    1. Por qu dos lecturas empezando y terminando los mismos d as Sencillo he le do dos ediciones diferentes a la vez La primera es la que aparece aqu , y la segunda es, como siempre, la de S enz de Jubera.Esto requiere una peque a explicaci n La versi n de El Volc n de Oro que todos conocemos, y que se sigue publicando, no es el libro que originalmente escribi Verne Hasta hace poco se desconoc an los cambios que Michel Verne, hijo del autor, hab a introducido en algunas de las obras p stumas, entre el [...]

    3. THE GOLDEN VOLCANO 1910 Jules VerneThis was another of Verne s novels that was published after his death that was severely edited and changed by his son Michael This new translation was made from Verne s original manuscript and now presents the author s true intent in telling his story It is not science fiction in our sense of the term, but there are some far fetched incidents involved Two young men, cousins, were informed that their uncle their only living relative had recently died He left his [...]


    4. El volc n de oro es un libro que demuestra una excelente calidad narrativa al repasar las aventuras de los dos primos protagonistas El autor maneja a la perfecci n las precarias tecnolog as aur feras de la poca y las pone a disposici n de los lectores, conjug ndolas en la constante aventura que supone para Summy y Ben adentrarse en aquellos terrenos alaskianos indomables en busca de oro La nica dificultad que tuve al leer el texto fue que a ratos la enumeraci n de parajes y rutas que siguen los [...]


    5. Ma era questo il Verne che ci trascinava in letture compulsive, due o tre giorni senza quasi prendere fiato Son riuscita a malapena a riconoscere qua e l nelle parole dei protagonisti il fantasma di quelle battute che ci mandavano in un delirio di risate, e che non desterebbero la bench minima reazione nei giovani lettori d oggi Ma che ragazzi eravamo Anche mettendo in conto l impressione di generale non finitezza del romanzo, pubblicato postumo, e i generosi tagli che riducevano lo spessore dei [...]


    6. I read this book as a child and re read it now as an adult It is still a great read full of adventure and fun.




    7. The Golden Volcano focuses upon two cousins, Summy Skim and Ben Raddle, whose uncle has died, leaving them gold claim No 129 on the Fortymile River The cousins must make the perilous journey from their home in Montreal, Canada, to Klondike, which borders Alaska, in order to claim their inheritance During their journey, they are enticed by the legend of the Golden Mount, an extinct volcano filled with gold Verne provides great detail throughout the novel Even telling of the higher prices in the g [...]


    8. This is a somewhat conventional adventure story without the elements of exotic technology that Verne was most famous for It is the story of two cousins, living in French Canada, who discover that a deceased uncle has left them a gold mine near Dawson in Western Canada After some discussion, they cousins decide visit the mine in order to figure out what to do with it The original version was edited by Verne s son Michel and Michel made some changes that modern Jules Verne fans find upsetting This [...]


    9. This book was OK It was a slow read I m still not sure if this was because it was a very slow crescendo to build suspense, or actually just a boring story.I think I liked the idea of the story than the execution of it The concept had the potential to be really interesting, but the characters and plot just lacked the development to fulfill it It felt like this story was just missing the magic of some of his previous works.


    10. Not one of Verne s best, but still enjoyable Found lots of nods to his other works, and parts were slightly repetitive The travel in the book moves faster than I would have liked, and the events are slow in the beginning but pick up as the book goes on Not bad, but The Mysterious Island was better.


    11. This one is definitely not Verne s best The exposition goes on for too long, and the story is a bit lackluster Dedicated Vernians will likely adore this nonetheless, but others should stick with his other works.


    12. Just too boring I got about 2 chapters into it and couldn t stand it any The language was odd I don t know if the translation was awkward or if there just wasn t much to work with in the first place.Recommend can t




    13. I enjoyed this story, but not as much as other Verne novels There was a good bit of action and detail though, and I didn t feel like it droned on as some of his dry material tends to do.


    14. I just couldn t get through this one In fact, I m not sure I ve ever read a Jules Verne novel completely Despite being classics, I just can t keep up the enthusiasm they are so slow moving
