KIRKUS REVIEW

The guessing game began months ahead of time, and the tension continued to build until the actual three-man team for the first moon shot was selected and announced officially. The author concentrates on a study of the close relationships among the three men which develop as they travel through space, always faced with the fear of failure, and of death. The dialogue seems natural; the descriptions of outer space and of the lunar landing are realistically vague and uncluttered by little green men, etc. Far above average science fiction with a strong base in fact, it is written by the author of The Missile Lords (1962, p.1173), an adult book.
