Just downloaded it but need to finish Clancy's latest, "Dead or Alive" before starting in.

Unbroken is the life story of Olympic runner Louie Zamerini, who after the Olympics gets drafted into WWII and subsequently shot down over the Pacific. He spends three years as a POW in Japan.

Gets great reviews. Just curious if anyone here has read it yet, and if so, what they thought of it.

I read Unbroken during the Holidays. Decent book. After being shot down, Louie and two crew members survive 43 days at sea drifting in a life raft. They finally near land and are picked up by a Japanese patrol boat. The portion of the book that details his imprisonment, while interesting and harrowing, gets to be somewhat repetitive. His life after returning from the Pacific will also keep your attention. All in all, a good read.
