    Story
    (9652)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Disappointed"

    Story
    What did you like best about Unbroken? What did you like least?

    The development of a young man into a runner was fascinating. The adventures
    of his wartime experience was gripping but his return home and failure to find
    peace was not well written and the search for his Japanese torturer was too long, read far too quickly so that the last third of the book was uneven and did not match the interest
    of the earlier chapters.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Laura Hillenbrand? Why or why not?

    No. Could be the reader was not good enough but the story was not cohesive enough.


    What three words best describe Edward Herrmann’s performance?

    Uneven. too rapid


    Could you see Unbroken being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes. Michael Crowe could do it.
