Thought I had purchased Laura Hillenbrand's book "Unbroken"-wrong! What I received was a Quicklet version written by Brett Davidson. This thing makes Cliff notes read like a novel-if you're looking for a 15 minute summary of a great book here you are. Totally useless. I had never heard of "Quicklet" or the seller-now I know to stay clear.

I returned this item. I didn't know what a "Quicklet" was and thought I was getting the paperback version of this book. We found out after we got it that a "Quicklet" is a version of Cliff's Notes. I needed the whole book and didn't have enough time to order it again, so I had to buy one at the local Barnes and Noble.

This is a great summary of the full length book. I read the original book and loved it, and then read this later to refresh my memory. I never want to forget this book, because it opened my eyes to what military people went through during World War II, and reminds us of the sacrifice of all service men and women.

Having gone through high school and college by doing the minimal amount of work required (with whatever I perceived to be the most efficient methods), I'm all for the idea of shortening, synthesizing, and summarizing popular books. SO MANY more people would read them if they were more easily accessible. That's why I was eager to check this out - especially because (and no offense intended for Laura Hillenbrand) I had no intention of reading the full 490+ pages.

The Quicklet is well-written, snappy, and covers what seem to be the most important components of the original. Where it lags behind CliffNotes is in its thematic analysis and character analysis, which I felt could have been a bit deeper and more thoroughly thought through.

This quicklet helped me understand this non-fiction novel. Unbroken is a long read, and I am in my late 80s, so this helped me to understgand and remember what transpired. Thank you!

I joined a book club and used this for review since I had previously read the book. It's a good synopsis of the books offerings.

Well, hate is an awful word, but the quicklet was definitely not what I expected. I thought I was ordering the book itself, which is what I still want to purchase. I have never needed to send anything back to Amazon, so I haven't done this yet. Please send me advise as to the best way to return this purchase.
Thank you for letting me send you my feedback and I hope that you will read it.
