Having recently read and enjoyed Carrying Albert Home The Somewhat True Story of A Man His Wife and Her Alligator I decided to go back and read the first book by West Virginia coal miner s kid turned rocket scientist and best selling author Homer Hickam Rocket Boys perhaps best known as the book that inspired the movie October Sky is a heart warming coming of age memoir about a group of boys who dreamt of the future in a town that had very little future to dream about As is often the case the movie pales in comparison to the book which is alive with a rich vitality that comes straight from the heart and a sense of humor that is uniuely Homer Hickam I know this as I have recently been privileged to correspond with Homer and it has been a delightful experience The secret of Rocket Boys is that it isn t really a story about boys building rockets It is a story about relationships relationships with friends with teachers with brothers with neighbors Most important though it is the story of the relationship between the young Homer Hickam and his parents Many of us know that getting along with a father who sees the worlds differently than we do is a difficult In Rocket Boy s Homer did a magnificent job of describing the rocky relationship between himself and his father yet still letting the reader know that the bond between the two was something unbreakable FYI On a 5 point scale I assign stars based on my assessment of what the book needs in the way of improvements5 Stars Nothing at all If it ain t broke don t fix it4 Stars It could stand for a few tweaks here and there but it s pretty good as it is3 Stars A solid C grade Some serious rewriting would be needed in order for this book to be considered great or memorable2 Stars This book needs a lot of work A good start would be to change the plot the character development the writing style and the ending 1 Star The only thing that would improve this book is a good bonfire
