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.
