Yes, I found there were so many facts about WWII planes I would like to listen too again. The story was riveting.
I like the story about a rambunctious boy, who turned into a man that was able to use what others saw as delinquency to his advantage to survive.
I like Edward Hermann's voice. Soothing but made me want to listen.
I cried many times in the middle and end and I laughed a few times. My gut felt sick for the inhumanity of men and sadness for the women in war.
In the tradition of great story telling this story walks. The journey of this man's life is mind boggling. The grace with which the story is told is breathtaking. A fitting way to spend the Memorial Day weekend.
I can do ALL things through Christ, Who strengthens me.
Such a heart wrenching, heartwarming story of a man and how man's resilience end dedication to God can bring you through anything.
A story of grit, determination and mercy. This is a story you can listen to and lose yourself in.
And believe that there is mercy for you no matter what.
I listened to this story on the edge of my seat whilst recovering from major surgery. Trust me, and the others who have reviewed the audible book, it's a read, or a listen worth your time.
Heads up: The shark stories are suspenseful. And there are incredible stories of sadness and evil.
Best to you as you contemplate this life led.
I have always been a WWII history buff and I hold the Greatest Generation in the absolute highest regard. This story has only strengthened my feelings towards the men and womeen who brought this country through that national nightmare victorious over those who wished to destroy our country. I had never heard the life story of Mr. Zamperini before now, and I am so grateful and humbled by his service, sacrifice, and perseverence. He was and will forever be a national treasure!!!
This story of resilience, preserving, and love brought tears to my eyes several times. All the problems I've ever had seen so insignificant.
