This is one of the best most incredible books I have ever read! How could this one man endure so much?! I am in awe. The book was very well written, the narrator was perfect for the story. I highly recommend this book!
This book was wonderful -- a gripping tale based on real characters and events. I really felt connected to Louie and could almost feel his pain.
The movie was good, but the book was (as is so often the case) much better. I really liked the additional understanding of him before the war and the troubles he faced after the war. The insights into events in post-war Japan was also very interesting.
I'd highly recommend for anyone interested in WWII, anyone interested in survival, and anyone just interested in a good story. My son just went through AF survival school and I recommended it to him as a great story of survival.
Fantastic listen. This is my first book that I have listened to trough audible. The quality was great and the story was captivating. If not for work and the little social life I have I would have listened to it straight through. I will be listening to this again very soon. I can't get every all the trials and tribulations these men went through. It's stories like this one that give me that much more pride to be part of the few within the greatest military in the world. The United States military.
