Robur the Conqueror

Review

“[T]hrillingly captures the passion and excitement of early aviation and, more poetically, the enchantment of flight.”—Michael Dirda, Barnes & Noble

Endorsement

"One of Verne's most compelling and enjoyable novels within his Extraordinary Voyages series, this is a very important work and an integral piece of the Jules Verne corpus." —Peter Schulman, translator of Jules Verne's The Secret of Wilhelm Storitz

"Jules Verne, with his legendary prescience and uncanny ability to make scientific prophecies, explores in this book the dream of flight in heavier-than-air machines. Along the way, he provides us with a fascinating look into challenging scientific disputes, as well as into the startlingly prejudicial and imperialistic views of the nineteenth century. A gripping read." —Mario Livio, astrophysicist and author of Brilliant Blunders
