Jules Verne is a master of pure narrative

Jules Verne is a master of pure narrative. The very simplicity of Jules Verne's French presents difficulties to one who would translate it into English. The Swiss Family Robinson" seems to have affected Jules Verne's literary bent as no other book ever did. It gave him that liking for the lonely island life as the basis of a yarn which is conspicuous in much of his work.

I turn and find myself face to face with the Count d'Artigas, who is accompanied by Captain Spade. He glances at me sharply, and in a burst of irritation that I cannot suppress, I exclaim: "You are keeping me here, sir, against all right

I turn and find myself face to face with the Count d'Artigas, who is accompanied by Captain Spade. He glances at me sharply, and in a burst of irritation that I cannot suppress, I exclaim: "You are keeping me here, sir, against all right. If it was to wait upon Thomas Roch that you carried me off from Healthful House, I refuse to attend to him, and insist upon being sent back. The pirate chief makes a gesture, but does not reply. Then my temper gets the better of me altogether.

Facing the Flag book. The Jules Verne's books are simply not for me. Even though I can appreciate how adventurous, forward-thinking and just brilliant some of them are, Verne's way of storytelling simply doesn't entertain me.

Like The Begum's Millions, which Verne published in 1879, it has the theme of France and the entire world threatened by a super-weapon (what would now be called a weapon of mass destruction) with the threat finally overcome through the force of French patriotism. This is a Librivox recording.

This was a book that I had never heard of, by Jules Verne, and I was interested to see if it would be as skilfully written as Mysterious Island and ...Leagues under the Sea. The story is narrated by Engineer Simon Hart who, at the start of the book, is known as someone else and is fast paced and full of technical details of amazing discovery, which holds the interest right up to the very end. I'm very glad Amazon kindle added this 'classic' to their list. A worthwhile read.

I have been reading all the novels available free written by Jules Verne, in order of publication. Facing the Flag is not up to the quality of his earlier works. The story is not as well developed as "20,00 Leagues Under the Sea" or "Mysterious Island" other stories where he used submarines. It felt like a short story that had been stretched to fill more space.

Being new at ebooks I downloaded this book and it was easy to copy to my reader,
Jules Verns is a great spy phy writer. Even though his writting were in the800.s.
He was ahead of his time.
Gralmeena
He should stick to SciFi. I didn't care for this story at all. It's too classroom. Not my cup of tea at all
Kulasius
Amazing how well he captures a possible future from the times he lived in.

Imagine Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea meets Treasure Island... Not a bad read, but not brilliant either. Not very original territory.

Terribly dated of course. I would not have read this except it was by Vern and I had not read it before.
Jules Verne was an excellent writer despite being known for several sucessful novels: 20,000 league under the sea, journey to the center of the earth, etc. This is well worth reading. The price is right.
