This book has helped me realize, I don't read enough non-fiction. I had to remind myself at times that this was a true story. Makes one wonder how the story of Louie Zamperini???s dramatic life was not already told.
College English professor who loves classic literature, psychology, neurology and hates pop trash like Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey.
Being a lover of horses, I was entranced by Hillenbrand's remarkably well-written "Seabiscuit," but, if it is possible, she creates an even more compelling drama with Unbroken, the story of another deep-hearted underdog who triumphs in the end. Highly recommended!
What a great story of endurance and perspective. One of the best listens in my library! I really enjoyed the historical information, the way Laura keeps track of all the characters thru the end. I really enjoyed this and would highly recommend. This helps you realize the depravity of all of us, the capability to endure, and the redemption possible thru forgiveness. Great job Laura and Edward.
I want to write something to emphasize how powerful this story is, but can only come up with... unbelievable! The determination to live and the power of forgiveness = powerful.
An amazing listen!! Zamperini's life was unbelieveable. His inner strength and courage and ability to affect others was infectious. I would love to meet this man and shake his hand and say thank you for carring a life long burden of memories of what he suffered in war to fight for our country. THIS BOOK, THIS MAN and THIS LIFE he led is like no other!
Best audio book I have ever "read"
I had to pull the car over to wipe tears from my eyes.
Louie is a true American hero!
This is a very engaging story. Well written, well read, interesting, uplifting and sad at the same time. Recommended.
This was such an amazing story. It's hard to believe that people could survive the torment and torture that these POWs endured. Louis Zamporini's life is an inspiring testament to the resilience of the human spirit!
I have been an Audible subscriber for nearly as long as it has been available. Unbroken is WITHOUT A DOUBT the best audio book I have ever listened to. A most listen!
What a an inspirational story. How these men stood all the torture and still survived Is amazing. It makes you proud of our military men and women.
