I have SO much to say about this book. But quite honestly, my hope is that you would just go out and read it so then we can talk about it!!:)
There have been few stories that have captivated and touched my heart as much as this one. A story about a man named Louie who, through all odds, survives World War II and comes back to America, trying to figure out how to move on with his life. It's such a fascinating and gripping read. At times it can be very difficult to get through; what Louie and his friends suffer is almost unthinkable. This story of survival and forgiveness will have you on the edge of your seat (or bed, which is where I read from:)) the whole time.
Hillenbrand's style of writing can be a bit dry at times and there are parts of the book that read more like a textbook than a story. But Hillenbrand allows for Louie's voice to shine through. You become attached to each character and storyline. You wonder what will happen to these men and the people they left behind. Will they survive?
So if you're a history lover like me or just love a great TRUE story of survival, you'll love this book! And of course, I am going to give away a copy! It will have you talking for weeks and I am beyond excited to share it with you. To enter, just leave a comment below and the winner will be announced tomorrow. Happy Reading!
