Présentation de l'éditeur

An Antarctic Mystery is a novel by Jules Verne and is a response to Edgar Allan Poe's novel The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket. It follows the adventures of the narrator and his journey from the Kerguelen Islands aboard Halbrane. The narrator is a wealthy American Jeorling, who has entertained himself with private studies of the wildlife on the Kerguelen Islands and is now looking for a passage back to the USA. Halbrane is one of the first ships to arrive at Kerguelen, and its captain Len Guy somewhat reluctantly agrees to have Jeorling as a passenger as far as Tristan da Cunha. Underway, they meet a stray iceberg with a dead body on it, which turns out to be a sailor from Jane. Guy, who had talked to Jeorling earlier about the subject of Pym, reveals himself to be the brother of William Guy. He decides to try to come to the rescue of Jane's crew. They also take aboard another mysterious sailor named Hunt who is eager to join the search for undisclosed reasons.

Book Description

I think there is some need for doubt," I answered "the singular character of the hero of those adventures being taken into consideration--at least concerning the phenomena of the island of Tsalal. And we know that Arthur Pym was mistaken in asserting that Captain William Guy and several of his companions perished in the landslip of the hill at Klock-Klock.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book - too many errors 24 mai 2007

Format:Broché
The number of misspelled and missing words in this book make it very hard to read at times.

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and will try to find a better copy.

This is one of Jules Verne's lesser known works. The novel supposes that Edgar A. Poe's "The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym" was a true story. In "An Antarctic Mystery" a ship is searching for survivors of Pym's voyage. There was one problem with the Kindle version: "Quotation marks" were replaced with ???three question marks??? at each end of a quotation. This is a bit distracting. Other than that I liked the book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Issues with digitizing. 7 mars 2011

When they digitized this book, the double quotation marks ("), apostrophes ('), ellipses (...), and degree symbols (°) were all replaced by one or more question marks. As a result, it was sometime difficult to read. Moreover, there are numerous optical character recognition (OCR) errors that were introduced during the digitizing process. These seem to get more numerous the further you get into the book. But the story is great and the price can't be beat.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A rediscovery of great writing 28 avril 2013
Par Linda S. Burson - Publié sur Amazon.com

I had never read this Verne story, but just had to pick it up after reading Poe's Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket, which I had never read either. I had seen the Narrative & the Mystery referred to in something else I read recently - Map of the Sky, I think, and learned of the connection between the two novels. Anyway, I rediscovered why I have always loved both writers, having read other tales and stories and poems by them. Beautiful use of the English language, and no dumbing-down here.

Read both - Poe's Narrative first, then Verne's Mystery. They connect - I didn't know that, despite being an English teacher. Two great adventure stories about the South Pole and about the character of men. A thank you to the author of Map of the Sky - de Palma(?)!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Imagine being left alone in the Antarctic... 15 septembre 2009
Par Christine Richardson - Publié sur Amazon.com
One of the most interesting books ever written - think about it, Edgar Allen Poe, writes a book, and hes books are strange enough, but Verne, brilliant and who's books went from adventure, mystery, space travel, inner earth travel, inventions, like the submarine, megalomaniacs like Nemo, scientific experiments gone wild, and here he is writing a sequel to Poe's book.

I wont reveal the ending, as is an unwritten rule with this book, but its amazing. Imagine being left alone in the Antarctic?

And don't worry about reading Poe's book, I never did, and it made no difference.

Enjoy An Antarctic Mystery.
