Description

An all-new recording of the landmark number one best seller!

In April 1970, during the glory days of the Apollo space program, NASA sent Navy Captain Jim Lovell and two other astronauts on America's fifth mission to the moon. Only 55 hours into the flight of Apollo 13, disaster struck: a mysterious explosion rocked the ship, and soon its oxygen and power began draining away. Written with all the color and drama of the best fiction, Apollo 13 (previously published as Lost Moon) tells the full story of the moon shot that almost ended in catastrophe. Minutes after the explosion, the three astronauts are forced to abandon the main ship for the lunar module, a tiny craft designed to keep two men alive for just two days. As the hours tick away, the narrative shifts from the crippled spacecraft to Mission Control, from engineers searching desperately for a way to fix the ship to Lovell's wife and children praying for his safe return. The entire nation watches as one crisis after another is met and overcome. By the time the ship splashes down in the Pacific, we understand why the heroic effort to rescue Lovell and his crew is considered by many to be NASA's finest hour 

Decades after the launch of the mission, Jim Lovell and coauthor Jeffrey Kluger offer an incisive look at America's waxing and waning love affair with space exploration during the past three decades, culminating only recently when the Apollo 13 spacecraft itself, long consigned to an aviation museum outside Paris, was at last returned to its rightful home in the United States. The story of Apollo 13 is a timeless tribute to the enduring American spirit and sparkling individual heroism.

Must listen for space history fans

This book doesn’t drag around, it gets right to the point of the story of 13 and of course little bit of 8.

Great work Jim!

I'm an Apollo nerd that has read every book and watched every documentary I could get my hands on. Many times things get a little repetitive because essentially they are all about the same thing.

Your book provided a deep insight into everything about Apollo 13, far more than any other book or documentary. Just when you think you know what happened, hearing it on your own words has made this a beautiful experience for me to listen to. I'm sorry for what you 3 went through but thank you for it as NASA and all of its space programs and astronauts are what makes me proud to be an American.

Again, fantastic book and this story from a living legend is something I'll be revisiting again soon.

One of the Best Apollo Books

Read this twice when it was still called Lost Moon, well before the movie. It makes the space program so human, and Lovell has a genuine, compelling perspective that few people possess. The science involved with space travel is presented clearly, and while the focus is on the three astronauts, many dozens of technicians share the billing as heroes. The Fred Sanders narration is outstanding.

Better than Science fiction!

While the movie telling the story of Apollo 13 was very good, as always the book is better. So much more detailed and informative. Science fiction can't compare to true life drama and narrowly averted tragedy.

Best version yet!!!!

Lots of insights and small details that I’d never read before. I’ve read a lot of what is out there and so far, this is my favorite version of the story of Apollo 13. Well written, and the narration is good enough for me. Some might say the narrator sounds a bit robotic and times but I’m not as picky. I really really enjoyed every part of this

Great story but a terrible narrator

The story itself is exactly as I had hoped. Unfortunately, the narration is wooden, almost mechanical. There is no emotion in the voice. He literally just sounds like he is reading something for the first time and just pausing at every comma and period. I let my husband hear some of it in the car and we joked that I could've just as easily had it read to me by Alexa and it would've sounded the same. It's too bad because the topic of the book itself is very interesting but the performance had me yawning throughout.
