Jules Verne

I’ve always loved Verne’s books.  Some of them are better then others, and others require great patience— for instance, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is easy enough for a nine-year-old to read, whereas its sequel, The Mysterious  Island, is chock-full of scientific statistics and descriptions of how the least little thing works.  However, it is excellent.

One of the best books he wrote was From the Earth to the Moon, and its sequel Around the Moon.  Funny, scientific, interesting, not as hard to read as some of Verne’s other books.
