Unbroken is coming out in theaters on Christmas Day. And I am going to see this film with my dad, like I did Monument's Men last February. Unbroken is the story of a WWII soldier, an Olympian, and his life. I'm not telling you anything you can't learn from watching the trailer or reading the book jacket when I say he spent time in a POW camp. I will say that it was a VERY difficult book to read. I had to put it down and take a break several times because it was hard to read. What wasn't hard to read about was his faith. Although I finished this book after the next three books that I will tell you about, I wanted to tell you about it first since I started it first.
It is a powerful, well-written story about a man of great faith that stumbles and falls and picks himself up again and again. I love biographies and history, so the fact that I did love this book isn't really a surprise. It isn't an easy book to read, but it is worth it. And sometimes when people know that about a book, that it pays off in the end, it helps them through the tough parts.
