If you enjoy reading non-fiction that reads like fiction then this is the book for you.  It is the very inspiring story of Louis Zamperini.  Read it and then see the movie.  You won't regret it!

Growing up, my brother read all of Stephen King's books but I am a scaredy cat and was too afraid to try any of his books but my brother convinced me to give The Stand a try.  Wow! I'm so glad he did.  This is less horror and more apocalyptic fiction.  I got attached to the characters and ended up cherishing this book.  I've read it more than once.  If you are afriad to try Stephen King, please give this one a chance.
