    Virtually all Americans above a certain age hold strong opinions about Douglas MacArthur. They either worship him or despise him. Now, in this superb book, one of our most outstanding writers, after a meticulous three-year examination of the record, presents his startling insights about the man. The narrative is gripping, because the general's life was fascinating. It is moving, because he was a man of vision. It ends, finally, in tragedy, because his character, though majestic, was tragically flawed.

    Larry says: "Great material. Well read."

    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!"

    What disappointed you about Unbroken?

    I am a retired naval officer and a student of WW 2 history. This story even if taken as pure fiction is so full of gross exaggerations that it is offensive to anyone with even a rudimentary understanding of science and or history. It is simply the piling on of an endless string of impossible events in child like way. I only finished the book to see to what extent the mindless author would delve. I cannot believe Random House would publish such trash,


    Would you ever listen to anything by Laura Hillenbrand again?

    NEVER!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Burning the final manuscript


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Dissappointment is spending money on such an unprofessional offering


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth any more of my time
