4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for a literary gamesman..Verne would approve., 26 May 1996
By A Customer
This review is from: The Other Log of Phileas Fogg (Mass Market Paperback)
Farmer is one of the premier literary gamesmen of the day, as his two "biographies" of Tarzan and Doc Savage showed. Here, he turns his attention to Verne...explaining discrepencies in Verne's AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS, involving the more famous Captain Nemo in the process (who is revealed not to be an Indian Prince, but Professor Moriarity). Infuriating to the literalist, but excellent fun for anyone with imagination. A little too dry in areas, and the dialogue is forced sometimes...which may be more Verne's defect than Farmer's, since he had to work with other author's concepts and characterizations. Still, quite excellent.
