    " 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". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tony Zalmanov | 1/8/2014

    " I think theis book is extraordinary. It is a perfect example of Verne's works although it is significantyl shorter. I cant wait to continue reading the the sequel. I find it incredible that so manny of his calculations are correct even though at the time people had no idea what the distance from the earth to the moon was. The stroy takes amoajor turn near the middle when a request is recieved by telegraph. This is a gripping story that is packed FULL with texhnical data and lots of des crition (a wrighting style used by Verne). This is a great quick read. I would Highly recomend it to people who enjoy Verne and like reading about post civil war times. "

    " This book is about a space team going to the moon.When they got to the moon they started testing everywere.After a while they got some signs of life. "

    " read this one as a child "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris The Story Reading Ape | 12/17/2013

    " When the real first men on the moon got there, did they look for British flags and the beasties Jules Verne described? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Gpl! | 12/15/2013

    " I think it was boring! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy McKitrick | 11/24/2013

    " It wasn't quite what I expected. More technical than I like, but I enjoyed it. Had bits of humor I wasn't expecting. "

    " That's why I say "hey man, nice shot". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ladyhawke1990 | 5/25/2013

    " I think Jules has a fixation with the subterranian "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sindhu | 4/28/2013

    " read it in 2009, absolutely went crazy and read on more jules verne books after this one :D "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 8/7/2012

    " I like the characters in this story. The end has me looking more closely at the moon now, when it is full. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rob Ortelere | 11/30/2011

    " I don't understand why old science fiction authors are fixated by realism and scientific accuracy, specifically on mathematical calculations and details. It makes for a boring read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 11/9/2011

    " I think that had I read this book at a much younger age that I would have cherished it a lot more! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Juan | 7/21/2011

    " It happen in 1969 the first fligt to the moon, and it had a lot in coomon with the flight as imagined 100 years or so begore by the author, even departing from Florida as he conceived it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Evyn Charles | 7/18/2011

    " I read this in the original French when I was a kid. Jules Verne was a one-of-a-kind writer for the ages. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gemma | 6/6/2011

    " I love how Jules Verne picked the same place to launch his rocket that we use today! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebekah | 5/17/2011

    " (audio version) the gay romp through a post civil war gunshot to the moon. I wonder how much Verne knew was absolutely ludicrous. It was fun for conjecture, but in our modern day with modern science it was harder to bear.

    I loved chapter 11 and the argument of Texas vs Florida. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pinar | 5/15/2011

    " Two stars only: One for the great author (He has far greater books as we all know) and one for the character, Michel Ardan. There were so many numbers, loads of calculations. I like sci-fi but this was like pure maths and physics. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Horton | 5/8/2011

    " I might not give this a full five stars, simply because it might seem boring at points, but it gains points simply for being a classic. Anyway, it was inspiring to me, greatly influencing my book TIME PULLERS. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nick | 3/31/2011

    " Not as entertaining as some of Verne's other works, but worth the read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy | 3/27/2011

    " It wasn't quite what I expected. More technical than I like, but I enjoyed it. Had bits of humor I wasn't expecting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Damon | 3/15/2011

    " Pretty cool book. 1865! The oldest book I Have ever read, except the bible of course. Verne systematically plans a trip to the moon. The characters are funny. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Proser | 3/14/2011

    " good but very it look like investigations instead of beeing a novel "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juan | 2/15/2011

    " Es imposible no contagiarse del entusiasmo, lleno de humor, que los personajes de Julio Verne tienen ante la posibilidad alcanzar a la Luna. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chollie | 2/8/2011

    " Just remembered this one as one of my earlier reads, during the years of impression. Quite good--I suppose it's considered dated this day and age. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Simeon | 1/27/2011

    " Not good. In fact, it was bad. Half of the text is calculations for how one would get to the moon in post-Civil War America, the other half is futile attempts at comedy and over-dramatizing the American stereotype. D- "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christos | 1/16/2011

    " one of his best, at times I still recall the making of that rocket "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 12/9/2010

    " Great forsight from the author of space travel although his methods were quite different than what actually happened. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
