I listened to this while training for a half marathon and it kept me interest and wanting to run so I could figure out what was going to happen. There was a lot of details as to the horrors of war and a great testament to the love of God in recovery.
Everyone should read this book and share it with everyone they know. The details are amazing, and emotionally painful at times. Laura and Edward paint a vivid picture of what these real men went through for protecting America.

Everything about this audible book was excellent and it was difficult to put it down.
Having not seen the movie I was intrigued by the constantly evolving story and couldn't believe that this was non-fiction. The life of Louie is truly remarkable. The story is well told and addictive. This book will not disappoint.
I love reading history, Isabel & Ferdinand, Columbus, or Mary Queen of Scots - fascinating, rich lives woven into a tension filled narrative
I think not - because it is a 'heavy' story until Louis comes to know Jesus. He had an arduous experience, and its not one I would want to revisit very often.
When Louis stands in front of The Bird, and takes the beatings over and over and over again. Of course, this is not a representation of Jesus, Louis was not even a believer yet. And yet, it is a visual and emotional account of a man standing and receiving blows and beatings that he did not deserve. A profound visual of the Cross.
When Louis is reconnected to his family - I could see his little mother beaming with delight that her little boy was home.
It is a very sobering reminder of mans' blindness to his personal sin before surrendering to truth. It is a visceral reminder of the truth of the unredeemed, untouched heart.
I loved the book. It was just difficult to read, yet I was on edge, wanting to read and finish it.
Unbroken is one of the most compelling audio books I have listened to. As the daughter of a WWll veteran who suffered from PTSD long before this trauma-based affliction had a name, I was deeply moved by the depth and heart wrenching truth of Laura Hillenbrand's novel read with such clarity by Edward Herrmann.
