No fictional suspense thriller could compare with the true story of the snowballing of accidents, mechanical failure, and near catastrophes that occurred on the Russian space station Mir in 1997 while American astronauts Jerry Linenger and, later, Michael Foale were aboard. Bryan Burrough uses flight transcripts and post-crisis interviews with the Russian and American principals to assemble this cliff-hanger. Brian Murray's rich British voice is perfect for the narrative and good as several Russian characters. His American accents are not as convincing. It doesn't matter a bit. It's an excellent performance of a spellbinding text. This is not an audiobook for short listening sessions--once the story gets rolling, it can be hard to turn the tape off!
