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.
Amazing story of our greatest generation. The resilience these men had is incredible. Absolutely heartbreaking to learn the atrocities they suffered through at the hands of the Japanese.
Always wonderful to read true stories without the Hollywood take--very intriguing and gripping. Thought the audio presentation was better than reading the book!
