    One thought on “Unbroken

    1. mike ainsworth

      The content of the book is extremely rich, but the style in which it is written creates no warmth or empathy towards the characters. It felt more like a long list of described events, which failed to draw me in. The incredibly dramatic events failed to come over as such in the narrative. I am, however, looking forward to the film, as I hope the protagonists will be portrayed with more feeling.

      Forget about the movie ! I still don't know how Angelina (the director) could do such a mess with this extraordinary powerful story !!! It will linger still a long time after the last page has been turned.

      This book gave me a new insight into the lives of people who served in the war. Louis story is so incredible, so deeply touching and inspiring. It shows the power of the human spirit and what we are truly capable, even in our darkest hours. I cannot say how much I enjoyed reading this book enough. This story will stay with me forever, it's moved to the top of my favorite books list

    4. Client d'Amazon

      It's like living the same moment as the movie, I don't care about the american what he used to live but as human being it was unacceptable

      What a wonderful biography. It is really well written and flows well unlike some biographies. I would definitely recommend it.

      la vie d'un personnage exceptionnelle, tellement saisissante et bien racontée, qu'une fois on ouvre ce livre, on ne peut plus le déposer.

      Conforme à mon attente. Excellent état. Livraison rapide et sans mauvaise surprise. Plaisir de lire en perspective. Mes grands-parents se sont trouvés dans le même camp de prisonniers, d'où mon intérêt pour ce livre.
