The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 36: Unbroken

Laura Hillenbrand’s Unbroken was a perfect book for a day when I was sick at home; I listened to it on audiobook while I recuperated. What a powerful story detailing the life and service of Olympian distance runner Louis “Louie” Zamperini. Very graphic descriptions of the trials and torture he suffered while lost at sea for over a month and years as a POW in WWII Japan, hard to hear but important to remember so such atrocities are never repeated. The story was compelling enough that I spent some time after finishing the book scanning the web for more information on Louie’s life and hit upon several very good documentaries and interviews with the man himself; I may have to rent the movie!
