Pressestimmen

“Extraordinarily moving . . . a powerfully drawn survival epic.”The Wall Street Journal
 
“[A] one-in-a-billion story . . . designed to wrench from self-respecting critics all the blurby adjectives we normally try to avoid: It is amazing, unforgettable, gripping, harrowing, chilling, and inspiring.”—New York
 
“Staggering . . . mesmerizing . . . Hillenbrand’s writing is so ferociously cinematic, the events she describes so incredible, you don’t dare take your eyes off the page.”People

“A meticulous, soaring and beautifully written account of an extraordinary life.”—The Washington Post
 
“Ambitious and powerful . . . a startling narrative and an inspirational book.”—The New York Times Book Review
 
“Marvelous . . . Unbroken is wonderful twice over, for the tale it tells and for the way it’s told. . . . It manages maximum velocity with no loss of subtlety.”Newsweek
 
“Moving and, yes, inspirational . . . [Laura] Hillenbrand’s unforgettable book . . . deserve[s] pride of place alongside the best works of literature that chart the complications and the hard-won triumphs of so-called ordinary Americans and their extraordinary time.”—Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air
 
“Hillenbrand . . . tells [this] story with cool elegance but at a thrilling sprinter’s pace.”Time
 
Unbroken is too much book to hope for: a hellride of a story in the grip of the one writer who can handle it. . . . When it comes to courage, charisma, and impossible adventure, few will ever match ‘the boy terror of Torrance,’ and few but the author of Seabiscuit could tell his tale with such humanity and dexterity. Hillenbrand has given us a new national treasure.”—Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run
 
“Riveting . . . an exceptional portrait . . . So haunting and so beautifully written, those who fall under its spell will never again feel the same way about World War II and one of its previously unsung heroes.”—The Columbus Dispatch
 
“Magnificent . . . incredible . . . [Hillenbrand] has crafted another masterful blend of sports, history and overcoming terrific odds; this is biography taken to the nth degree, a chronicle of a remarkable life lived through extraordinary times.”—The Dallas Morning News
 
“No other author of narrative nonfiction chooses her subjects with greater discrimination or renders them with more discipline and commitment. If storytelling were an Olympic event, [Hillenbrand would] medal for sure.”Salon

“A celebration of gargantuan fortitude . . . full of unforgettable characters, multi-hanky moments and wild turns . . . Hillenbrand is a muscular, dynamic storyteller.”The New York Times

“[A] masterfully told true story . . . nothing less than a marvel.”Washingtonian

“Zamperini’s story is certainly one of the most remarkable survival tales ever recorded. What happened after that is equally remarkable.”—Graydon Carter, Vanity Fair

“Irresistible . . . Hillenbrand demonstrates a dazzling ability—one Seabiscuit only hinted at—to make the tale leap off the page.”Elle

“A tale of triumph and redemption . . . astonishingly detailed.”O: The Oprah Magazine

“An astonishing testament to the superhuman power of tenacity.”Entertainment Weekly

“Intense . . . You better hold onto the reins.”The Boston Globe

“Incredible . . . Zamperini’s life is one of courage, heroism, humility and unflagging endurance.”St. Louis Post Dispatch

“Hillenbrand has once again brought to life the true story of a forgotten hero, and reminded us how lucky we are to have her, one of our best writers of narrative history. You don’t have to be a sports fan or a war-history buff to devour this book—you just have to love great storytelling.”—Rebecca Skloot, author of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

5 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von S. Backhaus am 23. Mai 2011
Format: Taschenbuch
The book is a very heart rendering read. Louie Zamperini's dreams are chattered through agonizing torture which he is forced to endure through his capture by the Japanese during WWII. He does not get rescued by any drummed up parade of soldiers. Not when he is stranded in the middle of the Pacific, not when he is taken prisoner by the Japanese and not while he is a POW. Why one human race can be so extreme cruel is beyond comprehension. Yet the book does not radiate hate or racism. The story does not provoke pity towards the protagonist or any other character of the book. I questioned myself: why am I reading this? It is because I had to know if he/they survive. I had to find out if they are taken out of the struggle to live. It was soothing to realize families really can stick together and believe. Throughout the book Louie knew and trusted his faith in his family and his family had faith in Louie.

Knowing that this novel is true was mind -boggling. If it was fiction it would seem that the author was exaggerating a story. It would probably be deemed that the protagonist should be named John Wayne and the whole episode was dreamed up in Hollywood. But exactly the opposite is true. The protagonist Louie Zamperini was not anything like Wayne he was like you and me (a mensch) and the setting was nothing close to Hollywood. I kept asking myself how much one human being can be made to suffer. I haven't felt so touched by a war novel since Irwin Shaw's "The Young Lions"; and that was fiction.

`Unbroken' by Laura Hillenbrand brings an amazing story based on real events that describes the fate of a man who was a member of the Olympic team of his country, and a few years later ended up as a prisoner in World War II camp.

Louis Zamperini was a soldier who found himself back in 1943 in an Army Air Forces bomber that crashed into the Pacific Ocean. Beside two colleagues he was the only survivor of this accident, and although what he went through was hard, the hardest thing was there waiting in front of him.

His youth was not ideal, it cannot be said that he was an example with his behavior, which often exceeded the boundaries and even came to the edge of the law - he stole, broke into the houses, brawled and escaped from his hometown in order to ride with train. However, in some ways it helped him to find out that he was extremely talented in sports, especially running which enabled him to quickly progresses and finally comes to what every athlete is considering the highest honor - representing his country in the Olympics, in his case one that took place in Berlin 1936.

And when the Second World War started, Louis like many other young men across America and around the world replaced his freedom with the military life in the struggle against the Axis powers. Survival in the ocean today with top-quality equipment would be a challenge, and we can only imagine how Louis felt in the ocean, far away from anything, almost without hope, hungry and thirsty, exhausted and surrounded by sharks to which he was supposed to become food.

Strongly recommend. A must read book. An incredible story of WWll POWs how they managed to survive in rubber boat in the middle of Pacific ocean for over a month without food and water. Then to be captured by the Japanese. Sent to POWs camps in Japan. It was a shocking story how they survived the conditions and the kind of treatment in the camps. It's the WWll's untold story of the survival of POWs.

Very interesting and amazing biography. It makes you realize how little you had to go through compared to the victims of the second world war.

Louis Zamperini ist ein junger talentierter Leichtathlet, der 1936 bei den Olympischen Spielen in Berlin teilnimmt. Noch zu jung, um in die große Weltspitze vorzudringen, will er dies 1940 erreichen. Doch dann kommt der 2.WK dazwischen und Zamperini geht zur amerikanischen Luftwaffe und wird mit Kameraden über dem Pazifik abgeschossen. Es beginnt eine jahrelange Odyssee...
Ein sachliches, packendes und emotionales Buch zugleich, welches eine wahre Geschichte verarbeitet und einen Teil des 2.WK beleuchtet, der Europäern eher unbekannt sein dürfte. Fünf Sterne von mir, da es ein Pageturner ist. Gleichzeitig bin ich auf die bevorstehende (9/13) Verfilmung gespannt, denn das Buch hat alles für einen Oscar-Kandidaten und Blockbuster...
