    1. Que habr a pasado si el Apollo XI hubiese fracasado en su intento de llegar a la Luna y un Steve Jobs estuviese obsesionado con recuperar los restos perdidos de la nave Este es el argumento inicial de esta novela breve que habla de la obsesi n, de los sue os de infancia que acaban motivando profundamente nuestro comportamiento en la madurez Me ha gustado, con todas la limitaciones de una novela breve est bien constru da y dotada de ritmo narrativo El protagonista est bien caracterizado con apena [...]


    2. Novela corta que se lee con agrado y basta, para leer sin concentrarse debajo de la sombrilla Solo comentar que si en la portada apareciera Finalista del Premio Hugo 1988 y no 2008, salvo dos detalles las pantallas planas y China como potencia enfrentada a Usa , me lo hubiera cre do Parece un relato nacido viejo.


    3. Engrossing novella about a man with a dream Full of rich believable space detail, human interest, geek interaction and undiplomatic diplomats, all in a parallel universe And a swerving twist at the end Great read, and a good antidote to some of the very long books I ve read recently.


    4. Richard Johansenn as a boy watched along with the world as Apollo 8 missed it s trajectory which would have brought it around the moon and back to Earth, years passed and he built an empire which made him a billionaire and when the opportunity presented itself he reached for the stars to discover the fate of the three astronauts who have ventured into the darkness and never returned home.Recovering Apollo 8 was included in a collection of science fiction offered by Storybundle, as is often the c [...]


    5. Sometimes when dreams come true they are not as exciting and satisfactory and joyful as waiting and planning for their fulfillment are That seems to be the case for the main character of this novella, who grows up dreaming of the fictional lost Apollo 8 ship crew and ends up owning and directing a huge space travel and research company, until he can reach the outer space on one of his spaceships and start making his dream real It takes decades of technological progress and experience between one [...]


    6. This is good Like, really, really good The book takes us through a slightly alternate version of modern reality one in which the Apollo 8 capsule failed to make its orbit of the moon, and instead went spinning out into space, lost to mankind, at least until our hero steps onto the scene A child when the capsule was lost, he has dedicated his life to amassing the fortune and funding the technology that can get him to the lost space craft and to solve at last the mysteries of what went horrible wr [...]


    7. Relato corto que trata de la esperanza, persistencia en cumplir un objetivo, por muy imposible que sea este, hasta el punto de que llega a ser obsesi n.Un relato corto pero intenso, que a trav s de la historia de Richard Johansenn muestra como su obsesi n por los astronautas fallecidos durante una de las primeras misiones espaciales de la NASA controla su vida hasta el punto de que encontrarlos es casi su leif motiv, su fin en la vida Y c mo al final, esa loca esperanza se cumple como una ense a [...]


    8. This was a great short story, which reminds me of the wonder that I still hold for the Apollo missions the great efforts and sacrifices of the people involved, and the great works that they later inspired Being a story about the fictional loss of the Apollo 8 mission I would almost expect it to be a sad story, however this is not the case The loss of the Apollo 8 mission serves as an inspiration to a young boy, a boy whose story we follow into his adult years A lot could have been written in th [...]


    9. The sample chapter was a really intense read on the web and I ordered a copy This is really beautiful, and one of those dreams of space stories that makes you cry.Note it is NOT the short story collection published by Golden Gryphon Press in 2010 and also available as an ebook That is Recovering Apollo 8 And Other Stories This edition contains only Recovering Apollo 8 Which is a really great story, but I was surprised when the book arrived.


    10. Sort of aspirational sci fi, one of those stories about people going out and having adventures for their own reasons, but showing how those adventures demonstrate the best of humanity and make us better individually and as a species Reminiscent of Arthur C Clarke.


    11. Fant stica Novela corta que podr a sin esfuerzo convertirse en libro o pel cula y llegar a lejos Sin grandes desppliegues tecnol gicos, nos pone en una realidad alternativa en la cual la carrera espacial ha ido por un camino diferente.


    12. I got this from Storybundle in a Sci Fi bundle, and I honestly wasn t expecting such a sweet and personal story I don t really read that much Sci fi, but I ll definitely be checking out of this writers work.






    13. Good story about one man s pursuit of a dream Told from his point of view and focuses on motivations and what drives him to search what happens after you fulfill a lifelong dream goal.
