This was a fabulously well-written book about the horrendous circumstances WWII POWs suffered in Japan. Besides being a wonderful story about the indomitable nature of man it is also a stark reminder of our capacity for cruelty and depravity. May we all learn from the mistakes of our fellow beings & vow to never allow such acts in the future.
The unbelievable, captivating story was enough alone for a perfect read. However, narrator of this book was perfect. Thank you.
So well narrated. The story is so much better than the movie because of the DETAILS. It kept me hooked the entire time.
There are few books that can change your views of life and this was one of them. You will find it hard to put this book down. Zap's story is a national treasure and I wish I could have had the chance to meet him.
Wow! What a story. Everything about this story is amazing. I loved every word and found myself hoping, praying, cheering and crying for these men. Everyone should read this book.
Being able to "read" while driving. I loved that it is broken out by chapters so I could find my place in my book when I was back home.
