I enjoy all genres and am always looking for a good thriller or non-fiction listen.

    Thad Roberts, a fellow in a prestigious NASA program had an idea - a romantic, albeit crazy, idea. He wanted to give his girlfriend the moon. Literally. Thad convinced his girlfriend and another female accomplice, both NASA interns, to break into an impregnable laboratory at NASA - past security checkpoints, an electronically locked door with cipher security codes, and camera-lined hallways - and help him steal the most precious objects in the world: the moon rocks. But what does one do with an item so valuable that it’s illegal even to own?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Sex on the Moon to be better than the print version?

    Yes, the planning of and the execution of the heist was exciting to listen to. It was like being there in real time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sex on the Moon?

    My heart was really thumping on the night they went after the moon rocks.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Casey Affleck?

    Yes, if the story was this good.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Fly Me To The Moon would definitely have to be in the soundtrack.


    Any additional comments?

    Intriguing behind the scene peek at Johnson Space Center.

    On May 13, 1945, 24 American servicemen and WACs boarded a transport plane for a sightseeing trip over “Shangri-La,” a beautiful and mysterious valley deep within the jungle-covered mountains of Dutch New Guinea. Unlike the peaceful Tibetan monks of James Hilton’s best-selling novel Lost Horizon, this Shangri-La was home to spear-carrying tribesmen, warriors rumored to be cannibals. But the pleasure tour became an unforgettable battle for survival when the plane crashed. Miraculously, three passengers pulled through.

    If you could sum up Lost in Shangri-La in three words, what would they be?

    A great find!


    What other book might you compare Lost in Shangri-La to and why?

    WWII historical non-fiction similar to "Unbroken".


    What about Mitchell Zuckoff’s performance did you like?

    Author's performance was beautifully told and the detailed accounting was believable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the kind of book I love to encounter. True and absorbing.
