Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

Audio book review: Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption

By: Laura Hillenbrand

Genre: nonfiction

Pages: 496

Published: 2010

Audio book: 11 CD’s (14 hours)

Read: January

2 out of 5 stars

With the reviews I have seen, I expected to enjoy this story way more than I did.  Although I know I have never been much into history I do continue to try to engage myself.  The easiest way for me to do this is through nonfiction novels.  However, I enjoyed hearing about the character building of Louis Zamperini up to the war and the deterioration and consecutive rebuild of the significant role model that Louis Zamperini deserved to be.  By acknowledging the fact that I am, unfortunately, not very interesting in history, I can completely understand how readers who are could become completely engrossed in Zamerini’s story.  I highly recommend this nonfiction story of Louis Zamperini to all history buffs or those who are interested in World War II.
