Is it good?  I have yet to read the first one, but will check out the second book if I like the first.  But I love the film! :smile:

Just about to read "Apollo Pilot" the memoir of Apollo 7 astronaut Donn Eisele.

It's a slim volume, but I'm reliably informed his blunt views make most of the other astronaut autobiographies "look like kids' books".

Finished it the other day there, quite good! :smile: I'd recommend reading the first book as it varies quite a bit with the ending if you're gonna read them all. :smile:

Just finished "Airborne" by Robert Radcliffe. Exciting WW2 adventure, first in a trilogy. The next instalment "Freefall" is due for release in the next few weeks-looking forward to it!

I am currently reading Final Girls by Riley Sagar. If you are into slasher horror films then I would recommend giving it a go. The story is based around three girls who were the only survivors of separate killing sprees. I am about half way through it and really enjoying it!

While I'm waiting for Freefall I'll be reading "He". An imagining of my comedy hero Stan Laurel's life by John Connolly.

A bit hesitant tbh 'cos I know it won't be all sweetness and light.

Listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on audio book. I've been struggling to focus on books recently but I'm making my way through a book called Jane Doe by Victoria Helen Stone. I'm enjoying it but I just don't have the time to read at the moment.

I'm the same recently. Haven't gotten much farther in Artemis since I posted. Always mean to get a bit done in bed at night but finding I've wasted too much time and rather go to sleep than stay up. lol

"D Day Through German Eyes-The Hidden Story of June 6th 1944"

This book is based on the accounts of German soldiers from various units who were interviewed in 1955.

Recurring themes are the tension of the days before the invasion, the shock at the scale of the attack and the horrors of battle.

It gave me a greater understanding of the motivation of the ordinary Wehrmacht soldier.
