I was so excited to read this one, about the wives of the first US astronauts. The glitz and glamour of a “Mad Men” type era—I was all over it! Unfortunately, it didn‘t have the narrative feel I was hoping for, and instead I found it very biographical and dry.

Cinfhen I saw similar reviews, which is a shame because this could have been great!!! Did u ever end up reading 4y
Cinfhen I thought that was well done!!! 4y
Reviewsbylola No, I did not. The first person plural completely threw me off and I really wasn‘t enjoying it solely for that reason. I bailed and I‘m scared to try again. 😭 @Cinfhen 4y

Cinfhen It took a few pages for me to adjust to that format but once I did I kind of appreciated what the author did!! I‘d say try again but I feel like you‘re not gonna get past the “we” 😟😂😝 4y
Kalalalatja Reading the first few lines of your post, I got all excited, but then it went away again 😐 4y
WorldsOkayestStepMom I watched the tv series a few years ago, but I had no idea it was a book! 4y
Reviewsbylola I‘m pretty sure I won‘t either. 😬 @Cinfhen 4y
Reviewsbylola I know! Such a disappointment. @Kalalalatja 4y
Mdargusch That‘s too bad. It looks like it could‘ve been a good one! 4y

Tanisha_A @Cathythoughts @ephemeralwaltz Ladies, I am not playing the challenge, but today's prompt reminded me of the movie 'October Sky' (a brilliant watch) which is based on the book #RocketBoys, where a bunch of boy gang get inspired to make their own rocket after witnessing the launch of Sputnik. 😀 Haven't read the book, but I am sure it's very interesting! 4y
Kalalalatja @Cathythoughts @ephemeralwaltz @JennyM I plan ahead too, otherwise I‘ll just get overwhelmed and end up not posting anything 😄😄 4y
