    Seabiscuit was one of the most electrifying and popular attractions in sports history and the single biggest newsmaker in the world in 1938, receiving more coverage than FDR, Hitler, or Mussolini. But his success was a surprise to the racing establishment, which had written off the crooked-legged racehorse with the sad tail.

    K. Knutsson says: "Best book ever!"
    "Why did I wait so long to read/listen to this?"

    Amazing story. Great writing. Wonderful narrator. Loved every single minute of it.

    Unbroken because it is also by Hillenbrand and an amazing true story.

    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!"
    "I read it and then I listened to it."

    Would you listen to Unbroken again? Why?

    It is THAT good. I read this when it came out and when I heard it was being made into a movie I bought the audio book for a long drive. Loved it as much as the first go around.


    What other book might you compare Unbroken to and why?

    Seabiscuit


    Which character – as performed by Edward Herrmann – was your favorite?

    Edward Herman is a great actor and I have also liked his voice. He does a great job on this one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    All of the above. Nail biter!
