Publisher's Summary

The quiet community of Quiquendone can't be found on any map. There is no crime, no raised voices, no conflict of any kind. And when the enigmatic Dr. Ox ventures into the town and proposes to light the town with a mysterious gas at his own expense, the town elders applaud the proposal. But soon it becomes evident that the secret gas feeds on a different sort of combustion.

Intriguing

I had never heard of or read this book before but I found the questions Jules Verne presented herein to be very interesting and thought-provoking.
