This book started out with a scene when Louie and Phil were on the raft surrounded by sharks draw the attention. It set the stage for what was to come in the rest of the book. After that it moved on to Louie's childhood and about when he got into track and field. That drew my attention because I am in track and it interests me. Then the author moved into parts about when Louie went into the military and it talked about when he was captured and held in Japanese prison camps. It used vivid details of the antagonists and about how Louie was beaten by the guards. It used violence as a main way of keeping interest. I liked to hear about all of the things Louie went through and his bad experiences. I hope to hear more about Louie's life after the war and if he gets back into track and field. I also want to know more about when Louie gets old. That would be interesting because I know the main character a lot. I want to see what happens with the rest of his life and how being a POW affects the rest of his life.
