Ok, let's start with the fact that these are some of the most attractive books going. Another Barnes and Noble classic to add to my ever-growing bookshelf!
"Jules Verne - Seven Novels" comes in a beautiful blood red, leather bound cover with gold and black embossed design. It is quite frankly, beautifully bound with much attention to detail. Looking inside of the book, you turn the page to a gorgeous print of a vintage world map. It comes with a taupe-gold ribbon to keep your place and high quality paper pages (edged in gold). The text is relatively small, though perfectly readable and it contains seven of Verne's novels:
Five Weeks in a Balloon
A Journey to the Centre of the Earth
From the Earth to the Moon
Round the Moon
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
Around the World in Eighty Days
The Mysterious Island
This book is a pleasure to read, I simply have to lay it on my lap and the pages fall open to the right place. It is relatively heavy so this is handy!
All in all, I would highly recommend it to anyone, as a treat to yourself or someone else. You can't put a value on a good story.
