Wow!

An incredible trip, from the perspective of one astronaut's mind. I actually found myself holding my breath at the end! This story is short in length, but not in intensity! Awesome listening!

Out Of This World

This story fully engaged all my senses. The descriptions of an Astronaut returning to earth are so vivid and powerful that its the closest I've ever been to imagining what it must be like to experience a journey of this magnitude. Ably narrated, with sound effects, by Taff Girdlestone it is the perfect listen for when one wants to escape from the mundane daily routine for half an hour. Suitable for all ages, I think it would be an excellent inspiration for a creative writing class. Received as a free download. This voluntary review is my honest opinion.
