this story gets difficult at times. torture scenes are lengthy and frequent. point was established with one or two less inclusions.
Amazing example of what the human mind can endure and conquer! The trials of life make us who we are. It seems like as I grow older I unfortunately see less Louie's in this world!
If you read only one book about heroes make it this book. This is one of the most incredible stories I ever read. It is very well written and read.
I recommend this book to all who like true survival stories.
Long book, but I couldn't stop listening to this riveting saga. If you are into war stories, this has to be on your must read list. If you are interested in a testimony of human endurance and perseverance, this is your book too.
I'm absolutely at a loss of words. What a tragic, but beautiful story. It was very moving! So inspirational! The story was so well detailed, that I felt as if I could see it all! The narrator did great! I'm amazed at the horrendous streaks of bad luck Louis endured, but he still managed to rise above...Way above. wow. I wish the world had more people like him. What an angel. Kudos to the author for bringing his life experiences to vivid life. I would read anything you write. Beautiful talent!
The reading experience was very intimate and personal. It felt like Louie was a neighbor. Great story line and character development.
