Can you tell by the TWENTY days it took me to read this that I could not convince myself to finish it? And I mean that in the best possible way because I just didn’t want to leave Neil behind. Every chapter I read brought me closer to the end of his story, and I didn’t want it. I wanted to live in Neil’s world for as long as possible, so I spent almost all month reading bits and pieces of this. And honestly, I think this was even better because of that. I got to live with Neil for about three weeks, and it was delightful. He is delightful. If you’re a space fan or want to learn more about the Apollo astronauts, this is a damn good read.
