This book is an amazing story of pain, suffering, courage and ultimately Grace. It is beautifully written, meticulously researched, and brilliantly performed. I was hooked right from the beginning and it didn't let me go all the way to the very end. I highly recommend this book it is a book that every single human being should read.
This book exceeded all my expectations and then some. it's wonderfully written, wonderfully read and full of so many hard hitting facts. Made me tear up on numerous occasions and introduced me to the hero that is Louis Zamperini. If you read one book this year make it this one.
This is an amazing book, incredibly written about a great, epic and inspiring life that was lived by Louie. the movie barely scratched the surface. My grandfather was a jap POW and went through the Bataan Death March and eventually shipped to Japan to work in a coal mine as a slave for Mitsubishi. what they endured was so far from inhumane, it isn't even fathomable. And for the special attention and them trying to turn him into a propaganda tool and to never break and to come home and overcome his demons is a true testament to the American and human spirit.
Unbroken is a true story.
A reminder of the last world war. World war 2.
Humane resilience. Physical & mental. And the power of forgiveness .
Well written by Laura Hillenbrand, wonderfully narrated .
A must-read for every American, Unbroken reveals the sacrifices that generations of the past have made for our nation. It's deeply moving and one of the best novels I've read.
This superbly written story was an honest, but harsh account of Louie Zamperini's life. I had the honor to hear Louis in 2010 at an Easter Church Service in Sacramento CA. What an awesome and humble man. This book is recommended to any reader from middle school through adult. You will be riveted to this story!
