KtMac Reviews: Lost in Shangri-La: A True Story of Survival, Adventure, and the Most Incredible Rescue Mission of World War II

The Good: This is a true story about several U.S. service members who were lost in an isolated jungle in the South Pacific during WWII. The story almost reads like a novel because it is so incredible. It's captivating. 

The Bad: Sometimes the author didn't pursue a side story as far as I'd like or I had trouble remembering it was a true story instead of real life and was a little disappointed that not all things turned out the way I would have liked. 

The Verdict: A must read. It's absolutely captivating and appeals to all. WWII history, adventure, exotic locales, beautiful scenery, hints of a romance.
