An interesting Sci-fi story from the 1920 written by Thea Von Harbou and later turned into a movie directed by her then husband Fritz Lang. Although the book seems to be a standard adventure story there are some deeper meanings that one unfamiliar with German names and traditions might overlook. I would probably not have enjoyed the book as much if it had not had the introduction Ivor and Deborah Rogers which explains most of the double meanings of the characters names and why they do what they do. It is also interesting in how each character views the moon once they get there, Harbou writes each as viewing it through their Ego which makes their view of the moon the true form according to each person. It gets a little complicated and bogged down in philosophy but the introduction does a good job of explaining it. Overall a good read if you like early sci-fi or are a fan of Harbous other works such as Metropolis ( )
