The performance is really good and the documentary itself is loaded with tons of information and exciting facts. But I felt that the time line of the audiobook could have been organised better. The period between 1963-69 is quite vague. Another issue for me was the repetitiveness of the events and emotions. Apart from that it was a fabulous and quick read. Would recommend it to anyone who loves reading and space

Neil Gaiman is the Lord of all story tellers

One of my all time favourite book (audiobook as well). Neil Gaiman is like an old wise bard telling all the adventures he's ever had in his lifetime. He's one of the best narrators. The style of his writing is so expressive and evocative. He turned a huge and complex mythology into the most memorable bed time stories for people of all ages. Out of all his books, this one is my favourite.

It makes you stop and think.

When I started reading this book, I found myself really captivated with the ideology behind it. Conquering death. Becoming Gods. That really does make one question if this book is merely fiction or a vision of the soon approaching future. This story needs to be applauded for its thought provoking nature, but as a story in general it did not succeed enough.

I'm a avid reader of high fantasy books. And after long years of fantasy novels and intricate plot lines, another story which is not as complex as the ones I've previously read fails to impress me.

The story feels rushed and not adequately seasoned with challenges to either of the protagonists. Being a fast paced plot, it did not focus enough on the charecrer development of either Rowan or Citra. There are a few plot holes and many debatable statements, but overall I feel lucky to have come across this book.

And I would recommend it to everyone.

I've read and listened to this book for like a million times. I just can't get over how wonderful the language and narration is. My personal favourite chapter is 34, reading that chapter makes me wonder every single time about what happened to our language and how did such beautiful proposals get extinct!

A perfect weekend treat for anyone who loved contemporary feel good novels. The book also manages to recommend quite a few books to its readers unconsciously.
