More About Jules Verne


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Jules Verne was born into a family with a seafaring tradition in Nantes, France in 1828. Verne was sent to Paris to study law, but once there, he quickly fell in love with the theater. He was soon writing plays and opera librettos, and his first play was produced in 1850. When he refused his father's entreaties to return to Nantes and practice law, his allowance was cut off, and he was forced to make his living by selling stories and articles. Soon he was turning out imaginative stories such as Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and From the Earth to the Moon (1865), which were immensely popular all over the world. His ability to envision the next stage in man's technological progress produced 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870) and Michael Strogoff (1876). His biggest success came with Around the World in Eighty Days (1872). Verne's books made him famous and rich. In 1876, he bought a large steam yacht in which he could write more comfortably than on shore. His books were widely translated, dramatized, and later filmed. He died in Amiens in 1905.

Jules Verne lived in Nantes. Jules Verne was born in 1828 and died in 1905.

Reviews - What do customers think about An Antarctic Mystery?

Great book - too many errors  May 24, 2007
The number of misspelled and missing words in this book make it very hard to read at times.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and will try to find a better copy.
 
sequel to Poe's novel  Sep 9, 2005
I haven't read this yet, but I thought people might like to know that this is a sequel to the only novel of Edgar Allen Poe. H.P. Lovecraft also wrote a sequel and so, in his way, did Rudy Rucker. The rating is how I feel about Verne in general (I've read some 40 or so books of his) and because this system won't accept a review without a rating.
