I feel a bit bad only giving three stars to a masterpiece of literature which has been prepared for Kindle by a group of unpaid volunteers, but I think it would be unfair to publishers who put in the effort to format the books properly for Kindle and include some basics like a table of contents to rate it any higher.

This download includes two books, "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Round the Moon". Both are exceptional stories. If you only care about the story and can live with practically non-existent formatting or being able to skip to a chapter or the second book, then this is for you. Otherwise buy one of the versions you have to pay for and get a better "overall experience".

From my first encounter with this story as a child reading a "Classics Illustrated" comic book and later, as a teen, actually reading the novel, I have always enjoyed it. I treat it in the singular because neither of the two parts is meant to stand alone, though they were first published separately (and sadly, often still are). This public domain edition conveniently contains both halves. The formatting of the text is excellent. The TOC at the beginning lists the chapters of both, although it will not provide direct access to a specific chapter. (You can always use Kindle's "Search This Book" feature to do this.) However, when you have the TOC on screen, by right-clicking the Kindle 5-way button once, you will go directly to part 2. When you have begun reading either half (that is to say, when you are out of the TOC and into any chapter), by right- or left-clicking the 5-way button, you will then be led back and forth, from one chapter to the next, as you may wish, so you can locate a specific chapter this way. In my opinion, this translation is the better, smoother-to-read of the two older ones with which I am familiar, though the translator is not identified. (In the first sentence this translation refers to the U.S. Civil War as "the War of the Rebellion" rather than "the Federal war" of the other translation.) Overall, this is good Verne, a good translation, in a well-formatted public domain edition, at a price (free) you can't argue with.

This is a very hard review for me to write as it makes me confront my boyhood love of this book with a more recent read as an adult.

I read this book in its Penguin edition perhaps four or five times in my youth, having received if at Christmastide when I was about 11 or 12. I loved it, so when I got my Kindle, also at Christmastide last year, it was one of the first books I downloaded and read.

I enjoyed reliving my childhood fascination with this book. I recalled and warmed to Verne's fascination and obvious admiration for American ingenuity and spirit, and I remembered how much of what I learned about Physics started with my young fascination with this book.

But let's face it -- now re-read as an adult, Verne is an effective popular author but not a literary genius. That is, to follow C.S. Lewis's rubric in "An Experiment in Criticism," Verne writes to take us to the event and not for the word (perhaps I would not say that if I read him in French, as I ought to, but still, I can see in writers like Flaubert, Camus, and Moliere that they write for the word). Particularly in the latter part ("Round the Moon"), the writing seems stretched and turgid and artificial, a way for Verne to show off his knowledge of contemporary science and so on.

As the Romans said, sic transit gloria mundi. We get older, we think we get smarter, and we lose something. I'm glad this re-reading took me back to a time of wonder and fascination, something maybe I've lost as I've grown older.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Ryan Jaber on September 13, 2007
Format: Paperback
While the novels themselves are wonderful, this publication of the two novels is horrible. I have never read a book that was put together more sloppy than this. The cover is an ugly yellow / white and since all the text is white, the last part of the title on the spine can't even be read. I can't even count how many spelling and punctuation errors I've found. Names are sometimes spelled with lower case letters and occasionally there will be a period in the middle of a sentence. It also lacks the ability to print any special characters; the British Pound symbol is simply a capital L. In place of the degree symbol they use @ (Which gets very annoying after the twentieth time. There are literally dozens of latitude and longitude measurements and every single one uses @ symbol) In one chapter explaining the algebra behind the passenger's voyage it actually says "<lower case delta>." The errors and character replacements in this were so annoying that it made it nearly impossible to read. The publisher, BiblioBazaar, should be ashamed to have released something so pathetic.

On a side note, the novels themselves are highly recommended.

Absolutely GAWD-AWFUL translation; purple prose predominates! Reads like a parody. Verne is turning over in his grave! Oy my Vey!

Fun, enlightening and mesmerizing! I learned more about the moon than I knew before. Yes, I am not a scientist. Verne obviously had to take a bit of scientific license to complete his story and he does it well. After reading it I learned he wrote it before ever visiting America. He had me fooled.
150 years ago he succeeded in writing a scientific thriller with a pleasant absence of blood and guts and plenty of old fashioned morality and thought. He truly shows us what the TV has taken from us!
Not only is this original sci-fi, but it is a bit of a look into our society from that era.
---- I hope you enjoy the story as much as I did.
