I had mixed feelings about this book. One reason I liked the book mainly for its organizational structure, taking the reader through the story of Apollo II' s historic flight 20 years ago from lift-off, through ``The Eagle has landed,'' to splashdown and subsequent quarantine (fear of ``moon germs''). For example, the book is organized through the use of chapters outlining the launch, the recruitment of astronauts, the spacecraft's destination (the moon), to the landing and moonwalks. The second reason I liked this book is because of its sentence structure. The sentence structure is composed of simple yet specific sentences to portray the information. For example, "Nothing moves. There is no wind or weather. No sign of life anywhere." The sentence structure is set up so that the reader can take his or her time in reading and comprehending each piece of information at a time. I disliked the book would be because of its illustrations. I feel that the real images of what really happened and what was experienced would have enhanced the reader's experience. Instead, graphic unrealistic pictures were used throughout the book. This makes the book feel as though there isn't a realistic connection to what the reader is reading. If the author/illustrator had included real pictures then this would have allowed the reader to see the real image or item represented within the text. For example, the illustrations portraying the moon walk are unrealistic images that hinder the reader's ability to make a real connection to what they are reading. The main idea of this book is to inform the reader about the many difficulties and success that astronauts have had when trying to explore space and that hard work will pay off in the end.
