Jules Verne smooth, fast-paced writing style and his detailed descriptive passages truly anticipate the style of twentieth century science fiction.

Verne focused the action of his novels in yet unexplored locations like outer space, the bottom of the ocean and deep inside the Earth, but in novels such as The Children of Captain Grant (1868), he carried his readers to South America and Australia, lands that were just as remote and exotic for most Europeans as the moon.
