Hillenbrand is an excellent writer, but, in addition, she's a real expert on horse-racing. I trust her there.
I recommend Unbroken
. And yet, much of what's in Unbroken
is just one person's memory of a time long ago. Much is undoubtedly true, but some of it is literally unbelievable. See: Zamperiniís War
Yes I've got to read Seabiscuit
. I've read nothing but good reviews. I agree with you, Hillenbrand is indeed an excellent writer. Unbroken was very well written, there was never a dull moment.
