My wife bought this for me as a present. The facts and details clearly supplied by Lovell are amazing and so informative, shame the over the top phrasing and words used by Kluger spoil the actual reading/story experience. However, that aside, if you have any interest in this subject, I'd still recommend it, just be prepared for silly, ridiculous, unnecessary writing in between the mesmerising detail!

An excellently written, superbly readable and very entertaining novel about the Apollo 13 crisis.

Together with 'The Right Stuff' and 'A Man on the Moon' this ranks among the finest books about the space race I know.

A great accopaniment for those who have enjoyed the film. More background and technical information than the movie can give along with all the recognisable characters. A grippng read.

Well written and you really get a feel that is was written for lay people to understand a lot of the technicalities. If you liked the film you'll like the book

The book is obviously much better than the film (which is excellent) although a little technical in places for the layman.

As one very pleased with the movie, and the topic of space in general, I found this book a really good read, and can only complement the authors. They did an outstanding job. This book contains all the details you ever wanted to know about this historical flight.
