I first read this one during the fall of 1957. I was then all of 12 years old. I just wish I could go back 50 years and read it again for the first time. What wonder! What excitement I experienced! Even though we now know much more about the Moon, and the events in the story now could never have taken place, this is a great story. You can enjoy it even now, in the 21st century, whether you're 12 years old, a little or maybe a lot older. GREAT BOOK.

I was engaged all throughout the book. There was not a dull moment from beginning to end.

Good writing and a good, though not very scientifically accurate from what we know today. A pleasant read.
