From 1969 to 1972, a dozen Americans walked on the moon, and this audiobook not only relives that incredible era but also offers a look into the broader space race narrative.

While some listeners appreciate the insights into the era of space exploration and the inclusion of actual recordings, others find the fictional elements distracting and the narrator’s pronunciation of “NASA” (which is often mentioned) frustrating.
