I could not put this down, I had to go on and on with the story. This is a story everyone should know. What our men had to endure is beyond our grasps. What hell they had to endure is awful.
I have never read a more riveting, Visceral and emotionally investing novel. Amazing book. The historic research is top notch. You feel as if you are riding front seat with a moment in time. Louis's story will never be forgotten.
The audio version of this book was done very well. Louis is a true grit American. If anyone deserves to harbor hate it would have been Louis by the contrary if anybody was able to have peace it is Louis
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.
