I doubt if there is anything I can say about this book that hasn’t already been said, except that I loved this story much more than I thought I would. I’m never very confident going into science fiction because I tend to either love it or hate it more than any other genre. Jules Verne, of course, is classic science fiction and I found it thoroughly intriguing. The level of creativity and imagination displayed in this book astonishes me given the time period in which it was written. Perhaps that’s why I tend to enjoy the older science fiction more than the new stuff, because I can see how much of it has come to pass and realize the genius of the author who wrote it. This one has a pretty dramatic cliffhanger to boot, which is going to force me to adjust my reading schedule to fit in the sequel. I can hardly wait! In summary, this story deserves its place on the list of classic science fiction and I am sad only because it took me so long to get around to reading it.
