February 2012 Read of the Month Update

I am still working on my February 2012 Read of the Month.  As of this morning I have completed 300 pages out of 474 of Laura Hillenbrand's Unbroken.  I love the book, but I do not think I will be able to finish by the end of the month.  February has just been a busy month at home and work.  Believe me my slow pace is not because I am not enjoying the book. 

This tale of Louis Zamperini's survival after being shot down during World War II has been amazing.  I have read some complaints about the long, drawn out introduction (pre-plane crash chapters).  I would agree if it were not for my own track and field background.  Most of the early chapters present background information of Zamperini (including his Olympic track and field career).  I enjoyed most of the early chapters because of my track and field background.  I will agree that the build-up to the crash adds quite a bit of length to the book.  I hope to have a complete review put together by next weekend.
