Kurzbeschreibung

This Halcyon Classics ebook collection contains 36 of Jules Verne's best known works. Verne (1828-1905) was a French writer who, along with English author H.G. Wells, is regarded as the "Father of Science Fiction." He is best known for his novels A JOURNEY TO THE CENTRE OF THE EARTH (1864), FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON (1865), 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA (1869–1870), A JOURNEY TO THE CENTER OF THE EARTH (1871) AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS (1873) and THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND (1875). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. A number of his works have been made into feature films and his books remain popular and in print more than a century after his death.

This ebook is DRM free and includes an active table of contents for easy navigation.

Muss man zu Jules Verne noch viel sagen? Nein. Das ist einfach ein Klassiker! Vieles ist davon schon Wirklichkeit geworden - der Mann war seine Zeit 100 Jahre voraus.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Outstanding deal 31. Mai 2010
Von Terry Hutt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I couldn't believe it when I bought 36 works by Jules Verne for a few dollars for my iPod. I thought I'd be lucky if I got some poorly scanned and OCRed stuff but this is top quality! I'm maybe half way through the first book (20,000 leagues...) and there are no OCR errors.

Then I found out I can read these books on my PC too and it auto-syncs with my iPod. I really love this Kindle app, so much that I'm thinking about getting a Kindle.

Simply fantastic if you like classic science-ficton as I do.

P.S. I recommend having Google Earth running as you read 20,000 leagues under the sea - it's really cool to type the coordinates in and see where the author is taking you. You enter coordinates in the form dd mm'ss" N/S, dd mm'ss" E/W. Remember that Jules Verne is using a Paris meridian which is 2 degrees 21' East of Greenwich.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An incredible read for all ages 10. September 2010
Von Joao Horta - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have known about the author, Jules Verne, and read his books since I was about 10 years old. Due to life's uncertainties, I lost the small collection I had. Now, nearly 30 years later, with my Kindle in hand, I did not hesitate to buy this collection of 36 books (although his collected works have more than 70) and for the price it had. I really recommend it, go for it!

For me, Jules Verne, is one of the greatest authors of all time. His stories are timeless, they are as fresh today as they were the day they were written. They can be catalogued as science fiction, adventure or plain fiction, it doesn't matter, the stories can be read by anyone, of any age, with interest.

If you want to find stories for your children which are both interesting and educational, this is one of the authors to choose. If, on the other hand, you want a story for yourself, which is imaginative, fast tracking, this is also an author for you.

I hope that they will complete the collection!

Note: this collection does have a "Table of Contents", you just have to access it through the cover page.

The contents page is on the cover. You won't have to vainly search for the start of each book. With that out of the way, why havn't you bought this one yet?

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very good, but not best, Verne collection. 15. Februar 2012
Von Librarian - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Of all the Jules Verne ebook compilations containing 30+ titles currently available in the Kindle store, this Halcyon Press edition is pretty good. An active TOC pinpoints specific content. I am particularly happy to see a full and modern translation of "20,000 Leagues" by F.P.Walter (though he is not credited and his informative, introductory essay is not included). I'm also glad to see a true ("Professor Lidenbrock") translation of "Journey to the Interior of the Earth" rather than the sadly all-too-common bogus ("Professor Hardwigg") version often passed off as being by Verne. The other major works are translated reasonably well keeping in mind that these are older, public domain versions. I do, however, prefer a slightly different public domain version of "From the Earth to the Moon" and "Dick Sand," but that's a mere quibble.

I have two more quibbles. FIRST is that several times a graphic will not be included but the words "graphic appears here" will appear instead. SECOND is that italics are often represented by an underline before and after the emphasized word(s), __like this___, a confusing annoyance when the names of several ships (normally italicized) are being referred to. These are not deal-breakers but something you may wish to consider (and because of them I have subtracted one star). The formatting is otherwise okay.

As to containing 36 works, the count is inflated a tad by counting the two parts of "Captain Hatteras" as separate entities and unnecessarily including (and counting) a duplicate portion of "Mysterious Island." You really get 34 distinct tales (not 36)--but that is still a lot of Verne, though it is by no means complete. That honor goes to Delphi.

Delphi has a truly complete set, though a dozen works (not yet cheaply available in public domain translations) appear in French for the sake of completeness. Since I am not fluent in that language, I do not fully appreciate their inclusion. I do, however, greatly appreciate the inclusion of about 20 (!) more titles--in English--than this Halcyon (or any other) set. This makes the Delphi edition the largest and most appealing to me (even though the aforementioned modern translation by F.P. Walter is not used in it).

I would encourage you to search, sample, and compare because new Verne collections keep popping up all the time in the Kindle Store. Check to see which titles are included, if the main TOC is active and takes you to additional active TOCs (one for each book), and that the text is formatted to your liking. See if graphics and illustrations are included. The one you ultimately select will depend upon the level of your interest in, and the degree of your enthusiasm for, the writings of Jules Verne. If you want a substantial collection which includes the well-known great Verne classics, this Halcyon set (or a recent, $.99 one from e-artnow, which is worth examining) should be quite fine. But if you want even MORE (as in EVERYTHING), the very BEST is that all-inclusive Delphi set.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Classic Jules Vern 14. März 2011
Von Bittek106 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is the most complete collection of Jules Vern I have ever seen. And yes there is a Table of contents. It is on the cover page. Just cursor down to the book you want to read and click it. Just that simple. No errors, this is not a cheap OCR rip. You absolutely cannot beat it for the price. I am using a Kindle 3.

The sea doesn't belong to tyrants. On its surface they can still exercise their iniquitous claims, battle each other, devour each other, haul every earthly horror. But thirty feet below sea level, their dominion ceases, their influence fades, their power vanishes! Ah, sir, live! Live in the heart of the seas! Here alone lies independence! Here I recognize no superiors! Here I'm free!" &quote;
