This would have recieved more Stars had the whole style of the book been more in the vein of Jules Vernes section of the book.
From what I understand this is the only 'novel' by Edgar Allen Poe though in respects of the version I have(an older copy not pictured)it would be more a Novella being 70 pages only.
The Poe story was largely dismissed by the author later on although has been attributed as being of interest to Herman Melville and undoubtably Jules Verne who provides the second part/sequel

I bought an older copy of this book and I have to say it wasn't what I was expecting. The title page for the book only gives part of the title. I was mislead to believe this was going to be a macabre tale. To my surprise, and liking, it turned out to be an adventure story! I couldn't put it down!

La seule histoire du monde Qui commence mal, continue mal et fini très mal.
c'est un régal pour qui aime les bonnes histoires de bateaux, de naufrages et d'aventures.

Poe was not a novelist for a reason. Also this is pretty racist.

Poe leaves you wanting for SO much more with his "ending"!
