Complete Works of Jules Verne – Jules Verne

I do keep dipping into this and reading a story occasionally, but find it quite disturbing at times due to the racism so can only manage about 1 story a year at most.   The view of Europeans back then towards Africa and its people was appalling, to put it mildly.

But it was what it was, and Jules is worth reading if you can get your head around the historical prejudices of his day.   Where would steampunk be if not for writers like Jules Verne?   And that’s who i would certainly recommend this to, anyone who has any love of ‘Steampunk’ should go back and read some of the earliest books of the genre, long before the genre even existed.   Also good stuff for ‘Vic Lit’ fans too.
