ALL that could be discovered, however, on these pieces of paper was a few words here and there, the remainder of the lines being almost completely obliterated by the action of the water. Lord Glenarvan examined them attentively for a few minutes, turning them over on all sides, holding them up to the light, and trying to decipher the least scrap of writing, while the other ...more

در روز ۲۶ ژوئیه ۱۸۶۴ میلادی، یك كشتی تفریحی بسیار زیبا به نام “دونجان” كه متعلق به “لرد گلناروان”، یك اصیلزاده اسكاتلندی بود، اولین سفر دریایی خود را در کانال شمال به سمت بندر گلاسکو آغاز كرد. بر فراز بلندترین دكل كشتی پرچم انگلیس در اهتزاز بود و در آن لرد گلناروان و همسر جوان او “هلن” و دوستانش قرار داشتند. آنها به طور اتفاقی یک كوسهماهی را به قلاب انداختند و صید كردند. در شكم حیوان دریایی یك بطری پیدا كردند كه درون آن سه نوشته به زبان های انگلیسی، فرانسه و آلمانی قرار داشت كه حامل پیامی از یك ...more

Un ¡BOOM!, resuena en la cabeza al querer recordar todo lo que ha sucedido en el libro. Tiene más de 700 páginas y viajan del oeste al este recorriendo casi 360º de longitud. Todo para buscar a un buque naufragado y en especial al padre de dos hermosas criaturas que pidieron ayuda a todo un caballero, y que se echa la expedición a sus hombros y cartera.

Es el libro más valorado de Verne, y uno de los menos conocidos por no tener su toque de ciencia ficción y de predicción futura. Ocurre absolutam

Quando a pagina 7 ho incontrato il primo refuso, ho storto un po' il naso; ma i refusi sono cose che capitano e ho ingenuamente pensato che questo sarebbe stato l'unico in duecentoquaranta pagine di romanzo e non era il caso di condannare tutta l'edizione per quell'unico refuso.
Quando sono arrivata a pagina 16, i refusi sono saliti a sei, decisamente troppi per un libro dal prezzo di copertina di € 7,90 con una qualche pretesa di dignità.
Ma il peggio non è nemmeno questo.
Il peggio è che, duran

Por diversos avatares, mi yo niño nunca llegó a leer ninguna novela de Verne. Y casi me alegro. Tildar esta novela de literatura juvenil es realmente desacertado. Se trata de un catálogo geográfico y etnográfico camuflado entre las peripecias de los protagonistas. Habrá quien considere que tiene pasajes tediosos por ser excesivamente descriptivos y habrá quien se escandalice con los sucesivos comentarios racistas y sexistas, que pueden ofender al lector actual, pero que hay que situar en el marc ...more

I hate to do this, but I'm afraid I'm going to have to give my beloved Jules Verne a mere 2 stars for this book. I have been huge fan of "The Mysterious Island" since I was probably 10 or 12, and when I found out this book was a prequel to "The Mysterious Island" I thought "why have I never heard of this book??!!". Well, now I know why. Not every book every successful author writes is worthwhile.

The premise of "Captain Grant's Children" (also published under "In Search of the Castaways") is a m

I'll admit, the movie was/is one of my all-time childhood (and lets face it, adulthood too) favorites. So, I went into this book with certain expectations. Most were met, and it was engaging, exciting, and a very entertaining read. And about 3/4 of it (or more) had nothing in common with the movie, so I did not know exactly what was going to happen as I read it.

My major complaints are few, and really not that major. Some of the slang was unknown to me; the verbiage was at times difficult to get

Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of spa
