A book is like a garden carried in your pocket. --Chinese proverb
YES, the story is amazing, but the prose is brilliant. Ms. Hillenbrand uses a straightforward narrative without testing the reader's knowledge of the English language. Each sentence is plain, clear and understandable, which to me only shows that it was labored on rigorously. The account is so descriptive one can almost feel themselves floating in the shark infest waters for a 1,000 miles with Zamperini and his friends.
I can't wait to read it...I'm hoping to start in January. Thanks for your comment.
