A 23-hour journey to the moon and back needs a narrator who is easy on the ears, and Bronson Pinchot’s voice has a wonderful timbre. Andrew Chaikin’s chronicle of the Apollo missions, first published in 1994, is primarily a human story based on in-depth interviews with 23 of the astronauts who went to the moon. Pinchot’s narration is a good match with the warmth of Chaikin’s prose, though his cadences at the ends of paragraphs often seem awkward. He also has a tendency to use melodramatic emphasis whenever he reads a large number. Nonetheless, this audio version deserves to attract a younger generation to the definitive account of one of the greatest technological achievements of all time.
