A courier of the Czar must be dispatched to warn the Governor-General of Sibera at once: Ivan Ogareff has allied himself with the fierce and ambitious Feofar-Khan. The Tartar chiefs are pouring their men into Siberia and fomenting rebellion. Should Ivan Ogareff and his allies succeed, the Siberian provinces will be wrested away from Russian control. 

No man is more capable of handling such a dangerous mission than Michael Strogoff. A native of Siberia, he knows the people and their languages, the challenging terrain, and how to survive the harsh winters. His great strength and courage are also matched by a kind and generous heart. Hunger, fatigue, capture, torture—nothing except death will stop him from completing his mission.

    " I DO LOVE IT! I GOT THIS BOOK WHEN I WAS LITTLE GIRL , WHO CAUGH BAD COLD! I ALSO HAVE SEEN THE MINI SERIES, ( PRODUCED IN 1975-76) IT WAS REALLY FUN AS WELL. IF ANY ONE HAS THE COPY OF THE MINI SERIES, PLEASE DO ME A FAVOUR AND LET ME MAKE A COPY! "

    " I read and loved this as a teen. Revisiting it was a weird experience; it seemed rather dated, and in places clunky and eye-rollingly cliche - but of course, this is the novel that created that cliche. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Georgy_kovacs | 7/2/2013

    " This book was the most influential book during my childhood - I remember hot Summers when I did not want to play outside, watch TV or do anything else but to know what would the next page would bring. This book is a gem, especially for young readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sophie Masson | 3/30/2013

    " One of my favourite childhood books and still reads very well. Verne's best novel. Pity there hasn't been an English translation for a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Akrabar | 2/24/2013

    " A great adventure novel from the creator of the science fiction genre and my favourite writer! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olivia Johnson | 1/20/2013

    " Besides Verne's Around the World in Eighty Days, Michael Strogoff is one of my favorites. Might be slow starting out, but pretty soon you start reading the twists and turns, and before you know it you are caught up into the book! Well worth the effort to read!!!!! "

    " I read Verne's "Michel Strogoff" in dutch as "Michel Strogoff: Koerier van de Tsaar"
    (early 1980's edition, I think). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frederik | 2/13/2010

    " Magnifiquement bien concu, cet aventure devrait être obligatoire á tous les gamins de l´âge de 11 á 15 ans.

    - Et pour ceux qui ont 32 ans et adore toujours les livres aventuriers et naifs des grands écrivains. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hightatras | 12/27/2009

    " Spoiler: Am besten gefiel mir die überaus pathetische Idee, daß der übermenschliche Protagonist seinem Schicksal (von Banditen geblendet zu werden) dadurch entgeht, daß er kühlende Tränen vergießt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rayrumtum | 9/21/2009

    " It is a typical Jules Verne book with a lot of action and weak on characterization. I enjoyed it because of my interest in 19th Century Russia, but his sci-fi probably holds up better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sibyl | 4/4/2009

    " Het is al een hele tijd geleden dat ik dit boek gelezen heb, het enige wat ik met zekerheid kan zeggen is dat ik er toen van genoten heb. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jorge | 11/10/2008

    " Uno de los tantos libros leídos en mi niñez. Toda la literatura de Verne siempre me resultó apasionante. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cindy | 9/17/2008

    " This book is slightly crazy, but in a good way. It's basically the book equivalent of a summer blockbuster, with lots of improbable action and not much artistic merit. If that's what you're in the mood for, it's a pretty good read. "

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.
