    This book should be in every home in America. It is classic literature. I find the young author utterly amazing, in that she never met Louie until the book was published because of her invalid condition. Not only it is this book an amazing biography of Louie Zamparini, an Olympic track star, and a World War II war hero of several Purple Hearts, but it also gives us a much needed historical record of our devastating war in the Pacific with the devious, persistent Japanese. It is a book, not only of our survival and patriotism as a nation during this Greater Generation, but one that ultimately demonstrates how one can come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior in spite of all of the atrocities, and forgive those who so brutally attacked him. The last lesson is the most important victory of all----one's eternal salvation.

    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.
