Well, as you can see from the last couple of posts, I'm just not doing much reading these days. I've actually been doing a lot of non-fiction reading and re-reading of books. I finished re-reading one of my favorite fiction books of all time last night. You know it's a good book when you stay up too late to finish it and you've read it before and know what happens!!
I'm not sure when I first read this book, but it was in the last 8 years since I remember I lived in my current apartment at the time. I finished re-reading it and it was as good as I remember it being the first time around. The setting is back in 1975 and astronauts are doing further exploration on the moon. Two of the astronauts prepare to return to orbit to meet their spacecraft and return to Earth when their lunar module's engine fails to start, thus stranding them on the moon with limited oxygen remaining. They decide to go exploring while they wait for their oxygen to run out rather than just sitting around waiting to die. And make an incredible discovery!
This is an imaginative and creative book, exploring ideas of what might have been. I don't want to give too much away. :-)
I'm getting some books from paperbackswap that sound good - Deep Freeze by Thom Racina, Brevig Mission Plague by Frank Simon, Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe by Larry Osborne and some others.
