I looked at this book for about a month or so before buying it. I'm not always into war history, but I figured I would give this one a try; I'm so glad I did. Unbroken has to be one of the greatest stories I've ever read. ( )
Wow. _Unbroken_ tells a powerful story of the life of one World War II bombardier. The story was eye-opening in so many ways. It was difficult to listen to at times, but incredibly hopeful in the end.
If you’ve only watched the movie his story is not told in all it’s glory. Probably because he finds his peace through God. The redemption of his life is equally as important as the courage and perseverance he and others took to survive.
Not only an extraordinary story but also an excellent audio book. The reader is actor Edward Hermann; I will look for more books read by him. About the story, many of the images from it will always be with me. It's hard to believe it's true, it's so fantastic. A truly wonderful (and at times horrific) tale. Hillenbrand weaves a tapestry of words in her book. Definitely recommend.
Very much enjoyed most of the book I found I was pretty well engaged throughout most of the book but once the war was over and I listened for several more hours about the aftermath - particularly the Billy Graham portions - I found my interest nearly non-existent.
Truly what these men went through was harrowing and it would have been impossible for any of them to have even a glimmer of a peaceful recovery.
The writing was good, as one would expect from this author, but there were many things that were repeated and, after a while, I felt like the book was overly long.
Overall, I'm happy I read it and my interest in all things WWII has been rekindled.
I'd go 3.5

"Anyone who enjoyed Hillenbrand's previous book, Seabiscuit, will know that she has a fine line in compelling narrative. Unbroken is no different: meticulously researched and powerful. The reader, unlike the airmen, would rather the days adrift went on longer. They end, however, in grim style. Zamperini and fellow survivor are in sight of land when they are captured by Japanese forces. The Red Cross, however, is never informed and the two are declared dead."
The ideal way to read “Unbroken” would be with absolutely no knowledge of how Mr. Zamperini’s life unfolded. Ms. Hillenbrand has written her book so breathlessly, and with such tight focus, that she makes it difficult to guess what will happen to him from one moment to the next, let alone how long he was able to survive under extreme duress...So “Unbroken” is a celebration of gargantuan fortitude, that of both Ms. Hillenbrand (whose prose shatters any hint of her debilitating fatigue) and Mr. Zamperini’s. It manages to be as exultant as “Seabiscuit” as it tells a much more harrowing, less heart-warming story.

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--Lt. Louis Zamperini. Captured by the Japanese and driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor.
