Round the Moon (Extraordinary Voyages, #7)

By Jules Verne

Rating: 2 stars

The sequel to From the Earth to the Moon focuses on the projectile carrying our three brave Selenauts and resolves the cliffhanger left at the end of its predecessor. This one, unfortunately, fell somewhat flat. It didn’t have the humour nor even the action of FtEttM. It felt quite flat, and lecture-like at times, and although a lunaphile may be delighted with its descriptions, I found myself skipping over them in an attempt to get to a good bit that never materialised. It’s worth reading to complete the story and since it’s quite short, but it didn’t grab me at all.
