Almost impossible to believe someone could undergo such heinous cruelty, and come back alive. Just as fascinating was the post-war struggle to rebuild his life,and his extraordinary gift to the world following his path to Christ. This should be a must read for high school students, but I fear because it deals with Christian renewal, it will never be offered. Actually, my most memorabe moment was when he sat with his brother, Pete, during Pete's last moments. What a tribute to two loving brothers.
Amazing story of survival, redemption and healing power of Christ!
Thank you to Ms Hillenbrand for bring this story to the world.
If you've only seen the movie unbroken get this book now and read the rest of the story. The background to the rest of the story is just amazing the movie does no justice.
The action never stops. Can't stop listening.
Liked all characters
When he returned to the Island
Can't wait for the movie.
I really enjoyed listening to this audio book. I learned things about World War II that I never knew and the POW's stories are incredible. I always respect and appreciate soldiers and veterans but this book raised my appreciation of these hero's 10 fold! The narrator was good if at times a little dry but he still a decent reader.
Captivating, heart-wrenching, and remarkable. What a life and what a story! You won't be disappointed with this one! Anyone who loves history or who had family members who served will enjoy this book.
The tragic and heroic story of war, family, human subjugation, the depths of human depravity and the miracle of redemption.
I heard this was a great book, and it was even better. Laura Hillenbrand is a gifted storyteller and does right by the incredible, inspiring story of Louis Zamperini.
I loved the story. Couldn't stop listening to it and I finished it in about a day and a half, but the narrator almost ruined it for me. He would constantly mispronounce words and seemed bored out of his mind and wouldn't give the other characters voices. I highly recommend this book but be warned, the narrator was just plain awful.
