The best book I've read all year!

The characters in this book created such a visceral reaction in me that I found myself laughing, crying, and yelling at the monitor as I read it. The story is so rich in detail that I felt like I lived in the sixties right alongside Nick and Tait!! I absolutely loved revisiting the development of NASA and the space program. Astronaut Nick taught me a lot, but then again so did Tait.

Jeremy Pack did a brilliant job incorporating the history of the time period into the story of these two men's relationship. Tait is an idealist who wants to save the conflicted world around him. Times were changing, and he wanted to be at the heart of it. Feels a little familiar to current events, and made their journey all the more special.

Highly recommended.
