More About the Author

Jules Verne was born in Nantes in 1828, the eldest of five children
of a prosperous family claiming French, Breton, and Scottish
ancestry. His early years were happy apart from an unfulfilled
passion for his cousin Caroline. Literature always attracted him
and while taking a law degree in Paris he wrote a number of plays.
His first book, about a journey to Scotland, was not published
during his lifetime. However, in 1862, Five Weeks in a Balloon was
accepted by the publisher Hetzel, becoming an immediate success.
It was followed by Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Twenty
Thousand Leagues under the Seas, Around the World in Eighty Days,
and sixty other novels, covering the whole world (and below
and beyond). Verne himself travelled over three continents, before
suddenly selling his yacht in 1886. Eight of the books appeared after
his death in 1905--although they were in fact written partly by his
son, Michel.

A bit pricey but a very, very nice copy of this classic story. Nice, big size, good quality paper, and nice cover!
Tastes change as we age 9 Nov 2014

I loved this book when I was young, almost 5 decades ago. I was fascinated by the cleverness of these men and the road they followed to survive, which mimicked the development of mankind. Re-reading it as an adult was mostly boring. I was still fascinated by how they managed to develop the necessities of survival (and much more) but my much-higher adult-expectations went mostly unfulfilled. The main problem is lack of character depth. We are only superficially introduced to the players; the story revolves primarily around what they do and, for the most part, glosses over who they are. I got to the point where I just didn't care.
