really liked it

By now most of you have read this book. The story of Louie Zamperini, a one time Olympic runner who found himself shot down during World War II over the Pacific and interred in a Japanese prisoner of war camp for practically the duration of the war. Deprivation, torture and starvation are not my favorite topics, and halfway through the book I asked myself, I'm reading this book, why? But I'm glad I did. After enduring such horrific pain, day after day, it was amazing that anyone could come out of this sane. Many did not. Zamperini himself teetered on the verge of insanity for a long time, only to come out redeemed and "unbroken". Thanks to the author's superb writing, this disturbing book gets a thumbs up and definite recommendation from me.
