Jules Verne Audiobooks

Jules Gabriel Verne (1828 – 1905) was a French author of sci-fi adventure novels, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Journey to the Centre of the Earth, and Around the World in Eighty Days. His ability to imagine future technology cannot be underestimated, as he foresaw the development of air, sea and space craft long before their practical development. Verne is credited with the predictions of air conditioning, cars, electricity, television, the internet, helicopters, jukeboxes, skyscrapers and more, particularly in his book Paris in the 20th Century, which was locked in a safe for a 100 years and not published until 1994.

Verne grew up in the seaside town of Nantes, and was captivated with the dreams of adventure. At the age of twelve he hid out on an India-bound ship, but was caught by his father, who beat him roundly. "I shall from now on only travel in my imagination," he said, which was a boon for literature, as he likely would’ve wound up as some salty sea dog. Later Verne went to Paris to study law, but spent most of his time writing. When his dad found out he cut him off, and Jules was forced to fend for himself. During this time he met Alexandre Dumas and Victor Hugo, who helped him along with his writing. Dumas and Verne would become tight friends. And the rest, as they say, is history.
