Scott Lange's earnest narration of this audiobook about the first manned mission to circle the moon emphasizes the place it and the men who carried it out have taken in history. Lange's forthright presentation serves Sandler's goal in making clear the importance of the Apollo 8 mission by presenting it in context with the Gemini and Mercury missions, as well as giving an explanation of the 1960s Space Race. The detailed account of the mission itself incorporates many quotes from the astronauts, their wives, and personalities of the day. Listeners will be greatly moved by Lange's emotional descriptions of Earthrise and the crew's Christmas Day reading. E.J.F © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: NOVEMBER 2018]
