Publisher's Summary

The fantastic tales of adventure penned over 100 years ago by Jules Verne still live in the minds and hearts of millions. Futuristic concepts and legendary heroes mix with visions of a utopian world and crazed madmen. And yet, this incredible legacy is still misunderstood and misinterpreted.Hundreds of writers have tried desperately to analyze the writings of Jules Verne, claiming on the one hand that there is an underlying sexual message, on the other that he is guiding us towards some hidden and lost treasure. But what is the truth? Were these highly successful stories simply great works of fiction? Or do they really hold a message for us today? This is a voyage into the world of Jules Verne, the father of science fiction.

Disappointing treatment of a fascinating author

The description sounded great, but this book was a big disappointment. It's all about trying to "expose" hidden meanings in Verne's works, mostly related to his interest in (not-so) secret societies of 19th century France, like the Freemasons. A superficial analysis is heavily padded with annoying, melodramatic background music.
