The Last Pilot by Benjamin Johncock

The Last Pilot

The book opens in 1947, when Jim Harrison, a test-pilot for the Air Force, is on his way to breaking the sound barrier.  The novel continues to chronicle Harrison’s life (and more specifically his marriage) with the background of the newly burgeoning space program. All the NASA greats are featured in this book, and author Johncock did get me excited about it with his fascinating descriptions of a pilot’s life in the initial pages.  However, Harrison’s personal life took over and my interest in this novel went down the drain the same time Jim Harrison’s marriage did.
