As I expected, Mary Roach’s latest book thus far has been both intriguing and a riot to read.  Roach has an amazing talent for combining intensely humorous situations with a fascinating amount of information that makes me thirst for more.  She’s tackling space travel in a remarkably fresh, yet typical, way.  By typical, I mean that it’s reminding me of the joys I had with Bonk, but is instead taking on the subject of space travel with her usual wit.  She’s a phenomenal writer, and I can’t wait to continue getting deeper into the book.
