As young men, Jules Verne and Andre Nemo pledged to experience a world of adventures together but fate set them on two different paths. Nemo becomes an adventurer, traveling to fantastic places and encountering hidden civilizations and mythical creatures, while Verne builds a reputation chronicling his friend's exploits. The author of Dune: House Corrino (with Brian Herbert) pays tribute to one of the genre's founding fathers in a fast-paced sf fantasy reminiscent of the early pulp stories. Romance, adventure, and a new look at Verne's classic novels make this a strong addition to most sf collections.

Fans of classic science fiction will enjoy this homage to Jules Verne.
Andre Nemo becomes a great adventurer, travelling the globe (and beyond), a man's man whose incredible experiences are recorded by his stay-at-home friend Verne.
All other characters are rather one-sided and used and then tossed aside with very little emotional attachment from the characters.

a very neat premise that is so mundane, it barely warranted 3 stars. Could have been great, but is so-so at best.Published 14 months ago by Mr. Scott A. Webb

I liked the adventures and the overall concept of imagining how the two become who they are. However, every main character was an extreme it seemed. Read morePublished 15 months ago by J. Parent

Not my cup of tea at all. If I could edit out about half of the book. The nonsense sections where the impossible happens, then it might be ok.Published 19 months ago by Johannes
