Happy Monday. If such a thing is possible.
While awake this morning at 3am I continued reading Unbroken, the biography of Louis Zamperini: an Olympian, a castaway adrift at sea after his plane crashes into the Pacific, and then as a POW in Japan during WWII. The experiences described in the book, specifically his tale of survival following brutal treatment by his captors, makes for a gripping, painful tale. The movie got moderately awful reviews on Rotten Tomatoes (I haven’t seen it) but the book is worth your time.
