All by Jules Verne
The Voyages Extraordinaires is a sequence of fifty-four novels by Jules Verne. The goal of the Voyages was to outline the geographical, geological, physical, and astronomical knowledge amassed by science and to recount, in an entertaining format. Verne's attention to detail coupled with his sense of wonder form the backbone of the Voyages.
In Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea we travel in the submarine Nautilus. The crew cut off any relationship with the nations and with humanity. They live only on what the sea gives them - food, the raw material they need for the production of electricity.
Around the World in Eighty Days tells the journey of an aristocrate and his employee who, motivated by a bet, try to go around the world with limited time and resources. It was the most popular of Verne's Voyages extraordinaires series of novels.
From the Earth to the Moon tells the story of attempts to catapult a manned projectile onto the Moon. It is curious that some of Verne's calculations, in spite of the lack of empirical data, are quite accurate.
