Utazás távoli tájakon, különleges körülmények között, titokzatos társaságban - ennek Verne a mestere! Kaland a jeges Ázsia kellős közepén! ( )

Un clásico. Grandiosa novela con un final que a mis ojos de niño le pareció inesperado y genial, incluyendo la explicación física del suceso. Maravilloso. Imprescindible. ( )

This was an amazing book by Jules Verne. Not only was I taken along for the wild ride across Russia with all of the things it had to offer, but the twist I did not see coming and it managed to propel me towards the climax of the story and imbue the ending with so much grandeur. This is a darker Verne book, yet one that will surely be remembered and that I felt had a very strong plot-line, characters, and descriptions. Overall, a great novel!

4.5 stars! ( )

This is rather a different Jules Verne novel from any others of his I have read, being set entirely within Russia and featuring mostly Russian characters (with the exception of an English and a French journalist who are there merely for comic relief). The title character is a courier for Tsar Alexander II (the Tsar who liberated the serfs in 1861), who must make a desperate journey into a Siberia which has been invaded by the Tartars, aided by a Russian traitor. While the novel starts a bit slowly, the second half is exciting with a number of dramatic and some quite shocking episodes. The ending felt a bit rushed and was as cliched as might be expected. Overall, a good read. ( )
