On being made a full length movie before even reading t his novel, i knew i had to really delve into this book quickly and completely. It's really good although i found it to be a little boring at times and just couldn't wait to get on with it! Pretty good book, but not the best thing I've ever read. It'll bass.

I went to see the movie "Unbroken". Very good movie. More graphic than I expected for a PG-13 rating but Angelina Jolie does a great job of portraying this biography of Louie. It was tragic how his life was and what a good person he still managed to become. The strength he had is unimaginable and the story makes you come away with a sense of strength that everyone has inside of them if they keep positive.
