It definitely doesn't feel like it took me a month to get through this monstrosity. Though I did break between books with other novels, so it was much more manageable.

So. Jules Verne, one of our great forefathers of science fiction. He provides massive amounts of science and math, which go above my head most of the time. Regardless, I like him. I even like the movies that were based upon his novels. Even after this collection, I still want to read more of his stuff. A reliable source (aka, Wikip...more

20,000 Leauges Under The Sea:

I have never seen the movie, tho now, having read the book, I will most definetly go out and rent it. I was always under the impression that the whole novel was based on a submarine trip to the bottom of the ocean to fight a gigantic squid...

I could not have been more wrong. Verne is quickly becoming a favorite author of mine. While his books get very technically and scientifically descriptive (which makes for a long, hard read), I find myself pulled in and turning p...more

The book is decent - it has the Verne stories in it (20,000 Leagues, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Around the world in 80 days, etc.) and is nicely bound and printed. There are some typos, however, and though the illustrations are kind of neat they're clearly artistically done by someone who's never read the descriptions (Hans, the Icelandic guide from Journey, had a "Herculean" build and the illustration shows him as a shorter fattish man). From the Earth to the Moon didn't interest me in...more

This work was Journey to the Center of the Earth. Just the other day, I realized I had never read it. I loved the old movie and being the reader that I am, I could not believe my neglect.
This is the translation of the Jules Verne original and I must say, at times the reading is rough. It was written and translated long ago so some of the words are...confusing as well as sentence structure and meaning. But even through all that I still enjoyed the read. I did find the main character a bit childis...more

Fabulous mind in an age where man could do anything... the age of savants... the only thing left to read is Vernes Biography. I can't wait!

I have read these stories as a child and teenager now I am rereading them because they were amazing then and still are.
Scott Holmes
Tales from my childhood. Ah but science fiction can come true.
