By Manny (Geneva, Switzerland) · ★★☆☆☆ · September 12, 2011
Why does Jules Verne often remind me of Monty Python? I mean, it's not funny or anything. Perhaps I was struck by the fact that Robur-le-conquérant doesn't just feature a flying machine called the Albatross, but also gives you a precise figure for the speed of a swallow. Anyway, with further apol... ...more

When I go on a Great Adventure, I like to bring a book with me which also chronicles a great adventure. This is for two reasons; first, to urge me on in my own adventure and push the boundaries of what is expected on said adventure, and second, to give me something entertaining to read about a gr... ...more
By Werner (Bluefield, VA) · ★★★★☆ · November 17, 2008
This book suffered, at the hands of the older English translators, many of the same indignities and mutilations that I mentioned in my review of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (for instance, in the version I read, the Professor's name was Hardwegg, not Lidenbrock!), and this no doubt produ... ...more

Before reading this book, I had taken a glance at some of the reviews posted by others. To my surprise, there had been a lot more negative reception than I had expected, even though at some time or another, any novel will find its detractors.

One of the criticisms I came across was that of this no... ...more
By Dusty (Attalla, AL) · ★★☆☆☆ · January 06, 2009
Seriously, what is this book? Is it a sci fi novel, is it a travel manual, is it a textbook? The only redeeming quality it had was that the narrative was written in such a way to make the reading rather quick.

With that being said, though, I was more than a little disappointed. I thought I would... ...more
By Francis (Pearl River, NY) · ★★☆☆☆ · April 16, 2008
I'm not going to go into a description of the plot because the title says it all. I will only give my overall opinion.

In picking this book up from the library I had fantastic preconceived images burned into my mind of what I might expect to read (prehestoric animals, humanoids, battles, escapes,... ...more
By David (Halethorpe, MD) · ★★★☆☆ · May 20, 2012
I wish I could say this classic is as thrilling as it was when first published, but some books remain cultural milestones for their historical importance, even though more recent, imaginative, and better successors have come along, and this is true of most of Jules Verne's works, I think. He is t... ...more
By Kristen (Harrison, TN) · ★★★★☆ · April 25, 2008
It had been many years since I had read a Jules Verne novel, and to be honest, I couldn't recall his skill as a writer at all. When I dug this book off of my bookshelf I admit, I was simply bored and looking for something mindless to read while the children fought over gluing cotton balls to cons... ...more
By Cherie (Hillsboro, OR) · ★★★★☆ · July 08, 2014
I listened to the audio version narrated by Simon Prebble and I also read the Barnes & Noble Classic collection version. No matter what, I loved the story.

I know, I am odd, I like all of the old Jules Verne stories with all of the old and sometimes wrong scientific stuff and stuffy English t... ...more
