I can't believe I haven't read a Jules Verne novel before, and I guess it was appropriate that I started with his first work. I really enjoyed the story, although I was taken aback by the extremely politically incorrect stereotypes used... I tried to keep in mind at all times the time period in which this book was written. Aside from those stereotypes, I thought the book was great. The characters were fun and there was plenty of adventure. "Excelsior!"
