From the Earth to the Moon (French: De la terre à la lune) is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne. It tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, a post-American Civil War society of weapons enthusiasts, and their attempts to build an enormous Columbiad space gun and launch three people-the Gun Club's president, his Philadelphian armor-making rival, and a French poet-in a projectile with the goal of a Moon landing. Five years later, Verne wrote a sequel called Around the Moon.
So in Jules Verne's version, you would feel the net force of gravity.
In this part, the three travelers are in the space ship (which is just a giant shell that was shot from a canon) and traveling too the moon. The "neutral point" that they refer to is the point where the gravitational force from the moon and the Earth are the same, but in opposite directions. So in Jules Verne's version, you would feel the net force of gravity.
