What an experience this book is to read! I do not imagine that you will be the same after you read it; it may affirm the way you feel about our world and living with the many ethnic backgrounds that populate our world or it may cause you to stop and re-evaluate how you react to the world at large. Mr. Hime has obviously done an incredible amount of research on Viet Nam, religion and the after-effects of our country following 9/11. What is so profound is the courage that Mr. Hime shows in assessing his feelings after he fled for his life that day. There is no anger or demand for justice; in fact, there are poignant reminders of how life affects all of us given the circumstances of our birth. In addition, Mr. Hime captures the language, the spirit and the way of life in South Texas that perhaps many who read this book will not have experienced. As we approach the tenth anniversary of 9/11, it behooves all of us to be reminded that we do not exist in a bubble; that our lives are impacted on every level by other religions, other ways of thinking, other ways of living. Mr. Hime has written an incredible tale of "what was" and "what can be". Truly amazing!

Three Thousand Bridges is an extraordinary accomplishment. This American story needs telling, and Hime who was sitting in a WTC conference room watching the first plane hit, somewhere in the stairwell during the second impact tells it with particular insight. In a context of war, hate and anger, Hime somehow delivers a message of peace, tolerance and hope while providing insight that should permeate our lives. Three Thousand, seemingly simple, delivers depth and insight that is hard to match. Not only will this one stick with you, it is fun and impossible to put down.

Have you ever eaten fried potatoes at a rickety table in a South Texas cafe? Have you ever had to stifle the flames on a burning oil rig? Did you go to Viet Nam and find yourself in the line of fire from an invisible sniper? Did you take your old truck on the road two days after 9/11? Well, here is the opportunity to live with Cole Simms while he saves you from having to do these things. While you may not like him, you'll respect him and you will stay with him to the last epage.

Cole's boy and I are "partial to books. Serious books. Real literature." And I love a darned good story. This is it.

Jim has written a very compelling novel. It boast a bevy of absolute characters, and Hime weaves a story that will bring the tears and the laughter. Jim obviously has in-depth research on the subject, but more than that, it comes through in his writing, that he has lived parts of this tale. The tragedy and triumph of Cole Simms lives in complex ways in all of us. Go hug your kids, your pets and your friends and remember 9/11. Thanks Jim. It's a fine, fast read.

In light of the 10th anniversary of the 09/11 attacks, Mr. Hime has written a wonderful book which not only reflects on his personal experiences on that day but also incorporates a variety of different viewpoints which allows the reader to think more broadly as to how these events affected so many people. Mr. Hime has done an excellent job in conducting his research as evidenced in his book. It's one of those books you cannot put down while reading. I recommend this book as it really allows the reader to think about how the events of 09/11 changed so many peoples' lives.

As is true for most Americans, the events of September 11, 2001 are seared in my memory, every detail of that day as clear as if it was yesterday. Although a fan of Mr. Hime's other books, I was hesitant about reading this one because of the memories and emotions tied to that day. It was hard to believe anyone could tell a story about Sept. 11 and do it justice - not even if they were there - yet Jim has done just that. With painfully real characters and salty Texas prose, Jim takes you on a journey across Texas, across America...and across time...to a place where even the most damaged soul can find hope. It's been two days since I finished the book and I still feel caught up in the story, my only disappointment being that it is over. Profound. Moving. Inspiring. Read it!

Hime has a very good eye for the sound of dialogue, particularly Texans. I give him 5 stars for that. I downgrade him a bit because the plot development could benefit from one more rewrite.
