    1. When English naturalist Charles Darwin released his groundbreaking work "On the Origin of Species" in November 1859, it set off a firestorm of controversy regarding its central tenet: organic evolution, and the descent of life from a common ancestral source. Indeed, such was the brouhaha over this novel concept that even 66 years later, during the so-called Scopes Trial in Dayton, Tennessee, the subject was hotly debated, and in fact, to this very day, over 150 years since Darwin's most famous w [...]


    2. review of Jules Verne's The Village In The Treetops by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - April 6, 2013 Surprise, surprise, my full review is "too long" so it's here instead: /story/show/3I cut the end of this review out here to accommodate the word limit. According to promotional/introductory text on the 1st printed p of this edition: "This is the first English translation of the last of Jules Verne's works to be published in his own lifetime." That, in itself, is enuf to make it fascinating for me. [...]


    3. Не найкращий роман Жюля Верна, але колись здавався цікавим. Пригоди в Африці


    4. This is another minor Verne chiefly devoted to exotic travel. A hunting party on the headwaters of the Congohas its leader killed and supplies destroyed by a herd of rampaging elephants. They find a raft left behind by an eccentric German scientist who was trying to learn the language of apes. Going down river on the raft, they rescue a baby who seems to be a young "missing link" hairier than a human child but capable of limited speech. The raft wrecks on rapids and the party are rescued by the [...]


    5. This book predates Tarzan by a decade, and tackles very similar ideas about evolution and the dark heart of Africa. However, unlike Burroughs, Verne shows here a keen understanding of both science and human nature. I will concede that the story itself is less inventive and more mundane, more along the lines of Haggard.However, Verne's exploration of Darwinism, evolution, and the 'missing link' is much more informed and hence, as prescient as Verne is liable to be. If only there were some middle [...]


    6. 3.5 stars from Sandy, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer: just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersWhen English naturalist Charles Darwin released his groundbreaking work On the Origin of Species in November 1859, it set off a firestorm of controversy regarding its central tenet: organic evolution, and the descent of life from a common ancestral source.

    7. Debemos tener en cuenta la época en la que es escribió este libro antes de hacer cualquier juicio de valor sobre su desarrollo. Ciertamente no es de los más lúcidos del autor, con toda esa exposición de la teoría de Darwin y cómo se sabía que podía haber evolucionado el hombre a partir del antecesor común del mono. A esto hay que añadir que el autor no es muy benigno con el concepto de "salvaje bueno", con continuas evaluaciones antropológicas y morales que harían poner el grito en [...]


    8. Yo llamaría a este libro con "Un Safari con Jules"Es sin dudas un libro bastante descriptivo por sobre todas las cosas, la fauna y flora citadas, ambientan perfectamente el sitio en el cual nos transporta la lectura (Congo-África)La trama es un poco previsible por la mitad, pero ya en la parte final, deja un buen sabor de boca al lector, bastante imaginativo Verne aquí, jugando con las teorías evolucionistas propuestas por Charles Darwin, al cual de hecho menciona en varios pasajes del libro [...]


    9. The ideas were interesting, but in execution, I think the book fell short. It took 138 pages for the group to even find the village. Until that point, I thought it was extremely tedious to read, but I kept on because I hoped that it would improve. It didn't. When they did finally reach the village, everything that happened was easily predicted and resolved quickly and without much thought. I usually like Jules Verne, but this one turned out to be a disappointment.


    10. Първата книга, която майка ми ми прочете като дете, преди да мога аз самият да чета. Все още си спомням образи и картини от историята. Дори части от финала (оставих името в оригинал, както е върху книгата, въпреки, че в съвременна България преимаме името Жул, а на Жюл и пишем "въ [...]


    11. Rarely have I found Verne to not be somewhat enjoyable. Certainly some of the views expressed are a bit outdated, but if you keep in mind when the story was written, they can be somewhat excused.



    12. Abrazando el pensamiento imperialista de su época, Verne regala una aventura menor, pero entretenida.
