The Other Log of Phileas Fogg

( 10 )

Overview

About a hundred years ago, a group of mutant supermen began playing a major role in our affairs. It is no accident that Tarzan, Sherlock Holmes, Captain Nemo, and Doc Savage were (are?) contemporaries. Nor was it accidental that their biographers titillated their public with hints of their true natures while not daring to part the veil. Just what was it that restrained them from telling all?

    Disappointing book, one of the few that I've quit reading in the

    Disappointing book, one of the few that I've quit reading in the middle. As the overview above states, "sits cleverly alongside Verne's original tale", is an apt description of this book. Farmer doesn't re-write the original tale, but expects the reader to know every detail of the Verne novel. There is no attempt to set the scene in any chapter, and ultimately each scene make no sense without the context of the original work. After just finishing "Captain Nemo" by Kevin J. Anderson (highly recommended), I was hoping for another entertaining "Alternate" history of the characters Fogg and Nemo.

    Waste of time

    Difficult to follow, ultimately boring.

    Great mix of characters

    I was unaware that this is one of a series of novels that combines characters from one or more seemily unrelated stories. In this case, it is Phileas Fogg and his valet on their 80 day quest getting mixed up with characters from Verne as well as A.C. Doyle.
