I really liked this book. It was easy to read. I would recommend it for young adults who like science fiction or books about outer-space. Jules Verne is one of my favorite authors. I want to read the sequel soon.

This is another eximpliary nvel by Venre. He has really outdone himself in this work of science fiction. In my opinion, it is one of the best books in his Amazing Voyages collection. It is also very short and can be read by the average adult in one to two days.

When reading the book, I was surprised at how scientific it was. What great vision Verne must have had to create some of his calculations. It's a shame he never got to see the first moon landing, but he should proud of his foresite, and his contribution to the science fiction genre.

I read this book a long, long time ago but it was great fun to read it again and refresh my memory and it is amazing how accurate some of his predictions were about a trip to the moon over 100 years before it actually happened.

Jules Verne is not one of my favorite authors, although I've also read "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" and Journey to the Center of the Earth". Verne writes like a scientist, which can be interesting at times, but in doing so, he, in my opinion, does so with little story-telling skill. I enjoy reading H. G. Wells more. Wells' stories may a be more simplistic, but ultimately more readable. Also, I think the title "From the Earth to the Moon" is very misleading. The actual "journey" is only about 5 pages long and is at the end of the story. All the rest is about the formation of the idea of going to the moon and the building of the spacecraft.
