Around The Moon. At the conclusion of his book From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Jules Verne left his readers and his astronauts hanging in the starry ether. The readers had it the worst, since Verne forced them to wait five years before he resolved the plot complications in his sequel Around the Moon. If the first book was Verne’s equivalent of the Apollo 11 mission, then his follow-up effort was the predecessor of Apollo 13. The lunar expedition goes wrong soon after launch, and the three astronauts not only face the prospect of failing in their original plan of landing on the moon, but are unlikely to survive the trip. No one actually says: “Houston, we have a problem,” but otherwise this story is ready for Tom Hanks treatment on the big screen. (reviewed by Ted Gioia)
