I would definitely recommend this to any person of any age. This was a moving story that illustrated an entire life of an amazing man very well. I felt myself rolling with ups and downs of this beautifully told story. Unbroken shows the awesome comeback of a man who needed redemption and found it. This book impacted me on many levels. This should definitely go on your must read list!

Eli Frieden lives in the most perfect town in the world: Serenity, New Mexico. In this idyllic place, every lawn is perfectly manicured, and everyone has a pool and a tree house. Honesty and integrity are valued above all else. The 30 kids who live there never lie--they know it's a short leap from that to the awful problems of other, less fortunate places. Then one day Eli bikes to the edge of the city limits, and something so crazy and unexpected happens, it changes everything.

I LOVE this book. It's a cliffhanger at every turn and I couldn't stop listening to it. I will be moving right on to the sequel, which will probably better. This book will surprise you at every turn!

Guy Montag is a fireman. In his world, where television rules and literature is on the brink of extinction, firemen start fires rather than put them out. His job is to destroy the most illegal of commodities, the printed book, along with the houses in which they are hidden. Montag never questions the destruction and ruin his actions produce, returning each day to his bland life and wife, Mildred, who spends all day with her television "family."

This series is amazing. This is definitely better than the Harry Potter books and the only drawback is that the next book isn't coming out until 2017! This is a great read.
