From the Earth to the Moon

From the Earth to the Moon - Jules Verne Usually i enjoy Jules Verne's work but i'm afraid From the Earth to the Moon just wasn't very good.

The first half of the book seems to be all Verne's workings on how a rocket could be fired to the moon using a giant cannon...

It just gets bogged down in too much detail: the development, the planning, the building by this time i just didnt care if the rocket would take off or not.
