In the nineteenth century, French author Jules Verne awed readers with astounding adventures that transported them to the ends of the Earth, plunged them into the ocean's depths, and dropped them into mysterious subterranean realms. Dubbed Voyages Extraordinaries, these unique blends of action, adventure, and science fiction offered prescient glimpses into the future and a level of scientific speculation unprecedented in imaginative fiction.




The three novels collected here represent some of Verne's most innovative and entertaining adventures. Around the World in Eighty Days is the chronicle of irrepressible adventurer Phileas Fogg, whose wager to circle the globe involves him in one cliff-hanging escapade after another. Journey to the Center of the Earth tells of intrepid explorers who discover a subterranean world of prehistoric marvels and menaces at the Earth's core. In Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas, scientist hero Captain Nemo investigates the exotic mysteries of the deep in his space-age submarine, the Nautilus. Two of these novels (Journey and 20,000 Leagues) are presented here with new English translations, and all three are newly illustrated with the incomparable fantasy art of Nate Pride.

It's cool how he used imagination and tried to keep things as scientific as possible. I'm sure this story inspired many after it. Merged review:It's cool how he used imagination and tried to keep things as scientific as possible. I'm sure this story inspired many after it.

4.0 Review of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne
Somewhat surprisingly, I really enjoyed this book. I am always wary of reading old science fiction as you never know how well it would age, but I thought this was really well done. Like most 19th century French authors, Verne does get carried away with the descriptions (I may have nightmares about h...
