Excellent book, great portrayal of events, details, feelings, and perceptions. I appreciate the effort put in to make sure this was not just one person's experience, excellent use of quotes from others who were there. Great ending!
An epic tale of adversity and courage simply told by the late Edward Hermmann.
Re reading the time in the raft, it could be modern parallel of Exodus.
I read the epilogue over and over. Louis Zamperini is a better man than I.
I think everybody should this book. It has the has the right amount of action, informational facts, and emotion. Best book I have ever read, period.
This book changes something deep inside of you. You live the lives of the men who died or those who were tortured for the freedom of America and Europe. 10/10 would recommend.
at times the narrator is not the best too machine gun like delivery, but overall the story is remarkable. author doesn't get in the way of the story. great arc much more to it than I anticipated.
My grandfather served in the Pacific theater during World War II, that never had any idea as to the severity of the treatment of American prisoners of war. Frankly, I did not know that human beings have the capacity for evil that is described in this book.
What a great tribute to a great man of honor to our country and believer of true human faith. This book is very well written and descriptions of his sufferings, greatness and forgiveness as well as the sufferings and feelings of his loved ones are greatly felt on this book. I cried not just once but many times on his sufferings and his lost and elated on the triumph of his freedom and forgiveness of the men who have tortured and robbed him of his life for many years. The narrator is very good and has captured Louis life with feelings. What a great book, I would wish for this book to be recommended to Highschool students.
