Not a very good quality scan.

Jules Verne is constantly touted as a writing visionary. Like 20,000 leagues, Jules sets this story about the Baltimore Gun club's quest to put a man on the moon circa late 1800s. The book is an easy read, but its attraction to me is that as an engineer I found the book's detailing of the latest scientific theories around the moon's composition, the physics around space travel, and the requirements to survive the journey charming. I was captivated how Jules brought together this factual information and wove it into an engaging tale of adventure. Looking from a 20th century perspective, you cannot help but chuckle at the theories and conclusions Jules outlines in the character's observation. Lastly Google's scanning of this book was surprisingly ok to good. I am not a big fan of their efforts - I find that just because its free doesn't mean Google shouldn't make every attempt to correct scanning errors. The scanned words in this book are 90-95% making reading it feasible without any jarring garbled text.

So poorly converted, the first chapter was an excersize in decryption.
