About Author

Jules Verne was born at Nantes, in France, on February 8, 1828. Jules had a great desire to travel since childhood.

Jules Verne's father wanted his son to study law and sent him to Paris for that purpose. But Jules, instead, spent his time in the world of theatre, and even wrote some plays. He started visiting the public libraries to spend his time.

A wonderful new world, more fascinating than travel, opened up before him—the world of the natural sciences. Jules read avidly, he soon became a storehouse of boundless information, which was to become the foundation of his great success as a writer of science fiction.

A lucky chance brought him in contact with a person who was planning a trip across Europe in a balloon. Jules Verne entered into the scheme whole-heartedly. Though he could not go on the trip, he was inspired to write his first book Five Weeks in a Balloon, which was an instant success. He wrote his second book From Earth to the Moon, which was the first story to use the rocket principle. Its success was incredible. The public waited breathlessly for the sequel Round the Moon which described the space journey in detail. Jules Verne died at Amiens on 24th March 1905.

Verne is often referred to as the ';Father of Science Fiction' and he created many imaginary inventions that became reality. Many scientists, explorers and builders have been inspired by him.
