Jules Verne EBooks


(Edits mine.)

Jules Gabriel Verne (b. 8 Feb 1828 - d. 24 Mar 1905)
A French author who pioneered the science fiction genre.
He is best known for:
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870)
A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864)
Around the World in Eighty Days (1873)

Dug up the epub ebooks from mobileread forum. Sometimes those are formatted better.

Verne, Jules:
Five Weeks In A Balloon
A Journey to the Interior of the Earth
See also:
Comic Book Journey to the Center of the Earth

The Mysterious Island
MobileRead Note: A loose sequel to "20,000 Leagues Under the Seas", "The Mysterious Island" tells the story of 5 men who crash-land on an uninhabited Pacific island after their balloon is caught in a hurricane. Starting with almost no resources, the book tells how they build "civilisation" from nothing. But the island has a mysterious secret...This is one of my favourite Verne novels.

An Antarctic Mystery
Around the World in 80 Days
The Adventures of a Special Correspondent
20,000 Leagues Under the Seas
The Moon Voyage
MobileRead Note: Verne's two classic books "From the Earth to the Moon" and its sequel, "Around the Moon", in a single volume.

The Blockade Runners

In Search of the Castaways

(Illustrations, Edits mine.)

My Note: This is the one I was particularly interested in.
MobileRead Note: A chance discovery of a partially illegible message in a bottle found in a shark's stomach leads to a search for shipwrecked sailors across South America, Australia, and New Zealand (the message specified the latitude, but not the longitude of the shipwreck) with numerous adventures en-route. Basically, it's a travelogue with adventures thrown in.
The characters in this book were very popular, and Verne re-introduced them in "The Mysterious Island", which is itself a sequel to "20,000 Leagues Under the Seas", so ideally this book should be read in between "20,000 Leagues Under the Seas" and "The Mysterious Island".
