A througherly enjoyable thought provoking book., 14 April 2006
A througherly enjoyable thought provoking book. I'm much enjoying it & not really wanting it to end, thankfully I've got a quarter of it still to go. The book traces the authors mental & physical journey in tracking down the twelve lucky ones who got to walk on the moon. He gets to meet quite a few associated others on the way and with them all he ponders some pretty fundamental personal philosphical questions of the kind that we all consider from time to time - all this is done in the context of those trips to the moon, the spirit of the Sixties, and looking back on it all from today. If like me you think that going to the moon was the most 21st Century thing to happen in the 20th Century - beating the Internet into second place by the way - and you like a bit of pondering on it all then this is most definitely the next book for you to read.
