This is an incredible story of resilience and redemption and the strength of the human spirit. I highly recommend it. Very intense at parts. Not suitable for young readers.
Love to read, knit,cook...love God
All of it...I totally forgot my world and was launched into hers... I could see the war in my imagination like I was right there...now that's writing!
From start to finish, you feel as if your heart is literally bleeding for the people in this book, good and bad.
ANY unbelievable story of life and survival.
Absolutely wonderful performance, truly fitting to the story.
EVERY part!??? If this book doesnt move you, then youre a lifeless corpse.
Just when you think it cant possible get any tougher on the real-life characters, the situation just keeps getting worse and worse. A true testament to how much the human mind & body can endure through the amazing will to live.
I do, I have, I will! Just an interesting, compelling story told with an authentic voice.
the strength of the human spirit.....Where does it come from? The ability to survive the hopeless circumstance again and again.
I've wondered, since listening, why there is so much strength available to survive the direst of events, but - afterwards - self-destructive despair can defeat the survivor? It seems such a paradox, but happens again and again with today's veterans.
Absolutely! This book made me laugh and cry. I never thought I would enjoy a book about a war but I was wrong. I really liked this book because it kept me engaged the whole time. I found myself wanting to listen all the time. I have heard "stories" about POWs and their time in POW camps. This account was horrific but opened my eyes to another culture. Worth the listen!
I have no comparison.
Not that I'm aware of.
Yes. Something near & dear to my heart happened near the end of the book. I especially enjoyed hearing his struggle and victory.
This book made me laugh and cry. At times I listened in horror & disbelief. To think that someone, anyone could survive such an ordeal amazes me. One more example of God's awesome power!
So dramatic. At times it's hard to listen to the severity of the abuse, but it is worth it. It's history. The "resilience" and "redemption" part are so true. An amazing life.
To recount the events of the war.
His recovery after listening to Billy GrahamSt
Strength will be your Survivial
Really enjoyed this performance. Loved the story - had me from the first chapter and continued throughout.
Yes, very compelling story, well written.
Lost at sea.
Read as a documentary. Very factual and unemotional which left the reader to reach his own conclusions.
Yes! It is a stirring, true story that is told so well that the listener can visualize every word!
