I've read quite a few "survival story" books in my time, but I think this one outdoes them all in terms of what the hero had to survive. Wow. Just WOW.

I loved that the hero was a runner, and that the author spent some time on his running accomplishments. That was a nice connection.

By the way, don't go looking for information about this story elsewhere (Wikipedia, etc.) if you're going to read the book. It was all the more suspenseful because I didn't know a thing about Louis Zamperini before I read Unbroken. At one point in the story, you think things are moving toward a definitive resolution, but no: there's still half the book to go.
