All I can say is I loved this story. Was a little hard listening at times but please muscle through it... it's so worth it when you come to the last 3rd of the book. Totally not expecting the twist.
Historically enlightening, this book brought to life the many atrocities, struggles, triumphs, and paradigms of life in the early to mid 20th century, and even war itself. I'm grateful to have experienced this wonderfully written and engaging book, and many thanks and praise be given to it's author.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The descriptions were vivid and it brought you into their struggle. Some of it was hard to read due to its graphic content but the style of narrating suited the book wonderfully. I learned a lot about the war and I am so glad our book club chose this book.
Yes! Such a captivating story that goes to show how insignificant our everyday problems are compared to that of POW from WWII.
No other book comes close.

An Unimaginable Journey of a WWII Bombadier
Greatest book I've listened to yet. Such an amazing story of Louis Zamparini who goes from Olympic track star to a POW in Japan's most brutal camps during WWII. This story will make you feel guilty for cursing the traffic on your way to work this morning, for complaining about the missing cream in your coffee you got at Tim Horton's and for all those little things that we allow to disrupt our day. The sub-title of the book is spot on as the words survival, resilience and redemption sum up Louis' journey flawlessly. Listen. To. This. Book. You won't regret it.
