1. The nice full-page illustrations by Roger Leyonmark at the beginning of each act in the hard copy are ruined in the Kindle Edition by a big box with FPO in it. I guess I should be glad to have anything, if FPO means licensed For Print Only.
2. The cover art from the hard copy book is missing from the Kindle edition completely.
3. The extensive notes have been included but not hyperlinked. If you want to refer to the notes as you read, you will have to bookmark that section or jot down the displacement location.
Sadly, even with these problems, it still is one of the better electronic editions of Verne. So many are simply horrible quick conversions to Kindle from Project Gutenburg.
"Journey Through the Impossible" was intended as a true spectacle (done in collaboration with noted playwright Adolphe d'Ennery). Thus, Verne pulls out all of the stops and uses all of his devices. In so doing, the protagonists journey farther than ever before. It's perhaps the wildest of all of his stories.
An absolute must for serious fans of Jules Verne's science fiction.
