Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Wow. I hadn't realized how little I knew about the experience of Pacific POWs in WWII. The story is haunting, horrifying, and remarkable; Louis Zamperini was an amazing man! Hillenbrand's writing style doesn't appeal to me, so it was a slog to get through, but the story will stay with me for a long time.
I can't imagine going to see the movie. The mental images are powerful and disturbing enough without the visual ones added in. Wow. How can people be so deliberately cruel to each other?
