Deep, engrossing, heart-wrenching, fascinating, motivating account of a person and time like never told before.
Loved the book. It was a great story to listen to. Puts life in perspective.
Absolutely fantastic. This story is so powerful. An excellent combination of joy, sadness and horror. But an awesome account of a man's struggle with everything that his life threw at him. What a man.

What made the experience of listening to Unbroken the most enjoyable?
Beautifully written with an expert hand that has no need to use graphic violent descriptions to show the true horror.
What did you like best about this story?
It is so, so very human. No one in this book, given the circumstances they were in EVER set out to be a Hero. Their sole goal was to protect each other and survive.
What about Edward Herrmann’s performance did you like?
Brilliant! Unfortunately may narrators spoil a book for some listeners, Edward is not one of them.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I just listened in quite awe to the life story of one man, who was blessed to be loved and befriended by so many exceptional people, whom to which we should not only show thanks but be truly inspired and grateful.
Any additional comments?
I WISH,WISH,WISH that this,and all the other truly humanising accounts of war were part of the curriculum in the teaching of history. It is only with these true visualisations that any lessons may been learnt.

I Couldn't stop listening! Truely an amazing read!
Amazing sufferings and amazing forgiveness.
Unbroken, the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini, is powerful and moving. Loui's life, his resilience, strength, character, and ultimately his salvation and forgiveness of his captors show God's faithfulness and intervention in the hardest of situations. Captivatingly written by Laura Hillenbrand, I felt like I was living the story, it transported me. Edward Herrmann narrates it with so much life, feeling, and emotion, you almost feel what Louis was feeling. Highly recommended, I've been telling everyone about this book.
