From Luiy's childhood to war time, then sad struggle after the war to the peace he found letting God have his horrors. Then to the enjoyment of continuous work with struggling boys and speaking engagements he lived so many chapters of a lifetime that many people never get to.
It is such a testament to what God can do to your life if you let him in.
After hundreds of audiobook, this is one of the best audio book, from beginning right to the end. It makes me hate, laugh, forgive and inspired.
A rear insight into the war on Japan.
Reality of War, Resiliency of Man, and his Ability to forgive
I can only imagine the emotions racing throughZamparini's head as he wasted away in that ocean after the crash, not knowing if or when they would be rescued or by who... How they tried to logcally analize their actions or inactions... Knowing each had their own set of dire consecuences.
I have not, but zealously looking for more.
I honestly would have a difficult time seeing the book as a movie (That is why I chose to read the book before seeing the movie) but I can see numerous players and never ending twists. I suppose if push came to shove, one of the ideas that would be considered by me is a movie centered around sylvia, as teh adhesive that binds all together? Pete? maybe? Just don't know Even Watanabeis a candidate.
No, Thank you.
It is a great story. In places I just had to skip ahead a bit because it was so relentlessly comprehensive, and I just couldn't take any more detailed descriptions of horror and suffering. It ended a bit abruptly. The redemption and recovery must have had more to it. (Maybe I fell asleep during the last chapter?) It was epiphany - altar call - pour out the booze - and we're done. But a great story about a great man and well worth listening to. The narration never got into the way; I'm sorry that we have lost Mr. Herrmann, a terrific reader.
