I'm having a major book hangover with this one, to my surprise. A friend recommended it to me, telling me how good it was, so I looked up what it was about and was extremely skeptical. To my delight I was wrong, this story is SO GOOD! During the early pages I was laughing, and when reading the final few I was tearing. This true story follows Olympic runner Louis Zamperini from childhood, to Olympic competition, to war. He get's lost at see and becomes a Pacific POW, once free his nightmare follows him and he becomes lost in it. The immense amount of hope and resilience is inspiring. All that the body can be put through is astounding. How God uses the dark parts of life and shines his light through even those darkest places is beautiful. I cannot highly recommend that you read this book NOW.
