The immense curtain of vapour, spread over the distant perimeter of the southern horizon resembled a boundless cataract falling noiselessly from the height of some huge rampart lost in the height of the heavens.

Twelve days later, it was darkness that hung over these waters, darkness furrowed by luminous streaks darting from the milky depths of the Antarctic Ocean, while the incessant shower of ash-dust fell and melted in its waters.

The boat approached the cataract with an impetuous velocity whose cause is not explained in the narrative of Arthur Pym. In the midst of this frightful darkness a flock of gigantic birds, of livid white plumage, swept by, uttering their eternal tékéli-li, and then the savage, in the supreme throes of terror, gave up the ghost.

Yet another science-fiction novel by Jules Verne that I had read this year. And what can I say that I really enjoy his books. You feel, like Jules Verne is real scientist and a great traveler.. Was surprised by his knowledge of sailing (I’m also in to sailing, and all this terms, that he uses, like

This is the first Jules Verne novel I have read and I enjoyed it. The reason I read this book is because it is the "sequel" to Edgar A Poe's "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym". If you have read that novel, you realize that Poe left off rather abruptly and did not finish his narrative. I'm not sure

An Antarctic Mystery by Jules Verne is basically a sort of sequel of and a love letter to Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. The reason for Verne writing a sequel to the Poe story is because the original story had an open ending. And Verne wanted to give the adventure

This is an unofficial sequel to Edgar Allan Poe's only novel, 1838's "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket". Jules Verne the real inventor of sci-fi was a great admirer of the American writer. Mr.Jeorling is an geological researcher (mineralogist), and believes that book was factual! A li

Belki biraz garip, bu hayatım boyunca okuduğum ikinci Jules Verne kitabıydı (İlki İskoçya Seyahati). Klasiklerin için herkesin okudum deyip kimsenin okumadığı kitaplar oldukları sıkça söylenir. Ya da Calvino’nun deyişiyle kimsenin okuyorum demeyip tekrar okuyorum dediği kitaplar okudukları. Dünya üz
