Unbroken is the best book Ive listened to. I almost listened to it in one sitting, impossible to put down.
The main character Louis.
This is the only performance Ive heard from Ed Herrmann, he was great.
This book was truly inspiring and very intense. I was totally captivated by the harrowing journey of the main characters. It's amazing what human beings can endure! It was very well performed. I am easily bored and this book kept my full attention all the way through.
The truth of the story, and excellent writing
I learned so much about the Pacific WW ll story that I am amazed this has not been more highly spoken of! Where was I in History class? Was it even covered? I'm not a history fan but this is an eye opening factual story! Like I said, all should be reading this book from teenagers to late adults.
Put this on the list of must reads and share with your friends!
Aircraft Pilot and Mechanic with Mission Aviation Fellowship in Africa.
I don't know, but it is great to have someone put inflections into it.
How he is redeemed.
Adrift, Japanese prison camp, and a man reborn.
I didn't realize how harshly the Japanese treated the prisoners.
the very best
didnt want to shut it off
captivating and true
Now I understand why some call this the "greatest generation"
Louis Zamborini has changed my life
The tears that came down when the POWs realized the war was over.
He has a soothing and entertaining voice
He brought me back to the 40's
I both laughed and cried, mostly I just appreciate life more
I was not prepared to be so affected. A must read in today's world where so many young people feel 'different' and 'indifferent'. No one ever knows how resilient they can be until tested.
Close to the top! If you think the Japanese did not deserve the atomic bomb, after listening to this you will change your mind! I learned things about the B-24 that I did not know, and I'm an Aero-Space engineer. I understand this is being made into a movie. If they do not include all of it, including what changed Louie, Shame, Shame, Shame!
Louie at 2nd Billy Graham Crusade!
Life as a Japanese POW!
I am really impressed with the amount of researce that went into this book to provide the storyline of even Japanese guards.
What a heart-wrenching story of an American hero. I found a quote from the book while I was looking for a sermon illustration. I used the quote in my sermon and one of my listeners asked me about one of the characters from the book. Caught flat-footed, I admitted that I just needed the quote. He quickly convinced me that the book was impossible to put down and I owed it to myself to read the whole thing. He was absolutely right. I could hardly put it down.
I would recommend this book bc it is a great story of survival both mental and physical. This story gives you an intimate look at the capacity to endure suffering and the ultimate victory over the demons that come with that suffering.
The moment in the raft when they are desperate for water and Louie hears someone singing, he later cries out in prayer and it begins to rain.
I laughed and I cried and I though, so in the words of Jimmy V I "had a full day" while reading this book
Inspiring, Moving, Amazing!
I loved, that despite all Louie's struggles his spirt was never broken.
