Unbroken

I'll try to keep this from becoming a book report, but this book is just too good not to mention.

Unbroken, by Lauren Hillenbrand is one of the best books I've read in a long time. Scott, who reads a bit less than I do, read it in record time and really enjoyed it. Generally, I'm not one for non-fiction, but this book was impossible to set down.



A quick synapses:
The book is a true story about Louie Zamperini, a runner, who was projected to run break the first 4-minute mile in the Berlin Olympics. World War II happened and Louie joined the Air Force. During a flight Louie's plan crashes into the Pacific Ocean. The book goes on to tell about Louie's journey from the crash and his time spent in Japanese POW camps. The strength and courage behind this man is simply astonishing.
