When i saw this book,i knew adventure was not my kind of genre, but the beautiful cover, which is absolutely breathtaking, was what drew me to it. when i started reading the first book, it was absolutely spell binding! i am a big collector of the leatherbound classics, and this is one that will not be put on the bottom shelf! the binding is strong and durable- my book has already been through a lot and is holding up extremely well, and the writing is beautiful and easy to read! from the inside out, this book is a diamond in the rough!

Rarely do you see these classic pieces of literature rendered with such sophisticated elegance and beauty, faithfully honoring and respecting the equally unique, creative literary material loved by generations of readers. I have been enjoying them all, and eagerly look forward to each new addition to the series. Hopefully, the publisher (who appears to be unreachable) will keep releasing more of these fine collected works, including such classic writers as Baum, Milne, Kipling, Twain, London, Melville, Hemingway, Stoker, Shelley, as well as other poets like Virgil, Longfellow, Keats, Eliot, Hawthorne, and Blake. Time will tell, but hope is alive. Get on board with these fantastic masterpieces of literature, and be swept away in worlds of imagination!

I live in Belgium, although i had to wait for over a month it was totally worth the wait! i would not buy a sloppy soft cover book printed without detailed and attractive cover as this one has. I have not read it yet, although it is a very thick book and the pages are thin, i feel that it will last a long time, very sturdy and the gilding is exquisite.

I love this book. It looks really spectacular and has all 7 novels in their entirety and well translated. The font could be a little bigger but if you have good eyes or adequate glasses than you should have no problem.

Very beautiful book. The book is sturdy, heavy, and feels soft to the touch. It is a steal for $18. Buy the book. I just wish it wasn't bound in China... But everything is now-a-days.

The Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics Series is a treasure, and this specific book is a special jewel. Jules Verne is a must for any library, and the cover is so wonderful. It caught my eye when I saw it online. In person, it is even better. The cover design is as whimsical as the story, and very fitting. The embossment, the gold edging, and the ribbon bookmark are all wonderful. It is a beauty for the shelf, and a treat for the imagination.

Hey Barnes &amp; Noble!!! How about a Verne collection with &quot;20,000 Leagues under the Seas&quot;, &quot;The Mysterious Island&quot;, and &quot;In Search of the Castaways&quot;... I'd buy it too. If I recall correctly, In Search of the Castaways is also known as &quot;The Children of Capt Grant&quot;.

Beautiful cover. This is my first leatherbound collection from B&amp;N, and now i want to collect them all!   I always loved adventure stories, and Jules Verne's timeless stories are fascinating and breathtaking .  The cover, the stories... it's an amazing book to have if you like reading or a bibliophile who just like to collect beautiful-looking books!
