DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T GIVE IN Lessons from an Extraordinary Life

by | Read by Arthur Morey

Biography & Memoir • 5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

This autobiography by the late--and truly great--Louis Zamperini is ably read by Arthur Morey. Zamperini, whose story is depicted in the recent movie UNBROKEN, had a life that no one would believe if it were fiction: He was an Olympic athlete and a WWII bomber pilot who was shot down and survived in a raft for 47 days in shark-infested waters, and then survived two years of torture and abuse as a P.O.W. of the Japanese. Returning home after the war, he faced more demons before his conversion to Christianity in 1949. In his subsequent life he was a mentor and an inspirational speaker. Morey is a skilled narrator, but this performance lacks the warmth, energy, and vitality that Zamperini had when speaking in public. One wishes that Zamperini had lived long enough to narrate his own book. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2015]
