Let's Talk Books

Laura Hillenbrand’s "Unbroken: a World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption"

“A second book by the author of Seabiscuit (2001) would get noticed, even if it weren't the enthralling and often grim story of Louie Zamperini. An Olympic runner during the 1930s, he flew B-24s during WWII. Taken prisoner by the Japanese, he endured a captivity harsh even by Japanese standards and was a physical and mental wreck at the end of the war. He was saved by the influence of Billy Graham, who inspired him to turn his life around, and afterward devoted himself to evangelical speeches and founding boys' camps...this book has an impossible-to-put-down quality that one commonly associates with good thrillers.” - Booklist Reviews
