A phenomenal book that tells the incredible true story of Louis Zamperini. From his early days as a delinquent, to his days as an Olympic athlete, to dark days of surviving at sea and enduring in P.O.W. camps run by sadistic guards, it's a story that is incredible and very well written.
Laura Hillenbrand writes with the same amazing style that she did in Seabiscuit. She has a knack for telling these stories in fresh compelling ways.
