    " Good story, but I had to skip most of the descriptions of the forests and the river - it felt like half of the book was a geography lesson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 6/29/2011

    " A Jules Verne adventure and mystery traveling down the Amazon on a huge raft. Not as exciting or involved as "The Mysterious Island" butt involves the Amazon and takes place in the nineteenth century, thus it was of interest to me. Interesting natural history "facts". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kirt | 4/24/2011

    " Jules Verne was a living library of knowledge about geography, cryptography, and all manner of science. I confess to skimming the more effusive parts not critical to the tale. The story was satisfying. A good read. "

    " Une aventure très passionnante, tell quelle sont généralement les aventures écrite par Jules Verne. C'est un de ces récits dont on en ne voudrait jamais terminer la lecture. "

    " Tak túto knihu som nepoznala...ale bola fajn...staré, dobré, dobrodružná cesta, rozlúštenie tajnej šifry, spomenutý môj oblúbený Edgar Allan Poe a štastný koniec :)
    Niektoré knihy len tak zhltnem...toto bol taký malý 300 stranový hlt.

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
