Kostenlos ePUB Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Dover Children's Evergreen Classics)Autor Jules Verne – Wildlives.co

This was the first book by Jules Verne, I have read since I was a teenager In my memory, those were fantastic and exciting books, but after finishing TTLUTS, I think my memory possibly mixed up Verne and H.G Wells or I had been reading special teenager editions.TTLUTS is of course no modern book The pace of the story is nothing but slow, the author concentrates on scenes under water mostly in which he sometimes brings up images, but often fails to do so But what I really disliked about the book is the larger parts of the text which is nothing but classifying animals and plants This maybe once was looked upon as education, but I really find it boring If I want to learn those thing, I will pick up a science book.I fought to the last pages, where the main characters mysteriously are safed And I will be safed from further books by Verne for sure. This is Verne s classic novel about Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus What really fascinated me when reading this story and other Verne novels was not only Verne s contributions to the science fiction genre, but his founding of a whole new genre, one that, as far as I know, he has never been given credit I think Verne was one of the first to write the techno novel, a work that is filled with technical details ala Tom Clancy For this novel, Verne did considerable research to describe what was known as accurately as possible Professor Arronax and his servant Conseil board a U S ship that is searching for a monster that has sunk a number of other ships They discover that it isn t a monster at all but a submarine, captained by a mysterious man known only as Nemo Verne will present readers with Nemo once again in The Mysterious Island Arronax, Conseil, and an American harpooner named Ned Land travel with Nemo and see many wonderous things and have many adventures Verne s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea has gotten some very poor reviews over the decades since it first appeared in 1869 In many cases, it was because of the translation and not because of Verne A number of the early translators inserted their own sections with their own ideas and opinions and deleted much of Verne s own words So, readers should be aware of the translator I read an excellent translation by Walter James Miller that was also annotated Such an annotated volume can prove to be very helpful to teenagers getting acquainted with Nemo and his submarine. nur von der aufmachung des buches hat mir selbiges nicht gefallen das papier ist nicht sch n und das cover kommt komisch r ber aber ich mein des soll niemanden abhalten das buch zu kaufen wenn er die geschichte lesen will Das Wichtigste vorweg ich habe dieses Buch abgebrochen Eigentlich schade, aber ich werde mit Klassikern einfach nicht warm wie es scheint Ich fand die Sprache furchtbar trocken und die Erz hlweise kam mir mehr wie ein zu lang geratenes Laborprotokoll vor Zur Zeit seiner Entstehung war das Buch wahrscheinlich wirklich spannend und aufregend und wenn man es heute im Kindesalter liest funktioniert es vielleicht auch, das kann ich nicht beurteilen So aus heutiger Sicht und in meinem Alter betrachtet macht es mir jedenfalls keinen Spa Mehr als ca 60 Buch Seiten habe ich nicht geschafft, ehe das eBook in die virtuelle Ecke flog Die beschriebenen technischen Dinge sind einerseits teils eingeholt was nat rlich auch irgendwie interessant ist , andere berholt und die Unterwasseratmosph re, soweit ich sie entdeckt habe, wird von der viel zu technischen Aufdr selung aller Beobachtungen schlicht platt geredet.
