Synopsis: A prophetic novel in terms of scientific inventions and social attitudes. Verne narrates the story of some artillery officers who are idle after the end of the American Civil War; it depicts their ambitions for a new project. Aiming to land on the moon, their planning and ideas are brilliantly presented and keep the readers excited from the beginning to the end.

About the Author: Jules Verne studied law but began writing stories and working in theatre as well. When Verne's father discovered his son was writing, he promptly withdrew his financial support. Verne then worked as a stockbroker.His wife encouraged him to pursue his writing, and he became acquainted with Pierre-Jules Hetzel, an important French publisher. Hetzel helped improve Verne's writings, which until then had been repeatedly rejected by other publishers. He died a wealthy man in 1905.
