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



Laura Hillenbrand wrote Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption. A tale of unbelievable endurance, hardship and heroism. A real page turner, extremely well written and readable.

Laura Hillenbrand wrote this book with the long (500 pages) extremely detailed, meticulously researched and extremely moving story of a Hero. And yes, the caps on "hero" was intentional. She was compelled to tell the story because she "found fascinating people living a story that was improbable, breathtaking and ultimately more satisfying than any story [she'd] ever come across

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

Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption by Laura Hillenbrand is likely to be the book of the year for several reasons. It is beautifully written and beautifully structured. It has a compelling and inspirational subject. It is filled to the brim with fascinating facts (Which parts of a shark are edible? What was the mortality rate in Japanese prison camps versus that in Italian/German ones? What is it like to fly a B-24?). It is the product of exhaustive research. It combines the advantages and attractiveness of biography with the strengths and strategies of suspense fiction.

It's fun.
