Summary

Like The Begum's Millions, which Verne published in 1879, it has the theme of France and the entire world threatened by a super-weapon (what would now be called a weapon of mass destruction) with the threat finally overcome through the force of French patriotism.

Reviews

I've listened to a lot of the Verne novels. I couldn't even get through the first chapter of this one. The reader was atrocious, stumbling over common words, muttering under his breathe. I'll find the print book instead.
