When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space? Today, like so many of Jules Verne's prophecies, space travel is a reality. Here's a fun adventure story that shows how Verne, with foresight that is at times almost eerily accurate, envisioned a trip to the moon.

While the writing is fantastic, the story really leaves the leader disappointed. A lot of build up for a very brief and unfulfilling ending.
"Longer than needed and boring."
I bought this book after my wife recommended it. After listening to most of the book and never getting to that part "where it gets better" I was very dissapointed. After explaining the plot and story to my wife she then said that she might have listened to a child's abridged version of the book. This book is repetitive, the reader sounds like a tired old grandfather. Do not recommend.
