"The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides. The sea is only the embodiment of a supernatural and wonderful existence. It is nothing but love and emotion; it is the Living Infinite." (Jules Verne, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)

A science-fiction buff, I always love a good story that captures my attention with adventure, mystery, unexplored worlds, heart pounding experiences and uncertain endings. This collection of stories gave me all of that and some. Although they were all written during a time to which I cannot relate, I was captivated by the detail in the storytelling. I could feel myself travel beneath the sea. My heart raced as the characters encountered prehistoric monsters. I was enthralled as each of the characters faced a new adventure, pushing my own imagination to the limits.
I truly loved listening to this collection of stories and will look for more collections like it that will grab my attention and stir my emotions.
For anyone looking for adventure, The Jules Verne Collection will carry you away from the reality that plagues you today to a world that is as complex as it is simple. Adventure awaits you!
