    The story " Hotel on The Corner of Bitter and Sweet" reflects on the treatment of Japanese in America."Unbroken" allows the reader to understand why the Japanese were not trusted.

    The main character, Louis Zamperini has STRONG Character One can only admire his presistence and determination to encounter many degrading acts and was able to forgive his offenders.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No,I like to reflect on portions of a story. Therefore,I listened to it in several sessions.


    Any additional comments?

    " Unbroken" is a very interesting and emotional true story. I learned many facts and became aware of historial events that took place in this country and the world.
