Inhaltsangabe: In Jules Verne's Five Weeks in a Balloon or Journeys and Discoveries in Africa by Three Englishmen (1869), Dr. Ferguson sets out to discover the unknown areas of Africa with his servant in a hydrogen-filled balloon. A precursor to works like Around the World in Eighty Days, it is to some extent a parody of earlier travel narratives. Harper compared it to Dickens's Pickwick Papers: ""The interest of the book lies in the air of sober reality with which the most impossible events are narrated."
About the Author: Jules Verne studied law but began writing stories and working in theatre as well. When Verne's father discovered his son was writing, he promptly withdrew his financial support. Verne then worked as a stockbroker.His wife encouraged him to pursue his writing, and he became acquainted with Pierre-Jules Hetzel, an important French publisher. Hetzel helped improve Verne's writings, which until then had been repeatedly rejected by other publishers. He died a wealthy man in 1905.
