Unbroken, a great book according to my husband!

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and RedemptionUnbroken, by Laura Hillenbrand

I haven't read it yet, but my husband just finished this book and loved it. You can read his review here.


  1. 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.

  2. I can't wait to read it...I'm hoping to start in January. Thanks for your comment.
