Finished 20k leagues under the sea and went to find another by Verne but don't have one in this big collection.
But I found some Mark Twain classics and read some comments about him in the additional literature put into the Verne stories. Twain was highly reguarded after his "Innocents abroad" novel and my wife just happened to have it along with a couple other Twain novels. I started the "Innocents abroad" book and it sure reads alot slower than the Verne's books because the words are smaller on each page. Still, I'm touring the world on top of the water and going onto land at alot of ports. Going on land where the "Nautilus" only passed is quite the perfect book to follow the "20K leagues..." tale.
The two authors even write very similar and it's like the same narator is telling the new story now. Very cool.
This book has funny moments written into it also. Just like the former two by Verne.
I do want to read "To the moon and back" by Verne this year or next and also "The Time Machine" and the recommended H.G.Wells books.
