I gotta be honest - I probably would have given this book 5 stars if I wasn't reading it in another language. French is not my native tongue, so I know I missed things. Probably all sorts of little things that you don't pick up on if you're not fluent. But as is, it was a very solid Verne work - clever and witty, adventurous and grand in scope. Fun. It's a good, fun book. It's not brilliant, and I can see why it didn't become one of his best known works, not one of the classics, but it's solid.
