  1. The original Rocket Boys book was terrific This short 110 pages paperback gives an overview of how the book and movie were formulated The movie was planned even before the book was released Hickam related that the preliminary draft script was sensationalized, inaccurate, and barely mentioned the rockets His first meeting and impressions of Jake Gyllenhaal who plays him and Lara Dern who plays teacher Riley are detailed they re reasonably positive Chris Cooper s performance as Hickam s father was [...]


  2. This was a great book for learning just what happens for a book to become a movie This isn t as good as his book, Rocket Boys It was good fun to see the process of turning a book into a movie from the book author s point of view As soon as he sold the movie rights to a production company, that company s representative grinned at him, and commented that now the movie folks had the legal right to do whatever they wanted to with his literary baby A paraphrase which was occasionally too true Luckily [...]

  6. For all of the devoted fans of the Coalwood books, this short novel answers many questions about how October Sky and Rocket Boys came together I had always felt that the movie cheated the book in many ways, although it was an amazing film It was nice to read how hard Homer pushed to have the movie remain true to Coalwood and the people who inspired the story It made me re watch the movie and appreciate it even than before If you are a fan of Rocket Boys, Sky of Stone, or the Coalwood Way, you ar [...]


  7. I loved the movie October Sky It is all that an inspirational movie should be Unfortunately, I ve never read the book Rocket Boys which I will soon rectify This came up as a recommendation in Kindle, so I downloaded the trial portion I read it while on a plane, and tore through it the writing and story are engaging and I was very frustrated that I had to wait to land to buy the full version I ve always been a fan of the story behind the story and this is one great story I ve always wondered what [...]
