I literally would turn this audiobook on when I awoke & listen until I fell asleep, late into the night. Truly a purchase worth the costs. I'm now taking my 3 teenage sons through it. Highly recommended.
Read this book years ago. Listening once again. Great message and reminder of sacrifice of others and what can be overcome!
I saw the movie first, by chance then was recommended the book by a book club. It was an unbelievably moving experience listening to the endeavors of this incredible man. His story is an inspiration and a lesson to us all about the true depths of ones character and just how far we are capable of going, even in the darkest of times.
this story gets difficult at times. torture scenes are lengthy and frequent. point was established with one or two less inclusions.
Amazing example of what the human mind can endure and conquer! The trials of life make us who we are. It seems like as I grow older I unfortunately see less Louie's in this world!
If you read only one book about heroes make it this book. This is one of the most incredible stories I ever read. It is very well written and read.
I recommend this book to all who like true survival stories.
Long book, but I couldn't stop listening to this riveting saga. If you are into war stories, this has to be on your must read list. If you are interested in a testimony of human endurance and perseverance, this is your book too.
