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.

i've spent half of my reading time(including course books) reading the jules vern's novels in my childhood. he is a legend. very few people know about him.

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

Otro que ya está en la bolsa de leídos del maestro Jules Verne. Este en particular es un libro de 3.5/5 puntos, pero lo califiqué con 3 ya que ponerle 4 sería demasiado.

Todo comienza con el hallazgo de un mensaje en un botella. Comienzo esperanzador, sabiendo a lo que nos tiene acostumbrados Jules, y es por esto que las primeras páginas dan la impresión de que estamos delante de una aventura inolvidable. Nada mas lejos de la realidad, lamentablemente. Así es que, luego de armar el escenario de l

As ever, it is quite an adventure to read a Jules Verne’s book. It always amazes me how much he knew about geography, zoology, history and botany, considering the time he wrote his books. I really liked the characters, which seems to be what I enjoy most about his books. And although I feel this book could have been a little bit shorter, I really enjoy it.

Me gustan mucho los libros de Verne por toda la aventura que tienen, y nunca deja de asombrarme todo lo que sabía el hombre para la época e

Tādi kā Verns un Dikenss tomēr māk uzrakstīt grāmatu, ieinteresējot cilvēku arī ar lietām, ar kurām citi nemāk ieinteresēt. Tā, piemēram, šajā grāmatā vismaz 70% ir vēsture + ģeogrāfija, bet piedzīvojumi tikai savi 30%, toties salikts kopā tā, ka ir interesanti lasīt. Šitie stāsti nenoveco.
Ja godīgi, tad tā pat kā seriālā How I Met Your Mother - nebūtu Bārnija, nebūtu seriāla - te - nebūtu Paganela, nebūtu piedzīvojumu :D

After watching the Disney version of the book, I decided to read the book. I thought it was a bit wordy but that seems to be the norm for 19th century writing. The characters were the same but Mary Grant had a much smaller part than in the movie. The ending seemed a bit anti-climatic and the last chapters rushed to tie up the loose ends in a quick neat bow. Overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend this one.

Quizás uno de los libros de Verne que más me ha gustado. El único pero que le pongo es que a veces se me hacía muy pesada tanta descricpión tanto de paisajes como de la historia de los lugares que visitan los protagonistas, pero dejando a parte esto, es un libro emocionante y lleno de aventuras, con unos personajes con los que es fácil encariñarse.

Beautiful book, remarkable. So many emotions and knowledge it gave to me. Despite that i read this trilogy in wrong order and knew some things about this story, however it was amazing. Thank you, Jules Verne, for you wonderful work.

“Kapteiņa Granta bērni” ir franču autora Žila Verna piedzīvojumu romāns, kurš tika sarakstīts 19. gadsimta otrajā pusē, precīzāk, 1867.-1868. gados. Romāns sastāv no trijām daļām, kurās galvenie varoņi (lords un lēdija Glenerveni, majors Maknabss, Žaks Paganells, Mērija un Roberts Granti, kā arī citi) apceļo pasauli caur Patagoniju (Dienvidamerika), Jaunzēlandi un Austrāliju, stingri pieturotes pie 37 grādu platuma paralēles.

Another romping adventure by Jules Verne. This was a new book to me and I love it with a book immediately starts out with a great people, objects and an incredible mission. Not just a note in a bottle, the bottle is found in a shark! Immediately I was sucked in.

There was fantastic adventures through Patagonia and Australia and New Zealand. Brushes with bandits, cannibals and the tribal people. In all of his writing, Verne comes off as respectful and full of admiration for the natives of the land

Una agradable obra que leí de niño y apenas recordaba
Llama la atención la no tan buena publicidad que se le hace a Inglaterra. Es de notar el elemento de confianza en la Divina Providencia y la importancia en moral y educación que se le otorga al cristianismo. Es alentador saber que los sudamericanos gozaban de buena imagen. Un último detalle hace percibir ya la consciencia del exceso en la caza marina al estar desapareciendo alguna especie.

I have tried to read this book, when I was somewhat about 12-13, and dropped. Too many detailed descriptions of every rock and tree the crew has passed. Today I've enjoyed these descriptions.
The book covered a lot of places, and included a few cultures, and actually covered a gap which "Around the world in 80 days" has left (As I said in my review was a good book but lacked the depth which this book has).
The book is good, a classic which is very recommended.

Ricordo che ci rimasi male quando capii che, pur essendo leggibile a se stante, questo romanzo era l'ultimo di una trilogia. Tra l'altro, non ho mai letto il secondo, ovvero "L'Isola Misteriosa". In se stesso comunque è molto scorrevole, come Ventimila Leghe Sotto i Mari, ma ricordo che mi prese meno.

The story is interesting. But it is stretched out just a little long... and can start to get boring.

A Captain Grant is missing, so a rich newlywed couple go on their honeymoon in search of him... with his kids along, of course (hence, the title).

Nepagāja ne 2 gadi, kad grāmata ir beidzot izlasīta :D Pa vidam gan vēl 3 grāmatas tika izlasītas.
Priekš manis nedaudz par daudz bija Paganela vēstures fakti, kas lasīšanu iebremzēja, bet kopumā patika un aizrāva šie mežonīgie piedzīvojumi.

This is a wonderful adventure story. The character Jacques Paganel is an exceedingly hilarious character. Jules Verne does a wonderful job describing the various locales in this adventure. You almost feel like you have been to these places yourself.

Ja neskaita tās daudzās ģeogrāfijas mācību stundas (kas, protams, bija ļoti informatīvas), visnotaļ baudāms, viegls lasāmgabals. Vairāk ceļojuma apraksts, bet ar pasaku elementiem.
