STORY BY -Jules-Verne

Intorno alla Luna

Intorno alla Luna

20 Reads

“Intorno alla Luna” è un romanzo scritto da Jules Verne nel 1870, che narra le vicende successive a quelle accadute nel precedente “Dalla Terra alla Luna”. Entrambe sono considerate tra le più famose opere precorritrici della moderna fantascienza. Un romanzo ricco di suspense e di ironia. Il presidente Barbicane, il capitano Nicholl e l’avventuriero francese Michel Ardan ci sono riusciti! I tre intrepidi viaggiatori sono partiti per il viaggio più importante della storia. La monumentale Columbiad ha sparato il proiettile dentro cui si trovano e li ha spinti fin nello spazio. La destinazione è una sola: l’astro delle notti, la Luna. Sulla Terra, però, sono tutti in ansia perché qualcosa sembra non essere andato secondo i piani e gli amici rimasti coi piedi ben piantati a terra non possono fare altro che sperare. Ma cosa sta succedendo in realtà all’interno del proiettile-navicella? Qual è la sorte che attende i tre ardimentosi? L’ossigeno che producono chimicamente sarà sufficiente? Riusciranno davvero a sbarcare sulla Luna?

This volume presents the complete works of Jules Vernes (47 novels.) Jules Gabriel Verne (1828 – 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright. Verne"s collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages extraordinaires, a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne is generally considered a major literary author in France and most of Europe, where he has had a wide influence on the literary avant-garde and on surrealism. Verne has been the second most-translated author in the world since 1979, ranking between Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare. He has sometimes been called the "Father of Science Fiction", a title that has also been given to H. G. Wells, Mary Shelley, and Hugo Gernsback.

Literature. Jules Verne"s Around the World in Eighty Days is a rip-roaring adventure story set primarily in Victorian England but spans the world following its protagonist Phileas Fogg. Written with a cosmopolitan and open view of the world, Around the World in Eighty Days is a brilliant tale.

Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne. Phileas Fogg is a very ordinary gentleman living in nineteenth century England. He walks every day to the Reform Club, eats his meals at precisely the same time, in the same place. Though respected among his small circle of associates, he is viewed as a little peculiar. Jean Passepartout thinks this is just what he is looking for. Wanting to settle down into a very domestic mundane English life, he hires himself to Mr. Fogg as his valet, expecting nothing more than regular hours. But when Phileas Fogg makes a bet with his friends at the Reform Club, his routine life is suddenly turned on its head as he runs a race with time to make a trip around the world in eighty days. Adventure, misfortune and the totally unexpected meet Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout in this tale, Around the World in Eighty Days, making for a story that has endured for over a century as one of the greatest classics of all time.
