An Antarctic Mystery (French: Le Sphinx des glaces, 'The Sphinx of the Ice Fields’), is an 1897 adventure novel by Jules Verne and is a response to Edgar Allan Poe's 1838 novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. Poe’s telling of Arthur Pym’s narrative is shown to be true as events come together that bring out clues that help Captain Len Guy trace the fate of his brother’s ship the Jane; the very ship that Arthur Pym was on board at the time of his disappearance.

Extrait : "Cette histoire n'est pas fantastique, elle n'est que romanesque. Faut-il en conclure qu'elle ne soit pas vraie, étant donné son invraisemblance ? Ce serait une erreur. Nous sommes d'un temps où tout arrive, — on a presque le droit de dire où tout est arrivé. Si notre récit n'est point vraisemblable aujourd'hui, il peut l'être demain, grâce aux ressources scientifiques qui sont le lot de l'avenir, et personne ne s'aviserait de le mettre au rang des légendes."
The Secret of the Island was another of the series of Voyages Extraordinaires which ran through a famous Paris magazine for younger readers, the Magasin Illustr . It formed the third and completing part of the Mysterious Island set of tales of adventure. We may count it, taken separately, as next to Robinson Crusoe and possibly Treasure Island, the best read and the best appreciated book in all that large group of island-tales and sea-stories to which it belongs. It gained its vogue immediately in France, Great Britain, and overseas besides being translated, with more or less despatch, into other European tongues. M. Jules Verne must indeed have gained enough by it and its two connective tales to have acquired an island of his own. The present book was translated into English by the late W.H.G. Kingston; and is printed in Everyman's Library by special exclusive arrangement with Messrs Sampson Low, Marston & Co., Ltd., 1909.

“I figli del capitano Grant” è un romanzo di avventura che costituisce la prima parte di una trilogia, seguito da “Ventimila leghe sotto i mari” e conclusa con "L'isola misteriosa".
L’esordio del romanzo tratta di una gita marittima su uno yacht in cui i coniugi Glenarvan catturano uno squalo nel cui stomaco trovano una bottiglia con dei fogli all’interno. L’autore di questi è il capitano scozzese Grant il quale richiede un’aiuto dopo il naufragio della nave Britannia. Lord Glenarvan dopo aver decifrato il messaggio che consiste nella collocazione in cui era naufragata la nave, decide di partire alla ricerca del capitano Grant, portando con sé, oltre il proprio equipaggio, il cugino, due ragazzi: i figli del capitano scomparso e un clandestino, geografo francese, personaggio buffo e sconclusionato. È appunto lui che decifrando i frammenti ritrovati, suppone che il naufragio sia avvenuto in Patagonia. Ed ancora quest'ultimo che durante il viaggio dà un’altra interpretazione ai documenti rinvenuti, e li fa dirigere verso l’Australia e nell'Oceano Pacifico. Dopo varie vicissitudini, quando ormai i nostri protagonisti hanno perso le speranze, accade l’imprevisto.
"From the Earth to the Moon" is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne.
Jules Gabriel Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright.
Translated by Lewis Page Mercier and Eleanor E. King
Fondée sur des faits véridiques survenus en 1789, les Révoltés de la Bounty reste la plus célèbre histoire de mutinerie.
Extrait : "Le 26 juillet 1864, par une forte brise de nord-est, un magnifique yacht évoluait à toute vapeur sur les flots du canal du Nord. Le pavillon d'Angleterre battait à sa corne d'artimon ; à l'extrémité du grand mât, un guidon bleu portait les initiales E. G., brodées en or et surmontées d'une couronne ducale. Ce yacht se nommait le Duncan ; il appartenait à lord Glenarvan, l'un des seize pairs écossais qui siègent à la chambre haute, et le membre le plus distingué..."

(1873) As the 2004 film adaptation of Around the World in Eighty Days opens, two significant events happen. First, we see a Chinese man named Passepartout (played by Jackie Chan) fleeing from the Bank of England, which has just been robbed. Secondly, we meet Phileas Fogg (played by Steve Coogan), an inventor who seems obsessed with creating new and faster modes of transportation. As Fogg's current "Valet" (Test Subject) quits, Passepartout lands in Fogg's garden and volunteers for the job, as it's a convenient way to get away from the police who are pursuing him. When Fogg ventures to the Royal Academy of Science to report his latest findings, he's belittled by the cocky Lord Kelvin (played by Jim Broadbent). After a heated debate, Kelvin jokingly states that Fogg should attempt to traverse the globe in 80 days--and Fogg accepts this challenge. Soon, he and Passepartout set off for Paris, where they will begin their journey. There, they meet Monique La Roche (played by Ccile De France), a struggling artist who decides to tag along on their trip. As Fogg attempts to meet his deadline, the secret of Passepartout's involvement in the robbery is revealed, as are romantic feelings between Fogg and Monique. However, Kelvin has dispatched agents to stop Fogg, making their travels even more challenging.--Submitted by Anonymous. This great book of adventure is about a man named Phileas Fogg, who takes a wager to go around the world in no more then 80 days. He risks his entire fortune on this bet So he and his French valet Jean Passepartout make a tremendous journey Around The World In Eighty Days.--Submitted by Phileas Fogg. Around the World in 80 days was written during a time of war between France and Prussia. The story centers around an eccentric English gentleman and his French servant, Passepartout. The English gentleman, Mr. Phileas Fogg, enters into a wager whereby he will circumnavigate the globe and return to his starting point exactly 80 days from the starting date. The wager was between Mr. Fogg and friends in the Reform Club, an organization of wealthy men. This voyage would not have been possible earlier than the 1870s as the innovations such as railroad travel and steam engines would have made this time frame impossible. Mr. Phileas Fogg was nothing if not methodical. He diligently planned the entire journey including rail time tables and financial budgeting. The travelers had many adventures along the way. The team had to deal with bank robberies and travel on the backs of elephants. In India, they combated savages that were about to sacrifice a woman. The travelers saved the woman and escaped with their lives. In the United States, the adventures battled native American Indians that attacked their train. Passepartout was captured by the Indians during the fight and Mr. Fogg was forced to delay his travels and give chase to the Indians with a troop of US cavalry at his side. The chase was successful in saving Passepartout, but resulted in Mr. Fogg losing valuable time in his journey. He was now likely to lose his wager. Even though Mr. Fogg and company were now significantly behind schedule, he was not going to give up. The group desperately tried to move very quickly and slowly, but surely, he made up lost time. After 81 days had passed, the travelers entered London. Mr. Fogg believed that he had lost the wager. As methodical and organized as Mr. Fogg was, he did not take into account the fact that by traveling Eastward, he would actually gain an additional day. While Mr. Fogg and Passepartout actually slept 81 times, only 80 days on the calendar in London had passed. Mr. Fogg had won his wager. This work by Jules Verne is one of his classics. It has been made into several movies, including the 1956 version by the same name. That version starred David Niven as Phileas Fogg and Mario Moreno as Passepartout. The 2004 version of 80 days starred Jackie Chan as Passepartout and Stephen Coogan as Mr. Fogg. All in all, this work is a very easy read and an exciting adventure story. Although this is somewhat different than other works by Verne (many of his other works were early science fiction), it is easily one of the classics of the time.--Submitted by Anonymous. The story begins at England. We are introduced to Fogg, a very precise man who regularly goes to the Reform Club every evening. At one such visit to the club to play cards, he gets into a conversation with his fellow card players as to whether it is possible to go around the world in eighty days. He believes that it is and is challenged to complete the adventure. This is the beginning of the entire plot and from then on we see how Fogg goes around the world and we witness the amazing adventures that he has with his companions. The main plot is based on Foggs travels, while other such plots merely support the central theme Fix, the detective follows Fogg all over. He believes that Fogg is the bank robber who has robbed a great sum from the bank of England. He puts obstacles in Foggs path just so that he can arrest him whenever he gets the warrant from England. The suspicion that Fogg might be a clever gentleman robber is the sub-theme of the book and the author makes the reader also suspicious. Passepartout too wonders whether his master might be a robber though in his heart he has ample trust in Foggs integrity. The plot moves ahead with Fogg striving through various obstacles to reach London in time. He goes through Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Hong Kong, Yokohama, San Francisco, New York and finally Liverpool. Fix arrests Fogg at Liverpool and this delays our hero. He thinks that he has missed the deadline and hasn't reached London in time when in reality he reached a full day earlier. Thus Fogg wins the wager and in the course of his travels, finds himself a worthy charming, beautiful wife too.--Submitted by ifda.
Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise: to circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne’s hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.

Extrait : "« Sire, une nouvelle dépêche. – D'où vient-elle ? – De Tomsk. – Le fil est coupé au-delà de cette ville? Il est coupé depuis hier. – D'heure en heure, général, fais passer un télégramme à Tomsk, et que l'on le tienne au courant. – Oui, sire, » répondit le général Kissoff.

Jules Verne’s classic 1864 sci-fi novel tells the story of German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snaefellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.
Journey has been read by millions of inquisitive minds and has influenced some of the worlds most famous explorers such as Admiral Byrd, who announced on his 1926 expedition to the North Pole that "it is Jules Verne who is bringing me."
Renowned cave explorer Norbert Casteret said in 1938 that A Journey to the Center of the Earth was a "marvelous book which impressed and fascinated me more than any other. I have re-read it many times, and I confess I sometimes re-read it still, each time finding anew the joys and enthusiasm of my childhood."
First published in 1869 Translated by F.P. Walter in 1873. This story is about the adventures of Captain Nemo and his crew aboard the submarine, Nautilus. One day ships start sinking, particularly ones dealing with war. Survivors think it is a big whale. A harpoon ship goes out to kill it, but finds out that the whale is actually the Nautilus. The most interesting part of this book was probably the Nautilus itself. It is shaped to look like a fish, with a large metal fin on top used to ram and sink the ships. The camouflage of the boat being shaped like a whale works, up until the part where the Nautilus takes on a few passengers from one of the sinking ships. Another intriguing part of this book was Captain Nemo. He is the kind of character that you neither like nor dislike. I say this, because of some of Nemo抯 actions. Captain Nemo hates war, and throughout the book, he uses his submarine to destroy all kinds of war related ships. You would like him for trying to put an end to war, but dislike his method (destroying ships and killing innocent lives). This is the story of an Underwater Tour of the World and is a classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870. It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus, as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax after he, his servant Conseil, and Canadian whaler Ned Land wash up on their ship. On the Nautilus, the three embark on a journey which has them going all around the world. The novel was originally serialized from March 1869 through June 1870 in Pierre-Jules Hetzel's periodical, the Magasin d捝ducation et de R闰r閍tion. The deluxe illustrated edition, published by Hetzel in November 1871, included 111 illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and 蒬ouard Riou. The book was highly acclaimed when released and still is now; it is regarded as one of the premiere adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The description of Nemo's ship, the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines, which at the time were very primitive vessels. Thus, the book has been able to age well because of its scientific theories, unlike some other of Verne's works, like Journey to the Center of the Earth, which are not scientifically accurate and serve more simply as adventure novels.--Submitted by Sana.
