Laura Hillenbrand does it again! With her amazing knack for detail she weaves an interesting and historically accurate tale. I felt inspired by Louis' story. Also, the narration was excellent.
This book was my first Audible purchase and I lucked into the best choice possible! Anyone who loves suspense, great detail, vivid imagery, and a hopeful story would love this book. Also a great listen for any history buffs or those who love war stories.
My husband, teenage nephew, and I went on a road trip and no one slept on the 13 hour drive - we wanted to hurry back to the car at stops to find out what would be next.
"Unbroken" is not a light or short read, but it well worth the time. I highly recommend it to all ages (early teens and up).
Gripping from the start and I'm so glad the book goes into so much more detail into this amazing man than the movie. Some of the torture seemed repetitive but exceptionally narrated.
Reading this book for me took a long time. The story was very good and Louie Zamperini is now in my mind. After listening to this I feel as though I know him personally. Although it was very good, I am not much of a nonfiction reader so it was not the best book for me. I also thought that although important, not all of the information before and after his capture was relevant to the book, and dragged on just a bit too long. Overall though, this book is good and I would recommend it. :)
This book is informational, challenging and inspirational. It is a must read for anyone looking for inspiration from the life of an ordinary man living life intentionally.
Absolutely a triumphant story of a harrowing tale of survival against all odds. A must read, gives you pause about your struggles in your life. Makes your struggles seem paltry.
