Neil brings fun to the history of Pluto. As a fan of Pluto who was originally very upset about the demotion, I was angry with Neil. But after this book, I forgive you Neil.
Originally the length of this book was daunting but after 17 hours, I found myself wanting more. This book brings these historical figures to life and gives a sense of what London was like through the war years. I really connected with the characters and its amazing what these men did, stood for, and how easily it all could have been different. While I have been a fan of Edward R Murrow for a while, this gave a new perspective and introduced me to equally intriguing figures of history, often overlooked.
I never found the periodic table all that interesting, but this book has changed my mind. I couldn't stop myself from pausing this book frequently to tell people about the interesting story or fact I had just learned. Great book!
Much like her real life personality, this book is a quirky journey. She makes the oddest of any vacations seem like fun. Though I assume this book would only interest those with an interest in history and an appreciation of her sense of humor. The guest voices also add to the fun by bringing the characters to life in a truly silly way. Jon Stewart as Garfield was especially interesting. Would definitely recommend this book.
