    " Hands down, Jules Verne is my favourite author, but "From the Earth to the Moon" just didn't seem to have the same charm and wonder that classics like "20,000 Leagues..." and "Around the World..." had. Don't get me wrong, this is still an incredible book and the idea that this was written in the late 1800's, long before actual space travel came about; once again, like so many of his books, the similarities between the ideas he dreamed up and what actually came to be are simply uncanny. It's a good book, but to truly enjoy what Verne was capable of producing, it wouldn't be one of my first recommendations. "

    " What an utterly fabulous book! They say Jules Verne started the area of science fiction, although it was not called such until decades later. I love that he interspersed this story of daring, ingenuity, humor, and adventure with highly accurate science of the day. His moonshot plan has its obvious flaws (at least to the modern student of physics), but the grand adventure it involves is delightful reading, and the unexpected ending was a pleasure. I'm inspired to read more by Verne, and ideally in the original French! "

    " I really liked this book. Written over 100 years before man actually landed on the moon, it is an interesting take on what Verne thought the trip would be like. It is hard to comment about the book without spoilers so I'll keep comments general. The book had a lot of humor and parts of it reminded me of the Time Tunnel episode of the trip to Mars. The astronauts headed to Mars had all kinds of room and had plenty of chow and smoked cigs. On the trip to the moon there were dogs on board, good wine, couches, all kinds of food, and 50 gallons of brandy. Not too bad. I was reminded at times that this book was written in the 19th century when Verne compared the speed of the capsule to that of an express locomotive. Verne also talks about how the capsule can't change directions as "a sailor can change the head of the ship or an aeronaut can give a vertical motion to his balloon". Cars and planes were still a long way off when Verne penned his novel. Later, he talks of the gumption of Americans by noting the "bold ingenuity of the Anglo-Saxon race" and how the earth will some day become inhabitable one day due to cooling. Interesting views from the 19th century. Overall, it was a fun read and I was surprised how interesting the science was considering it was one of the first science fiction books written right after the Civil War. "

    " I am re-enjoying the books I found when I was 9 on a box at home. They belonged to the grandmother I never met, but boy we have things in common. This one is dear to me, the first "moonshot". "
