John Strock should not be allowed out on his own. A detective? He misses the most obvious clues, ignores evidence and takes for ever to reach conclusions staring him in the face. I am afraid this undermined my enjoyment. As a character he is more far fetched than 'the Terror'. I won't give examples so as not to spoil the story for potential readers, but I suspect they will twig what they are as they go along.
Worth a look, but as a curiosity only.
Verne paints a bleak and cynical landscape that combines adventure with scientific prediction and political relevance. Heartily recommended.

This book is quite readable but in my opinion it is not as good as I would have expected, it tends to drift in places.Published on 7 July 2013 by Michelle
A great read but one really sympathises with Robur! Support the Master of the World - definitely the man to vote for.Published on 20 Jun. 2013 by MF
