RM Book Lounge – Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

Laura Hillenbrand is famous for her books detailing triumph over suffering.  She did this with Seabiscuit, now a major motion picture, and repeats this success with Unbroken. The true story  is based on Louis Zamperini, an American Olympic runner and WWII prisoner-of-war, who survived seven weeks on a raft in the Pacific, only to be captured by the Japanese.  Pick this book up for a gripping story about a courageous American!

Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand

“His [Louis Zamperini] is one of the most spectacular odysseys of this or any other war, and “odyssey” is the right word, for with its tempests and furies and monsters, many of them human, Zamperini’s saga is something out of Greek mythology.” – David Margolick, The New York Times

“The author of “Seabiscuit” and “Unbroken” has transmuted her own life struggle into two irresistible stories about athletes gifted with preternatural speed who overcome severe handicaps to achieve victory. Talk about transcending obstacles.”Jane Ciabattari, The LA Times
