I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. The reader was excellent. The story was absolutely unforgettable. This is a book that will change your perspectives. Highly recommend!
Overall it was a very good book. As it ended however I felt as I was more bitter then most POWs after the war. The book engulfs you putting you in their shoes where you sadly develop a severe disliking for their captors.
gave me a whole new opinion of both pow's and the Japanese. i would have hunted watanabe to the end of the earth!
Jesus Christ loves and sustains and forgives! Thank you to my friend Brad who encouraged me to read this tale that I thought was filled with trauma but as I read I saw Jesus carrying Louis throughout his life!
Notwithstanding the details of the life long tribulations of a true American hero, this book should be a required read for middle school U.S. Citizens and Immigrants to grasp the meaning of American patriotism and the patience and power of God.
I knew this book would be good, but it exceeded my expectations. The story is superb, and narration spot on. I seldom binge on audiobooks, but I just had to finish this one (it took two days). Hope you enjoy it just as much!
