Years ago I read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, A Journey to the Center of the Earth, From the Earth to the Moon, Around the Moon and Around the World in Eighty days. I missed Jules Verne's short stories, so I bought this book to read again and for our family library.

The book is nicely leather bound with fake gold edging and marker ribbon, plus interesting B/W pictures of some of the characters talked about. Its 820 pages of reading fun. Remember Jules Verne was a Frenchman who hated anything to do with war. His writings were done in the late 19 Century so some of his ideas like life and atmosphere on the moon have been proven false. Just go with the flow and don't try to analyze this book.

His Epic Twenty Thousand Leagues INMO was his best. Many of his ideas about submarines have come true. We see Captain Nemo , and crew of the submarine Nautilus sinking warships and taking on some shipwrecked people including a "harpooner". Classic underwater action.

Journey To The Center of the Earth was great too about an expedition to the center of the earth and back with a professor, his nephew and guide "Hans". Fantastic character development and plot. Of course this is SF as the Earth's interior is a solid core surrounded by molten magma. Again don't analyze it, just enjoy it.

From the Earth to the Moon takes place with the "Gun Club" president Barbicane ,super strong metal plate maker Nicholl and a Frenchman Michel Ardan an explorer. We see them shot out of titanic gun in Tampa town USA, enclosed in a projectile with 2 dogs and chickens to be set loose on the moon. They are looking for intelligent life on the moon and believe the moon has a partial atmosphere. Again wishful thinking. They are trapped in lunar orbit because of a passing meteor and later in Around the Moon are sent back to Earth by the explosion of another meteor. Great action and plot.

Around the World in 80 days was great with a reserved gentleman and man servant taking a 20,000 lb. bet they can go around the earth in 80 days. Phileas Fogg the gentleman is hounded by an English detective for bank robbery a crime he did not commit. Great characters and plot. Lots of action saving a beautiful woman and having to use many different kinds of transportation.

The 3 short stories were great as I read these for the first time. Doctor Ox's experiment is about subjecting a small peaceful town to large amounts of oxygen and seeing how aggressive people, animals and plants become. There is almost war with a small village.

Master Zacharious is about an old clock maker, who is dieing and his clocks failing. He wants to remain alive and who almost gives his daughter to the devil to do it. Excellent story.

A Drama in the Air is about a "Balloonist" who is almost killed by an unwanted passenger madman. Excellent.

This Works of Jules Verne is a classic by one of the worlds great writers who hated war. Remember just to go with the flow of the book and you will enjoy it. 5 stars

I was buying this book for the beautiful cover. The book did not come in looking like this. It was green and gold but did not look like this on the front.Could’ve gotten another one that looked different from the picture for a lot cheaper. Not happy.Not pleased.
Good quality
excellent series and compilation of hard to find writings of a master.
A gift
What a beautiful book. Very pleased with my purchase.

very good
