A brilliant story and testament to man's ability to endure great challenges. Although it made me aware of the brutality of the Japanese during WW2, I appreciated the way it didn't vilify the Japanese, and highlights cultural and communication barriers. Let's hope we never have to endure such brutality on such a scale again. Would recommend.
Everything about the book and the narrator was excellent I believe that all audiobooks should strive for this kind of production.
Finished it in 3 days. It was simply vivid. I felt like I was right there with him. I can relate greatly with struggling with regrets and resentments in life only to be freed by Christ's Grace and Truth. I identify with the realization that God was with me even when I was rejecting him. This story reiterates that God has a path for us all and it is filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows but they are intended for us to grow closer to Him and rely on His plan for our lives. This isn't a story about how "Unbreakable" Louis was but how Awesome God is.
yes....it is inspiring lessons to be learned and applied to daily life
everything...the history was amazing
Billy Graham involvement
I know now why my father did not want me to watch war movies. There was so much unheard history reviled. What is amazing now is how we regard the Japanese today. They are our friends. I think we have reconciled, and this book completes it.
Amazing story. Historical war facts, horrors of war, but the amazing power of the human spirit and ultimate redemption by God. The power of God to heal our diseases such as alcoholism and our souls and give us the power to forgive and love others. This will be a treasured book I will remember often. A classic and must read.
My father was a WWII veteran and didn't talk much about the war. He was at Pearl Harbor when it was attached and fell in love with the lifestyle there. I found it a compelling story, especially because I have lived on Hawaii Island my adult life in a majority Japanese American community with a history I never fully understood.
