Le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours by Jules Verne( Book )

102 editions published between 1873 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We do not present this most popular novel by French writer most widely read in the world: the breathless journey of Phileas Fogg, his valet Passepartout, and Princess Aouda, but give it henceforth as part of world literary heritage. Their adventure marks the end of the age of exploration to open the era of modernity: it is hereafter a straight line in space-time reduced to a single dimension that travels around the world. But this linear journey, far from being a pathetic return to the starting point, it is primarily in the field of transformation: the eccentric gentleman who returns to 7 Saville Row has become the happiest of men

Protože nemohli opravit poškozenou loď, bylichlapci donuceni žít v pusté, divoké přírodě, odkázáni sami na sebe. Usídlí se v jeskyni, sami si opatřují potravu, podle mapy mrtvého trosečníka postupně probádají ostrov, ochočí si různá zvířata,Musí však bojovat nejen s přírodou, ale i s vlastním sobectvím, individualismem a někdy až vyloženým odporem ke kolektivu. Pod hrozbou společného nebezpečí - když se na ostrov dostane skupina zločinců - se však rozdělení chlapcispojí v opravdu pevný kolektiv, jemuž se podaří nakonec za pomoci dvou dospělých lidí vrátit se i do novozélandských domovů. Kniha rychlého dějového spádu přesvědčivě ukazuje, že i věci a překážky zdánlivě nepřekonatelné, jimž bypodlehl jedinec, dokáže překonat svorný a stmelený kolektiv

Un roman historique de Jules Verne, où après avoir compulsé les archives, il nous donne sa version sympathique aux nordistes de la guerre de Sécession aux Etats-Unis.

Román byl napsán v 80. letech min. stol, kdy zájem evropských imperialistických států byl soustředěn na Afriku s bohatými nalezišti diamantů. V ústředí děje je "Hvězda Jihu", diamant nevídané dotud velikosti a krásy. Dobrodružné příhody, které se sběhnou kolem tohoto drahokamu, nalezeného mladým černochem, podstrčeného francouzskému inženýru Méréovi, který právě konal pokusy s výrobou umělých diamantů, spolknutého pštrosem, šťastně vydobytého z pštrosích útrob a nakonec výbuchem proměněného v hromádku prášku, podávají obraz života a práce na diamantových polích a zachycují i divoké, surové, necivilisované mravy, jaké vládly a dosud vládnou v afrických koloniích
