Two Years' Vacation and Family Without a Name (2 Books) THE VOYAGES EXTRAORDINAIRES Books #32 #33 This is the name of the sequence of fifty-four novels written Jules Verne, originally published between 1863 and 1905. Verne's editor Pierre-Jules Hetzel, said that the goal of these novels was "to outline all the geographical, geological, physical, and astronomical knowledge amassed by modern science and to recount, in an entertaining and picturesque format ... the history of the universe."In Verne’s own words, his intention was “to complete, before my working days are done, a series which shall conclude in story form my whole survey of the world’s surface and the heavens; there are still left corners of the world to which my thoughts have not yet penetrated. As you know, I have dealt with the moon, but a great deal remains to be done, and if health and strength permit me, I hope to finish the task.” Verne's meticulous attention to detail and scientific trivia, coupled with his sense of wonder and exploration, are the backbone of the Voyages. Part of the reason for the broad appeal of his work was the sense that the reader could acquire knowledge of geology, biology, astronomy, paleontology, oceanography, etc., as well as to travel to the exotic locations and cultures of the world through the adventures of Verne's protagonists.
