Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist who mostly wrote adventure fiction inspired by the scientific advances of the 19th century. With the help of editor Pierre-Jules Hetzel, he wrote a series of books called ”Extraordinary Travels”, which includes ”Journey to the Center of the Earth” (1864), ”Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” (1870), and ”Around the World in Eighty Days” (1873). Widely popular with both children and adults, Verne is one of the most translated authors of all times, and still inspires people the world over today.
