In 1943, while World War II raged on in the Pacific Theater, Lieutenant Louis Zamperini was the only survivor of a deadly plane crash in the middle of the ocean. Zamperini had a troubled youth, yet honed his athletic skills and made it all the way to the 1934 Olympics in Berlin. However, what lay before him was a physical gauntlet unlike anything he had encountered before: thousands of miles of open ocean, a small raft, and no food or water.

Sept 2016, this was our second listen to this book, and it was just as great as the first time. (about a year ago). Looking forward to watching the movie!......Oct 28 2016, I'm reading the book first before watching the movie, I found I'm retaining more by reading it than just listening. Even though I have listened to the book twice, I am finding it still just as exciting and fascinating on this third journey. Glad there are lots of copies in the library system. Another book and movie along the same lines is the Railway Man by Eric Lomax. Forgiveness, something we all need to give more of, and yet probably one of the most difficult gifts to give!
