Amazing!! An enthralling epic story of a true American hero. One of the best books I have ever read. Easily in the the top 2. I'm not going to write a full review. So many other folks have written great reviews here, you can read those. Let me save you some time and money though. I finished the book on a weekday afternoon and just had to go see the movie in the theater ASAP. I went that night... and walked out not even half way through. It is known that the book is always better than the movie, but I just wanted to yell at the screen "NOOO!!! You ruined it". Read the book, It is a true Masterpiece. Never had a book make me tear up before. I wish every book I read could be this wonderful.
From cover to cover.
Through out the whole book I was hooked and could not stop hearing as the amazing tale of Louis Zamperini unfolded before me, it was incredible.
I saw the movie Unbroken before l read the book. I was so glad I did. The movie like most was nowhere as good as the book, and it left me with a lot of unanswered questions.
I new I had to get my hands on the book after seeing the movie. I couldn't put the book down! I will be going out to pick up the movie on DVD when it comes out. However I can see myself reading this book again or giving it as a gift to friends and family.
The connection to family war experiences.

Too many to list!
I've listened to many books on audible and this has to be one of the very best. The message is wonderful and the communication of the message by the author is excellent. I recommend the book to all.
Incredible story -overcoming unimaginable circumstances. Couldn't put it down. Edward Herrmann gives a great performance retelling the Zamperini saga. Easy listening.
