's review

really liked it
bookshelves: non-fiction, audio

I read quite a bit of non-fiction, but I haven't read much space history before -- so the book was very interesting, and I learned a lot. This was a very long audio book with lots and lots of details. The chapters were so long that they exceeded the length of the audible chapter files. The book was presented mostly chronologically, but with each new astronaut introduced often a biography from birth to death would be given. I had a difficult time figuring out why some astronauts were given so much time and others so little. The book could have been improved by a bit more organization, as it seemed to flow, almost stream of consciousness, from the beginning to the end.

The narrator did a good job and it was an easy listen.

I received this audiobook free for an honest review.
