Yes, I never understood why my grandfather was so hateful of the Japanese. After reading this book I now understand. I had no idea our POWs were treated so badly. It was a moving story with lots' of lessons to be learned.
It moved fast...the fact that this was true story kept me engaged. I had no idea how my grandfather generation grew up and lived. It was a history lesson! And, hopefully we learn so that history doesn't repeat!
Yes, I turned it on every chance I got...even closing my office door and listening while I worked. Rarely do I like distractions while I work. This book was the one exception!
Make your kids read it so they know evil when they see it!
On so many levels this is an amazing story that grips you from the first paragraph. Love the fast moving and descriptive writing style ...will definitely read something else by this author. The narrator was also excellent.
This was an amazing story of survival, but the narration was beyond superb. I really felt like I was a part of the story, and never really became aware of the narration. You could hear the story, and the narrators voice did not overpower it or draw attention to him. Great Job.
Unbroken, was a long winding tale of a former Olympic runner. The story details the hardships that were faced throughout his time in the U.S. military fighting during ww2 and beyond. It is well written and great to listen to. The story has a well written end and its basis in history makes it more fun to see how it ends!
It is difficult to comprehend how a man can survive the trials and tribulations described in this book. It's an amazing story, both saddening and uplifting.
I would recommend this story to all! This is a great rendition of remarkable lives as it tells you about the pre and post lives of many POWs and Louis
