Reviews - What do customers think about From the Earth to the Moon (Bring the Classics to Life: Level 4)?

Remarkable!  May 2, 2010
With the end of the American Civil War, the Baltimore Gun Club (dedicated to artillery pieces) sinks into depression as its expertise is no longer needed. However, salvation comes when the president of the Club, Impey Barbacane, challenges the Club to use its artillery expertise to launch a manned vehicle to the Moon. It's the kind of challenge that no American can resist, and soon the world is treated to the very first attempt to leave the Earth.

Jules Verne, that master of early science-fiction first published this remarkable book in 1865, and it is amazing how many of Verne's ideas found their echo in the real space program of 100 years later. Verne places his three(!) intrepid explorers in a "cylindro-conical" projectile that was quite close in size to the Apollo Command Module, the launch structure was built in Florida, and more. Indeed, for its time, this book must have been viewed as as much a work of science as fiction - the author went to great lengths to explain the science behind his proposed flight system.

Now, admittedly, the science behind Verne's cannon-fire launch system is HEAVILY flawed, and it never could have worked. But, considering the scientific knowledge of the day, the wonder is that the book is so logical and realistic. And even more, the story is often humorous and always entertaining. If you want to read a really entertaining work of paleo-science-fiction, then get this book, you will not be disappointed!
Great On Kindle  Aug 5, 2009
I am a 12-year-old girl and I am really into astronomy and math and science and I'd have to say that this is a great and educational read if you are someone like me. Oh an it's also a great version (inexpensive, too!) to read on my Kindle2.
From the Earth to the Moon - teacher's prespective  Oct 28, 2008
This is a terrific book for middle to high school students. It relates directly to aerospace education and provides many cross curricular applications in math, science, and language arts.
Free SF Reader  Sep 3, 2007
Unfortunately, From the Earth to the Moon always struck me as being on the rather dull side, so it took me a while to get through it the first time I read it. I can't really recommend this to many, except perhaps those interested in the history of science fiction, or really big Verne fans. The story of the first trip to Earth's satellite.

A Science Fiction Classic  Mar 10, 2007
Jules Verne, the father of science fiction, made several predictions
that came true in this book. The book is exciting from cover to cover.
It deserves more credit than it seems to be getting. It was written over
one hundred years ago. I would recommend this book to any science fiction
fan. Danny Fleming, author of How to Prove The Collatz Conjecture.
