Excellent read, fast moving and many brings a different perspective to how war affects both sides and those caught in the middle.

Review by: Crash Froelich on Dec. 20, 2009 :
Unbreakable is a rocket-propelled rollercoaster ride that takes two young people in love and changes them forever in the crucible of the Bosnian conflict. Rosa Miretti, a courageous war correspondent fallen ill to the ravages of dementia, and Pete Rorke, a freelance reporter and ex-Marine who dares to stick his nose into war zones in search of the truth; are not only collaborators and colleagues, but also lovers engaged to be wed. Be warned: Every notion you’ve ever had about this war will be challenged, no matter what side you’re on. Just when one thinks the narrative has committed to a particular political point of view, the tables turn in the most poignant and disturbing ways to challenge preconceptions of good and evil in this ugliest of conflicts. The reader will be left thrilled and staggered by the depth of the story and the horrors that men are willing to inflict upon one another. There have been precious few books that deal with the realities of armed conflict like Unbreakable. This is humanity reduced to our most basic impulses – and our loftiest. You won’t be disappointed. You can’t be disappointed.

It’s impossible to recommend this book highly enough.

Review by: Elizabeth Hull on Dec. 13, 2009 :
Unbreakable is an intense, action packed, character-driven story, set both in the U.S.A and war ravaged Bosnia. This war brings all sorts of nastiness out of the woodwork for those fighting and conditioned, by past atrocities, to view inhuman treatment of enemies acceptable as just retribution of how that enemy treated them. Into this hellhole go Rosa and Pete, both journalists covering the conflict. While aware they are in a danger zone, neither are prepared when they are drawn into the carnage as helpless victims and separated, not knowing if the other lived or not. To survive, they have to hold on to their love for each other and their hope that friends will come to their rescue, but will this be in time?

This story is an edge of the seat, nail biting read. Once started, it is impossible to put down. Highly recommended.
