Overview

Nel maggio del 1943, un bombardiere americano precipita nel mezzo dell'Oceano Pacifico: dell'equipaggio si salvano soltanto tre membri, uno dei quali è Louis Zamperini, figlio di immigrati italiani. Comincia così, con un minuscolo canotto alla deriva mitragliato dagli aerei giapponesi, l'incredibile storia di un eroe del Novecento: dopo aver percorso 3200 chilometri in mare, sbarcato su un'isola giapponese, per due anni passerà da un campo di prigionia all'altro, incontrando sadici aguzzini e misurandosi ogni giorno con la possibilità di essere ucciso, fino alla resa del Giappone e alla liberazione. Questa, per Zamperini, è solo l'ennesima prova di una vita avventurosa: giovanissimo delinquente di strada, aveva trovato nell'atletica leggera una via d'uscita, diventando campione di mezzofondo e partecipando con onore alle Olimpiadi di Berlino del 1936. Reclutato dall'Aviazione nel 1940, prima di precipitare nel Pacifico era sopravvissuto a durissimi combattimenti alle Hawaii. Conclusa la guerra, anche il rientro in patria non è semplice: gli incubi lo tormentano, portandolo a rifugiarsi nell'alcol. È il matrimonio con una ragazza di buona famiglia, bella e intelligente, insieme alla riscoperta della fede, a riportarlo alla vita. L'incredibile storia di Louis Zamperini viene raccontata da Laura Hillenbrand come un romanzo epico, un viaggio nelle possibilità estreme, fisiche e spirituali, dell'essere umano.

Because there is no mention of this book being written in LATINO when i PAID for it, i am unable to review it. Furthermore I will check and see if this was listed like this on purpose. IT WONT HAPPEN AGAIN.

This book is the best book. But as you can see on the cover it has some words from a diffrent lanaguage. But just go buy the other one, maybe email NOOK company and see if you can get your money back.
