makes it chilling, is that it is a true story. This would make a great movie!

A tightly written narrative of a very frightening time. Imagine standing alongside your freshly derailed train and finding a note telling you it was no accident. What would you do? Panic your fellow passengers? This was one of the things the author had to face in the worst waking nightmare of his life.

People tend to forget that terrorism has been present in America in some form or fashion throughout its existence...it didn't start with 9/11 or even with the Oklahoma City bombing. The deliberate act of sabotage against the Sunset Limited and its passengers is truly terrifying because it could happen anywhere at any time, and the reasoning behind such acts is difficult for most of us to understand. Neal Hallford's personal account is an excellent read; he presents the unfolding of the incident in a very straightforward manner, in a way only someone who has lived through it could do.

"The Derailment of the Sunset Limited" is not just about tragedy, however. It is also about perseverance and hope, survival and courage. I read the book straight through and I recommend that you do the same.

I really enjoyed reading The Derailment of the Sunset Limited. Also a filmmaker, author Neal Hallford uses great visual style, interesting detail, and bits of humor to describe first-hand a harrowing event in his life that left a lasting imprint. I felt like I was there on the train with the unknowing passengers on that fateful night, and appreciate the opportunity to read and review it. I would love to see this story made into a film, and look forward to more from this writer.

Neal Hallford provides a compelling accounting of his experience as a survivor of an attempted terrorist attack on America's rail lines. It's a quick read, while also entertaining. While I find myself, at times, cursing the expansion of federal agencies and their attempts to keep us safe from terrorists, stories like these remind us that we have to have SOME kind of security in place because there are people out there who will hurt others in order to get their cause or point across.

This is a good read.
