I can't believe how affected I was by this book. Many times I found myself laughing but many more times found me in tears. This is one of the most incredible stories I have ever heard, the fact that it's all true makes it even more incredible.
Being Australian I hadn't ever heard of Louis Zamperini as I grew up learning about Australian war heroes, particularly from Gallipoli. This story & the telling of it has well & truly touched my heart.
The narrator Edward Hermann made it even better. Thank you Laura Hillenbrand for bringing this story into my life
Just finished listening while our walking my dog, and tears were literally running down my face. What a remarkable story, so beautifully told. I'm enormously grateful to both subject and author for sharing Louis' story with me. I hope that when I need strength and courage in the future, I remember to think back to Louis' story for inspiration.
This was a gripping story of personal tragedy and the will to overcome it. Laura Hillenbrand did an amazing job with the biography, and Edward Herrmann is unmatched (IMHO) as the best narrator I've heard yet. His telling of the story puts you right there, and brings the events to life.
Nothing. Exceptional performance.
Must be either reading or listening to a book. Might need a 12 step program for my love of a good story
it was refreshing to listen to a true story that was so well written. I well read more books by this author.
The pace and delivery of the narrator were superb and greatly added to the enjoyment of this book.
The Zamp (Main character) his story is a testament to the strength and resolve that a human can have in the face of extreme hardship.
There were scenes earlier in the book talking about the flaws of the B-24 which I found humorous if a bit unsettling.
Indominable spirit personified.
