It took me a while, but I finally got a chance to read this book. I was impressed how Hillenbrand’s book read like a fiction book even though it was non-fiction. I was captivated with this book and I think my nurses could tell as I would rush right back to the book as soon as my testing was over. The chapters about his time in the prison camp did drag a bit for me. I was amazed how he dealt with his POW days when getting back home and how he had an interest in returning back to Japan.
I appreciate learning about a different front of World War II. It is clear that Hillenbrand’s seven years of research paid off in helping the reader experience the trials and joys that Louis did. This book is definitely one that you should not miss out on.
