Amazing bio

Unbroken is the life story of Louis Zamperini. He was a runner, Olympian, World War II bomber and prisoner of war. In other words, he has an amazing story to tell.

Laura Hillenbrand has uncovered a special story that could have been lost in time; it's a good one to tell as it embodies so many aspects of historical details. It is a journey of epic proportions.

I would have loved to give this book 5 full stars, but I couldn't.

Vulgar language started appearing after 1/3 of the way into the book. More precisely, it is vulgar name-calling. I rather wish the author could have not used the exact names (yet stay true to the facts), and perhaps pulled it off in a more discreet way.

Great book of life before and during World War II. It shows how anyone can come to faith and how faith can sustain one in times of need.
