    Description

    Bored with inactivity following the end of the Civil War, the fanatical members of the American Gun Club in Baltimore look for a project to fulfill their passion for rearms. Their distinguished President, Impey Barbicane, proposes an exciting new endeavor - one that will cement their names in history: They will build the largest projectile ever known to man and shoot it at the moon! The bullet will be hollowed to accommodate Barbicane and two bold companions, along with their dog, and they will claim the moon as America's 37th state.

    From the Earth to the Moon describes the sometimes hilarious and always surprising events leading up to the launch of the projectile, while Around the Moon follows the three intrepid astronauts on their dangerous journey into outer space.

    PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

    Earth to Moon

    A very enjoyable production. Beautiful, clear voice and well-paced reading. It’s OK to rewind a few seconds when details get overwhelming: this is what Jules Vern is all about. His enthusiasm for American ingenuity is unwavering and contagious.

    robotic

    after almost 20 minutes I gave up trying. the narration is just too robotic. perhaps I will try again with a different narrator, but this has left an unpleasant taste in my brain.

    Good listen, but...

    Great content provided in great clarity from an unfortunately boring narrator. I do not exaggerate when I say I never understood what people meant when something was so boring they were put to sleep. I legitimately understand now. I listen at work and it has legitimately sapped energy from me. But, the content that's provided in this version is excellent, and I would definitely recommend it over the other options but I recommend listening in stages.

    Interesting but slightly tedious adventure

    I love the details in all of Verne's books. This one goes into physics of projectiles in detail as well as long lists of mountain ranges, coordinates, and lists of inspirational minds of great accomplishments. Also, they shoot three men to the moon in a giant bullet.

    not up to Verne's usual standard

    the concept of a team of scientific logical men undertaking to be shot to the Moon with no thought into how they would return is too unbelievable

    Two great books!

    Interesting how many things ended up being similar with how it actually happened in Apollo. Great to have both books in one because it’s really one story.
