This book is agreat story of the life of a POW during captivity and lif after his rescue. The descripition of the POW camps is shocking and the story of survival stunning.
I will listen to this again after I digest everything from the first time.... amazing story
The story of resilience of the man (Louis Zamperini) will inspire me for the rest of my life
Edward Herrmann is the perfect voice for this book
The book is an emotional rollercoaster
I have listened to a couple hundred audio books over the years and this is the only one that compelled me to write a review.... Listen to the book and you will not be disappointed
I loved Edward Herrmann's crisp delivery of the book.
The perseverence of the POWs against unspeakable cruelty. I had no idea of the conditions they were exposed to. Their heroism is so humbling.
Louie--who could not love his character?
The endurance of the human spirit.
From the beginning to the end, this story had me hooked. It was an amazing story of survival and strength.
No. Too much brutality. An important history to know about, but once is enough.
Louie, who is really the only fully developed character.
Strong and sensitive.
Number one so far.
Girl with the Dragon Tatoo is a moderate second.
Clear and provoking. Brought you into the story.
More than one. The events just kept coming without boredom, loss of interest or credibility.
An excellent story. The best I've read/listened to in years. It's about a life and the events that the life experienced. Just a good story.

This biography takes the reader through the life of a very unique individual. Louis Zamperini is a hero in three different ways an athlete, inspiration for men and finally a man who can forgive others. Without one of these virtues the other two don’t exist. We all should have such strong resolve in our lives. Laura you once again did a wonderful job of telling a great story.
This book was an inspiration. Amazing story of overcoming the odds. I would highly recommend this book.
Seeing the light
Beautifully written and narrated. Just when you think "what could possibly happen next?" something does. Zamperini's story is one that everyone should listen to.
