Review From User :
What a sweet and amusing book.
A very different read to what I was expecting, but it made me smile and it was moving as well!
The main players are;
Thomas Major the grumpy astronaut heading to Mars, also known as Major Tom.
Ellie and James - brother and sister living with their grandmother Gladys.
And of course the main star of the show, in my opinion, Gladys herself ! She is suffering with the start of dementia and knows it....some of her comments and thought are amusing and poignant.
As unlikely as it seems, their lives collide!
Yes, it's a feel good book, but I loved it ...... it really is a must read!
Calling Major Tom is a heartwarming, quirky and ultimately life-affirming story of friendship, family and forgiveness – and the world’s most unlikely astronaut.
A man who has given up on the world. A family who show him how to live.
Forty-something Thomas is very happy to be on his own, far away from other people and their problems. But beneath his grumpy exterior lies a story and a sadness that is familiar to us all. And he’s about to encounter a family who will change his view of the world… for good.
