Read online A Floating City (Extraordinary Voyages #8).pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC A Floating City (Extraordinary Voyages #8) A Floating City published in enjoyed a popularity almost equal to that of Round the World in Eighty Days The Floating City was the direct result of the trip which the author actually made to America in on the largest iron ship ever built He gives us a faithful picture of the natural and usual incidents of an ocean voyage of those days enlivening these by introducing a romance aboard ship The pictures of the Great Eastern are of course exaggerated not so much in words themselves as in the impressions they convey But the pictures of New York and of Niagara are the genuine imprint made upon the great writer by his visit by Jules Verne

No description available, Verne s tale of a trip to the moon is as you d expect from Verne great fun even if bits of it now seem in retrospect a little strange Our rocket ship gets shot out of a cannon To the moon Goodness But in other ways it s full of eerie bits of business that turned out to be very near reality he had the cost when you adjust for inflation almost exactly right There are other similarities too Verne s cannon was named the Columbiad the Apollo command module was named Columbia Apollo had a three person crew just as Verne s did and both blasted off from the American state of Florida Even the return to earth happened in more or less the same place Coincidence or fact We say you ll have to read this story yourself to judge, The intrepid Professor Liedenbrock embarks upon the strangest expedition of the nineteenth century a journey down an extinct Icelandic volcano to the Earth s very core In his quest to penetrate the planet s primordial secrets the geologist together with his quaking nephew Axel and their devoted guide Hans discovers an astonishing subterranean menagerie of prehistoric proportions Verne s imaginative tale is at once the ultimate science fiction adventure and a reflection on the perfectibility of human understanding and the psychology of the questor, No description available
