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.

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.

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.

Jules Verne was an excellent writer despite being known for several sucessful novels: 20,000 league under the sea, journey to the center of the earth, etc. This is well worth reading. The price is right.

Being new at ebooks I downloaded this book and it was easy to copy to my reader,
Jules Verns is a great spy phy writer. Even though his writting were in the800.s.
He was ahead of his time.
