Book Excerpt: 
. . .And Lina pointed to a liana of the "cipos" kind, twisted round a gigantic sensitive mimosa, whose leaves, light as feathers, shut up at the least disturbance.

"Well?" said Benito.

"I proposed," replied Minha, "that we try to follow that liana to its very end."

"It is an idea, and it is an object!" observed Benito, "to follow this liana, no matter what may be the obstacles, thickets, underwood, rocks, brooks, torrents, to let nothing stop us, not even——"

"Certainly, you are right, brother!" said Minha; "Lina is a trifle absurd."

"Come on, then!" replied her brother; "you say that Lina is absurd so as to say that Benito is absurd to approve of it!"

"Well, both of you are absurd, if that will amuse you," returned Minha. "Let us follow the liana!"

"You are not afraid?" said Manoel.

"Still objections!" shouted Benito.

"Ah, Manoel! you would not speak like that if y. . . Read More

Here is a most interesting Jules Verne tale. Unlike his usual science fiction novels, Eight hundred leagues actually tells the tale of an Amazon River trip, and most is quite descriptive as regards the surroundings, people, places, vegetation, wildlife, etc. It's quite a tale to follow, from the...more

More of a travelogue than a story, although it does have an engaging plot, Verne's 800 Leagues on the Amazon follows a family's descent by enormous log raft down almost the full length of the mighty Amazon River, from Peru to the Atlantic coast in Brazil, as they make their way to the last town o...more

I enjoyed this book more than I expected. It's not the best Jules Verne story, but is written in his classic scientific style. A fascinating journey about the Amazon and the Brazilian frontier in a fascinating time. The story is simple, but well-suited for the setting. If you like Verne, give thi...more

Bu kitap elimde aylarca süründü. Sebep biraz cep boy olmasından kaynaklanıyor. Cep boy olunca elde tutmak zor oluyor. Kitap güzel basılmış sayfalar kopmuyor ama kitabı okuyacağım derken ellerim ağrıdı resmen. E tabii okuma keyfim de sekteye uğradı dolayısıyla. Neyse... Kitap Jangada isimli gemini...more

Nav ko slēpt, bet bērna gados šis autors man bija pats, pats labākais. Kā gan var nepatikt Žils Verns, ja visos garajos skolas brīvlaikos mēs ar TV starpniecību tikām iepriecināti ar “Kapteiņa Granta bērniem”. Verna grāmatas bibliotēkās arī vienmēr bija paņemtas, un tieši tādēļ šo grāmatu man izd...more

A Jules Verne adventure and mystery traveling down the Amazon on a huge raft. Not as exciting or involved as "The Mysterious Island" butt involves the Amazon and takes place in the nineteenth century, thus it was of interest to me. Interesting natural history "facts".

'800 Leagues on the Amazon' is an amazing story of adventure, honor, loyalty and exotic travel shrouded in great mystery. This is not the typical Jules Verne science fiction but it is a rollicking ride full of suspense and thrill on a log raft down almost the full length of the mighty Amazon Rive...more
