All Around the Moon by Verne, Jules

Format: Paperback

Published by BiblioBazaar, 2007

Continuing the narrative from Jules Verne’s From the Earth to the Moon, Barbicane, Nicholl, and Michael are ready to travel to the moon in All Around the Moon. The three men sit anxiously in their bullet-shaped projectile, ready for take-off. After the launch, their series of adventures and misadventures begin. Barbicane, Nicholl, and Michael must be quick and clever, as they brave an encounter with an asteroid, suffer accidental intoxication, deviate from their course, and face the consequences of miscalculation. Finally, they arrive at the moon. However, instead of landing on the moon like the group planned, their spaceship is stuck in the moon’s orbit. Still, Barbicane, Nicholl, and Michael are in awe. As they gaze upon the moon’s intricate features, memorizing its landscape and craters, the three men realize that they have the sole privilege of seeing the moon―an observation that no man or woman on Earth had yet achieved. But as they dream of the fame and luxurious treatment they are sure to gain back on Earth, another misstep threatens their trip again, and this time, the consequences could be fatal.
