it was amazing

I resisted reading this for so long, because I knew it would be difficult to read and imagine. But I couldn't NOT read it, having heard so many kudos.

What I didn't know was how engrossing and engaging was the writing, recalling daily life details that make you breathe the world Hillenbrand re-creates. She is an astonishing chronicler and storyteller, so when you apply these stakes to a Real Life Hero, taking him from birth through many near-death experiences and then, finally, to liberation in every sense... well, I was glad I stayed with it.
