One of my favorites. Well read (except for the eery 1950s communist background music that is interspersed at the end/beginning of some of the chapters that comes out of nowhere). As a space race/apollo fan i woudl like to think i knew a fair bit about the milestones in this area, but this book is full of stuff you don't get anywhere else, especially the inner workings of the USSR. Well paced, and in the end, has a great summary of the impact of these decisions on the next 40 years of history. Just awesome, highly highly recommeneded.

Excellent writing - so much historic facts and very objective behind the scenes information. I have listened to about 25 audiobooks so far in this year and this is the one I have enjoyed the most. Charles Stransky as narrator also did a great job - his reading style and the voice makes listening joyful and I hope there will be more books coming out narrated by him.

What made the experience of listening to Red Moon Rising the most enjoyable?
Although I bought Red Moon Rising with a particular interest in the space race, I actually found the political background more interesting with just the right amount of detail to give an exciting listen.
Any additional comments?
For anyone with an interest in early cold war politics and / or the early space race, there is something here to take away but the combination of both is really well done.
