This book was a fast-paced, highly engaging account of a WWII veteran. I listened to this book after seeing the movie. It provided a lot more context and interesting details that made me appreciate the movie even more.
Louis Zamparini thank you so much for your service! You and all the gentleman of World War 1 & 2, we couldn't ask for better service men to honor our country. Word can't say enough! Americans appreciate your story and what you have endured and done for us thank you!!!!!
As a future Air Force officer, Louis Zamperini's story is an interesting on to anyone who served in the military. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good read.

I loved this book. The characters were well developed and really came alive. Lots of personality, lots of history, vivid word pictures. The redemption story was moving, the horrors of war, and of mankind one to another were sometimes troubling. Something never to forget. The narration was very good.
Terrific true story that proved the capability of human endurance. Inspiring in many ways. The narration was wonderful and it was difficult to stop listening at times. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
The author of the book did an incredible job of drawing you into the story of a great man during a very difficult time period.
The actual voice that I listened to was outstanding!! He told the story well, and you could sense emotion and clarity of meaning as he read.
This book, this life, this amazing recount of a man's will to survive was nothing short of mind-blowing. I never thought I would be so fascinated and inspired by a war story. It is so well written that it should be required reading in schools. Once you begin reading, it will be impossible to stop.
