    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.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "For lovers of history, biography, and drama"

    If you could sum up Unbroken in three words, what would they be?

    Inspiring, captivating, breathtaking


    What other book might you compare Unbroken to and why?

    I'd compare it to Nelson Mandela's memoir, Long Walk to Freedom. Both of these men overcame adverse circumstances and mistreatment in captivity to become inspiring leaders.


    What does Edward Herrmann bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Edward Hermmann is a fabulous professional. If he read an audible version of the phone book, I'd want to hear it. His reading has a very natural and unforced quality and yet it's completely captivating. This isn't the first book I've listened to him read and it is the same consistent high quality with everything I've heard or seen from him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A life lived with enthusiasm and honor
