About the Author

Jules G. Verne was born in Nantes, the former capital of Brittany, France. Verne went to Paris to study law but began writing stories and working in theatre as well. When Verne's father discovered that his son was writing rather than studying law, he promptly withdrew his financial support. His wife then encouraged him to pursue his writing, and he became acquainted with Pierre-Jules Hetzel, an important French publisher. Hetzel also helped improve Verne's writings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have been reading all the novels available free written by Jules Verne, in order of publication. Facing the Flag is not up to the quality of his earlier works. The story is not as well developed as "20,00 Leagues Under the Sea" or "Mysterious Island" other stories where he used submarines. It felt like a short story that had been stretched to fill more space.

Imagine Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea meets Treasure Island... Not a bad read, but not brilliant either. Not very original territory.

This was a book that I had never heard of, by Jules Verne, and I was interested to see if it would be as skilfully written as Mysterious Island and ...Leagues under the Sea. The story is narrated by Engineer Simon Hart who, at the start of the book, is known as someone else and is fast paced and full of technical details of amazing discovery, which holds the interest right up to the very end. I'm very glad Amazon kindle added this 'classic' to their list. A worthwhile read.

He should stick to SciFi. I didn't care for this story at all. It's too classroom. Not my cup of tea at all
