    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.....

    Story
    Where does Unbroken rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I am an amateur historian, and have read & listened to hundreds of books on wars, soldiering, etc. over the past 20+ years since first being drawn into the subject. Some of the most horrific are the POW stories, and they can turn your stomach. Having read other accounts of Japanese POWs from the war, I was prepared for that part, but what caught me off guard was everything else! Ms. Hillenbrand does a wonderful job of painting the scenes of dispair after the crash. She also makes me feel as though we can see inside Zamperini's soul when describing his post war troubles. This book is a well written uplifting work, and lest I forget, Mr. Herrmann's reading of the piece is fantastic. This is a must for every personal library.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The weave of the tale...wraps you up, pulls you in and holds you close.


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

    Come on, he could read a Microsoft technical manual and make it interesting.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope.
