The Begum's Fortune - Jules Verne

okay. I just plowed all the way through this, after reading what I had left of The New York Detective.


gotta love Verne the visionary - even in lesser works - but this SF/Spy thing decides to go from anti-climax to anti-climax. the first half is more interesting. the second half should have been more fun than it was. I did like Max’s escape from Stahlstadt, though; entertaining spy-jinks.


this book has a good chance of offending Germans...and to break up any monotony, the Chinese.
