    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?

    Story
    Would you listen to Sex on the Moon again? Why?

    I would listen to it again, as long as it was with another narrator. The Kindle text synthesizer has a more engaging voice than the narrators...


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Casey Affleck?

    Nick Sullivan or somone with a similar voice would have made a much better match, but basically anyone but the current narrator would be bettter.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The story in itself is quite full of moments all through, but sure the moments for the handover are of course the most intense.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a shame such an interesting story gets destroyed by such a boring narration, but nonetheless, very much worth a read. If you manage to overlook the narration and concentrate on the story you're in for a treat.
