The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived." Arthur C. Clarke</DIV> --aaaa
<DIV></DIV><DIV>"Verne has left us an extraordinary book. . . . It has brought delight to generations of readers, and will for many more. There is nothing so rare as the chance to take an impossible journey, and to believe it so powerfully that we wonder if we will make it out alive. That's magic. And that's Verne's gift." Michael Crichton</DIV> --aaa

It's only just now starting to hit me just how much this kind of phoned-in nonsense is flooding the paperback market here in the internet era. When I opened this 'edition,' if it can even be called that, I realized that I'd received my first version of something a number of my friends have already experienced: a completely careless, cut-and-pasted, no-pagination-having pile of lazy nonsense. No chapter breaks. All paragraphs block formatted with no extra spacing, even dialogue. No attention paid whatsoever to any other formatting, and it's clear that the sourced text wasn't proofread.
If you're getting ready to buy this copy, I cannot more strongly suggest that you either buy a digital version (which, ridiculously, would still be preferable to someone who prefers books) or find one from an established publisher with a reputation to uphold. I wouldn't be surprised if the publisher(s) of this book didn't look at the text at all or if they were just pumping out trash editions for fast cash from a basement somewhere.
In, short, it's disgraceful for Amazon to sell this edition and to allow it to be recommended or listed as a priority for those looking for print editions. I imagine it's going to be our duty as consumers to do our best not to support this kind of careless charlatanism. DO NOT BUY THIS.
Otherwise, this tale has many elements of a great story; a fantastic premise, understandable characters, an incredible journey, moments of tension and danger, all while remaining largely within the realm of possibility. Largely. ;-)
Any seeking to argue against the work must contend with arguments levied by the author himself. "‘No more; that is sufficient. When science has uttered her voice, let babblers hold their peace.’"
