Incredible and unbelievable.
The human interest and amazing personal strength.
I find it enjoyable to just relax and listen to him read as I concentrate on the story.
I laughed out loud and became chocked up during some of the serious and unbelievable parts of the story.
I find it amazing that humans can be so cruel to other humans with the thought of improving their own self image. I guess that is what you get when you have a government out of control.
Fascinating, Sad and momorable
Louis, of course.
He brings out the reality of the story.
Yes, It was difficult to put down.
All I wanted do is to stay in the car so I can hear more of the story. It changed me in ways I could never describe. I will never think of my own troubles in the same way nor will I complain as much as I used to because now I know better.
Inspiring, amazing, well written
This book is an amazing tale of courage, will power, and decision making in the most inspirational way.
I am very new to audio book as of last year 2014. I really have been missing out. I travel a lot so it's perfect for me.
Passionate, suspenseful, and dramatic
Louis is obviously my favorite because it is written from his account.
There are points his voice makes it really feel like he's the one that was there. You almost forget he's reading a book to you.
Well someone already has. Called it Unbroken. I have not seen it yet but look forward to it.
You could also call it "The American Spirit" or "The war behind enemy lines"
****Spoiler alert**** Overall great story. The part where he spent 3 years in POW camps drags on. But that being said it is very important that part of the story is told as so many men died there. And it was a long time for someone to endure that.
The horrors of WWII illustrate why our freedom is our mostly costly treasure. Time fades the real truth of the evil that rang in world war and the need for confronting evil to remove its wings, it's ability to prosper. May we never forget the courage and bravery of those who serve our country.
This was an excellent telling of Louie Zamperini's life. What a remarkable life he lead. He was a testimony of overcoming terrible trials and then finding forgiveness through Christ.
I saw the movie before reading (listening) the book. I must say that the book is so much better.
Very heartbreaking story that reminds us how cruel war can be and how strong man can be. Hats off to Louis and all the POWs that suffered. Very well written story and I really enjoyed the narrator.
This book leaves you wondering about the evils mankind is capable of. The narration can be described as "matter of fact" and the "story" like a work of fiction... honestly the reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of the feeling it left behind and the questions I'm still asking myself.
Truth be told, this book is extraordinarily well written and the narration is spot on. A total recommend.
