From the Earth to the Moon (Extraordinary Voyages, #4)

By Jules Verne

Rating: 4 stars

This short little novel concerns the construction of a giant cannon to send a group of three brave men to the Moon. It’s humorous, has some surprisingly accurate science and its Victorian heroes are the Men’s Men that you would expect from that era. Verne writes tongue in cheek about the glorious Americans and takes some sly digs at the British while he’s at it. A fun book.
