suspenseful, gripping, informing
The time they spent on the raft
He was able to bring you in and place you next to Luie
His ability to stay loyal to his country through all that he was put through.
Listening while I run.
This is a great book and covers the life of a great man (really, many great men). I won't recount the book other than to say that the salvation of Louis is one of the most compelling stories of recognizing the infinite Creator and personal Lord. Trust the reviews and use a credit, you will not be disappointed.
The story is unforgettable as Louie Zamparini faces insurmountable odds resilience redemption and forgiveness. I couldnt look at a plate of food the same way again thinking about our POW'S
Methodical, powerful authoritative
The encounter with the Great White Shark that tail slapped the castaways. Also his utter rejection of Billy Graham's Christ Centered message then his conversion and then forgiveness of the Monster "the Bird".
A Few skips in the sound track?? possibly my phone......
Loved the book. I was amazed to discover that it was a true story.
The main character.
Kept me on the edge of my seat. My kind of book.
Absolutely. I have, many times. It is a story of the power of the Human spirit, redemption and dignity. It is also a story of the power of evil and its threat to all of us.
I really enjoyed this book. Since I finished it, I've been telling everyone about it, urging those who have not read it to pick it up. It is such an inspiring story, and I am amazed that I had never heard the details of this before. I really believe that this should be required reading in every high school. Students can learn so much, at an important stage in their lives, about the power of the spirit, about redemption and about perseverance.
Not my typical read, great story and read well. Tops of this type of book.
Forgiveness, amazing he found it after everything he went through. I like that it can provide perspetive in our lives. When you think you have it bad or something is going wrong think of Louis and guess what? Its really not that bad.
Louis Zamperini is my Hero. I have a new deeper respect for all military people. No words can describe my gratitude so I will just say from the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!!!!!!
Yes. It's an amazing, true story.
The change from vengeance to forgiveness.
subtle voice changes for different characters
The narrator sounds like the man telling the story. A story that is so riveting it will leave you short of breath and begging for more.
The unbelievable tale of human survival against all odds.
The protagonist, Louis Zamperini, is a hallowed, if not forgotten, hero of world war II. His story of courage, survival, redemption and repentance is bound to make any listen stop in awe of his plight. Truly, one of the greatest stories of WWII.
It made me stop listening, and reconsider my relationship with God. It made me reconsider my status as a man. It made me reconsider my status as a patriot, a soldier and a citizen. No written word about the greatest war, or the greatest generation, has effected me so much.
