Apollo 13 is a great book. If you have seen the movie, you will love the book. It has a lot more detail than the movie and gives more information about Lovell's life before Apollo 13. I will read it again for sure! This is a great book for anyone who loves space, NASA, or suspense.

The Sucessful Failure
I loved the movie Apollo 13. It was a great movie.I never read the book of it, but I am sure it's just as good. Apollo 13 was such a interesting movie.The whole story of Apollo 13 is so great thats way I give it 5 stars. And the thing about it is that it really happened. None of it was made up.Imagine how the astronots felt on that mission. They were so happy to final get to walk on the moon. To other people at that time walking on the moon was not exiceting anymore,Cause we had already walked on the moon.Four other astronots already walked on the moon and to most people going back was not that great. But to the astronots on the mission Apollo 13 it was a dream come true.But they never got to walk on the moon cause of the expolosion that happened. The astronots on that mission were not sure if they could make back home alive. But they did.And still today not many people care about the moon or space or science. Instead they are to busy worrieing about the latest trends or actors and singers, or whats on TV. People these days don't know, and will never know, how hard it is to be an astronot, and fly in space. And how hard it was for the astronots on Apollo 13 to do evertihg they did. And those things like learning about space and science are alot more important then knowing what movies are playing and what new songs are out.I think more people should be into space and science. And for people that already are, I think that the movie and book of Apollo 13 are great to watch or read.
