it was amazing
Read from September 07 to 13, 2011

I would have given it five stars but I decided I can't give those out so easily anymore so it got four. I loved the book, it was funny and interesting. It ended at a cliffhanger which isn't bad since I already have the sequel (I just have to wait until school's out to read it). Also, the only other downside is it can be a bit slow at times to read because a few chapters are simply descriptions of preparation and there isn't much dialogue in those. I would recommend it to anybody though who likes satirical fiction and can handle something that was written in 19Th century language (even though it is a translation.)

Okay, so I came back and re rated it five stars. I may be trying to give out five stars less easily, but this book deserved it. It was my first Verne novel, and I am glad too because I have always sort of had this iconic view of Verne, so it was nice to enjoy the first thing I read by him.
