    Review quote
    'The pages almost turn themselves. His tale is remarkable and his resilience inspiring.' Ben Macintyre 'An instant classic.' Mail on Sunday 'Hillenbrand must be congratulated for chiselling out such an uplifting story...This is tremendous stuff.' Daily Telegraph 'A riveting read.' Spectator 'Hillenbrand's storytelling is gripping.' Financial Times '"Unbroken" is an extraordinarily compelling read, a match for any thriller...a remarkable book.' Evening Standard '"Unbroken" is gripping in an almost cinematic way. To have written something so ambitious and powerful under such trying circumstances is an act of courage even a Louis Zamperini would admire.' Scotsman More gripping than fiction' Sunday Telegraph
