Inspiring, eye-opening, and fascinating!
The writing was one of my favorite aspects of this book. The way the story was told was top-notch. The actual story was inspirational and also informative. I was hooked in the first five minutes and crying and laughing for Louis in the first hour. Absolutely wonderful- a life-changing read.
He was perfect! Emotional when necessary but not overly so. He did a wonderful job.
Absolutely! I did my best!!
Everyone should read this; everything from the statistics to the actual story were things that no one on earth should go without hearing.
Absolutely. Despite hating the narrator's character for the first 3/4 of the book, the author still found a way to make even the most unlovable protagonist at least human. By the end of the book, I was cheering for him (surprisingly enough). I cried, I laughed, I sat in my car slack-jawed in horror; this book had me all over the emotional spectrum, and I loved every (okay, almost every) minute of it.
I've never read a book like this. Truly unique as it's from a Muslim's point of view on the fall of Afghanistan.
I love Hassan's "For you, a thousand times over" line. Will never forget that incredible phrase.
Absolutely. This is a truly inspiring story of three plane crash survivors and the brave men who came to rescue them, but it also tells of the deep relationships that can be formed from soul to soul despite no visible common ground to stand on. This was truly a beautiful read.
That it was TRUE! The author gives such detailed and accurate information about every aspect of the story that the reader feels completely confident in the reliability of the telling. I also loved the focus on the relationships formed between the natives and military men/women. The natives' perspectives on things was refreshing and eye-opening. Very well-researched.
He was perfect. Too often the author will try to do his/her own audio recording and fail miserably, but Mr. Zuckoff's performance is top notch. Impeccably done and wouldn't change a thing.
YES! Couldn't put it down!!
