    Everyone should read this book. The story is absolutely riveting from beginning to end. I have greater appreciation for the men and women who served in the military during WWII.

    Unbroken is the story of Louis Zamperini. I had never heard the name before. A dear friend of mine loaned me the book to read.

    I am a fast reader but this book has taken me a while to finish. Yes, it is a long book but that is not why it has taken me some time to finish. I could only read a chapter a night because of the intense pain and suffering described in this book. I do not tell you this to deter you from reading it. I believe every American should read this book. It is the biography of a hero of our country.

    Louis Zamperini first became famous as a runner. Since I used to do long distance running myself, I was interested in this aspect of the story as well. Because he was living during a time of war in the 1940s he served in our military. This is his story of an unimagineable life as a POW in Japan. The suffering he endured was beyond what anyone should endure. Yet, somehow he survived_and is in fact still living today!

    What an amazing story this man has_yes, it is a story of pain and suffering_but more than that it is a story of strength and hope and victory.

    For WWII buffs, history lovers, runners, and patriots_this is one of those books that you must read. For those going through a time of suffering, agony, pain, sorrow_this is one of those books that will resonate. I am going to purchase my own copy because the one I read is borrowed.

    Ending my book review portion of this post here_but going on to say that with the suffering the families in Connecticut are dealing with right now I am assured more than ever that there is only one answer to how to deal with suffering. The answer is found in Psalm 34:18

    The Lord is near to the brokenhearted; He saves those crushed in spirit.

    And here in Isaiah 53:5

    But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds.
