Extremely disappointing to this Jules Verne fan. Verne's forcast of life in the 1960s is mildly interesting, but not enough so to sustain this plotless, essentially boring novel. It was originally rejected for publication - rightly so. May be of interest to those extremely familiar with French authors and philosophers of previous centuries.
