Book Description

Jules Verne (1828-1905) is best known for his science fiction stories, at the time called "tales of imagination", even though he also wrote several historical novels.

As one of the first science fiction writers, his novels show the basics of good science fiction - good plot, good characterization, sound science, and good projections of scientific trends.

His ability to project the future of science was remarkable. Among his projections were the modern submarine, television, guided missles, satellites, and the airplane. His accuracy was not only in the invention but in the uses to which they were put.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Flawed Gem, Nearly Unknown But Worth The Read 6 avril 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I became interested in Off On A Comet through the old Classics Comics version, and I was able to track it down once in the late 1970's; this book is exceedingly rare. It concerns the travels of a French foreign legionnaire, his sidekick, and various others carried off on a comet which sideswipes the earth in the 1800's. This "comet" is a small, planetiod-like world with atmosphere, land, and ocean. The journey is utterly unbelievable in the light of present knowledge, but Verne is as scientifically correct relative to the knowledge of his day as he could be. Before the travelers are redeposited on the earth in another grazing collision, the comet's eccentric orbit carries them near Venus and Mars, causing them to suffer through terrible extremes of climate. Verne delights in the ability of human ingenuity to overdome obstacles, conflicts, and deprivation as they explore and edure their temporary home. The flights of imagination involved are remarkable and the characterizations are good. I was, however, surprised at the vicious anti-Semitism evident in the characters and the narrative. This will be an enormous problem for many readers, and is a major flaw in an otherwise superb work

2.0 étoiles sur 5 You need to first read part one, "To the Sun?" 12 novembre 1997
Par Dirk Nomad - Publié sur Amazon.com
As with another reviewer, nostalgic recollection of the great Classics Illustrated Comic version of Off on a Comet prompted me to get the original from the library. Alas, Off on a Comet begins at a point near the end of the Classics Comics plot. Turns out all the good parts are in part one of Hector Servadac, called To the Sun. The library found me a volume called "The Space Novels of Jules Verne" (Dover publications, 1960) which contains both To the Sun? and Off on a Comet. Sometimes these are called Hector Servadac: Part One and Hector Servadac: Part Two, respectively.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Space Travel over a century ago! 21 novembre 2012

I really like reading the classics. They are called classics for a reason. I especially enjoy authors like Jules Verne, who had quite an imagination! One thing that is fun to do is compare his imaginative ideas with what we know today. For instance, this book is about traveling through our solar system on a comet. Of course we know much more about the solar system today, but it is fun to see how much more we know compared to a century ago. However, this book got pretty technical at times, talking about planet distances from the sun, time it would take to travel those distances in space, figuring out mass, diameter, etc. of the comet, all in great detail, and much of it was tedious and wrong. Having said that, I still enjoy how he writes. His characters have quite an adventure, and it was fun to go along for the ride!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 An Unknown Masterpiece 25 avril 1997
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I came accross this book not in its orginal format but thru a translation in 'MARATHI' (An Indian Language) by 'Bha. RA. BHAGWAT'. This too some 20 years back. Since then I am trying to find a copy.

Its a story of a group of people who hitch a ride on a comet and go accross the planetory system , and in due course return back to earth.

Although, it may sound quite out of date now , there is some sceintefic basis to many of the trick used by these people.

Verne also dwels upon behaviours of people trapped on a journey of no return, though it should be treated with a vintage flavour.

All in all, its a flight of imagination wich will take you hours of enjoyment.
3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for Fans of Verne. But not his best. 6 décembre 2014
Par David Hill - Publié sur Amazon.com

Not Verne's best, but still a fun read. The archaic attitudes are harder than usual to take here. Verne seems to think that the company of sturdy male companions is enough for anybody, and women are completely irrelevant. I would think the lack of women in such a situation would be an issue, but, apparently for Verne, it was not. It does not make me think he was gay, it just makes me think he was sexist. Oh, well, it's still a great exercise in imagination, and it led to so much more. If you are a fan of Verne, read it, if not, there are better books to start with.
