Ben Mezrich's best book so far

Strongest narrative. Coolest story. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Non-fiction, True Crime, or have an interest in NASA (they delve in deep!). And to anyone who doesn't like Mezrich's "recreating dialogue" style- let me tell you that this will be his least-challenged book by far as Mezrich had complete cooperation from the main subjects of the book. (It also helps that NASA and the FBI made the details of the heist public)

Great book, people! Give it a shot!

SEX ON THE MOON by Ben Mezrick has a very eye catching name and even a flashier story, that almost seems like it was made for a movie. The story centers around a man by the name of Thad Roberts, growing up Mormon, Thad decides to leave his faith and marry a woman young, being disowned by his parents. He then goes on to enter a NASA internship program. While working in this program he meets a beautiful intern, Rebecca that he soon falls for. He soon uncovers that deep within the Johnson space center there is a safe that contains nearly 21 million dollars worth of moon rocks. He tells Rebecca of his plan and they both begin on how they’re going to pull it off. In the middle of the night they just walk into the Johnson Space center with two other people and carry the 600 pound safe right out. Eventually Thad decides to sell the rocks and using the alias Orb Robinson puts them for sale on a rock collector’s website. The FBI soon catches up to him and lures him in with the false promise of buying his moon rocks, and when he shows up he is quickly arrested along with Rebecca and the two other accomplices.
This book was good but there are many things that I disliked about it, first it seems that Ben Mezrick has to describe stuff in such detail that just describing a hall way could take a whole page, also it felt like this whole book moves way to fast jumping from one thing to another in just a page. With that said there was a lot that I liked, the whole idea of stealing moon rock and actually getting away with it for some time just seems so cool and interesting, plus the fact that he basically got people to carry out the most dangerous parts of his plan makes him the man.
If you like long books that could have been a lot shorter, this book is for you. Also if you like a good heist book that almost seems too unreal to be true this book could also be for you. But if you like a book where all the fluff is left out and you just get to the main facts fast, this book is definitely not for you. Over all I give this book a 3, it was too long for my taste and I found it a little too hard to get into
