Commuting 2 hours a day to and from work allows me the pleasure of listening to many books where I would otherwise not have time to read
A captivating story that had me checking the history books to make sure the end of the war was coming soon so this poor man (Louis Zamperini ) would be saved. This book should certainly be made into a motion picture. Personally, I believe it would be better than "Saving Private Ryan" and "Band of Brothers". It is amazing to me how someones will to survive can endure such hardships. I am not sure I would be able to survive this tale. Best of all, it is a true story!
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in WWII and the human spirit.
I just checked Google: EXCLUSIVE: Universal Pictures has acquired screen rights to Laura Hillenbrand’s bestselling new book Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption.
I CANT WAIT!!!!
You should listen to this book BEFORE the movie comes out!
No, I already listened to it.
The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt and the Fire that Saved America. Both are wonderfully detailed historical pieces with beautifully interwoven personal stories.
Would highly recommend it to military personnel.
Intense emotional amazing
Surviving the days at sea.
Clarity and sincereness
It made me sad and angry at times
What a guy Louis is.
Great Listen! Really makes you take a new look at what our soldiers go through. I would recommend this book to anyone.
This audible was right up there with Sea Biscuit for the best I have ever owned.
Without giving it away, the description "at sea" is not to be missed.
The book is well served by the readers style. His performer enhanced the story to the point that you forgot he was reading it.
Any 14 hour book listened to in two sittings is not to be missed.
Yes, at some point in the future. Would be worthi it to refreash my memory of the details.
Survival at sea.
No extreme, but the conditions he and others faced were incredible, and shocked me.
Read the book. It's an amazing and inspiring story.
This story is so unbelievable, and I really appreciated how even though it shows the dark side of human nature the end has a very uplifting resolution.
I'd recommend this story to anyone. The narration is pleasant, the story is absolutely unbelievable, and the writing is second to none.
I listen to books on my long commute.
No, although well written and an unforgettable story, I would not choose to live through it again. Although I think everyone should know that these tragedies happened.
I don't read books like this often. It was like the Titanic in that you knew what was going to happen but the story was compelling and you had to know the details.
Parts of the book I could not take listening for too long.
Great story, well written, and narrated. Highly recommended even though this is not my typical genre. This story gave me better historical perspective on Japan's deeds in WWII.
By far and away the best !
The research and depth of description.
The reader was terrific. He emoted the different roles extremely well.
I listened in my car and had to pull over twice due to my tears....
Great book. Beautifully narrated. An amazing story of true grit.
I love good history books about WW II, the Civil War, and the Revolutionary War. I like other good books about life and cooking.
Unbroken ranks right at the top of all of the audiobooks I have listened too. This book tells the story of a remarkable man and the men that served with him. For those that think that we were wrong in using "the bomb", they need to read this book. I learned a great deal by listening to it.
I have nothing to compare it too.
They where all good.
The cruelty of the Japanese during World War 2 was far more than I had expected. I expected far more from a race of people that thought that they where the "superior race".
