My Review

Rating: 3/10

It has been several years since I’ve read Verne. Since this was excercise bike reading I thought I’d read one of the few short stories he’s written. It was about America 1000 years into the future. It was interesting to see that some of his predictions came to fruition within 50 to 75 years of the writing. Also, I thought it intriquing that the US annexed Great Britain – while France remained an independant nation. An interesting viewpoint coming from a frenchman.

Overall it was lame.
