    1. With this first book Jules Verne actually takes up the legend That is, first of all, the first of his works listed in the series of extraordinary voyages.In 1863, Africa is a mysterious continent, unknown The age is the age of the great explorations and Jules Verne imagined a trip by three men the inventor of a new type of balloon, Dr Ferguson his employee Joe and Dick Kennedy his friend.They take off Zanzibar and live multiple and exciting adventures before reaching Senegal and return to Englan [...]

    2. Verne s first full length novel, while setting the formula for many of his later books, is definitely not one of his best the science is sketchy and the plot is basically a series of small misadventures in a row that the three main characters escape with usually not too much difficulty and a just modicum of ingenuity The book would still be enjoyable enough, however, if not for the blatant racism that permeates all the pages where they meet another human being every single black person in Africa [...]

    6. Definitivamente duas estrelas e meia, que s arredondo para tr s pela segunda metade da hist ria Confesso que foi um livro que em parte me custou a ler, n o s pelas exaustivas e repetitivas descri es dos lugares por onde passam os viajantes, que o tornam mon tono e entediante, mas tamb m pela falta de sentido de progress o que me impediu de manter agarrado hist ria Em boa verdade, passei a maior parte do livro espera de um acontecimento s bito que me motivasse a acab lo e com alguma tristeza que [...]

    7. 3,5 5 N ayant tudi que des extraits des romans de Jules Verne pendant ma scolarit et les ayant g n ralement appr ci s, il me tardait de me plonger dans un roman entier J ai donc choisi pour commencer le premier ouvrage de la s rie des Voyages Extraordinaires.J ai appr ci suivre notre trio, l ing nieux Dr Fergusson, le chasseur Kennedy et le brave Joe au grand coeur, travers leurs aventures africaines Les descriptions des techniques a ronautiques sont certes nombreuses mais je pense que tout lect [...]

    8. En l se ve la amplia documentaci n en que se basa para escribirla y ya se empieza a ver la gran imaginaci n del escritor para describir los sitios por donde pasan y que todav a no se hab an descubierto en el momento en que lo escribe Cinco semanas en globo de Julio Verne

    9. Not the best Verne I read It still amazes me how modern some comments feel At the other side the tone sadly is very racist and only understandable if you look at the time it was written However there are far better works of Julles Verne worth the read.

    10. Despu s de unos 30 a os de no leer ninguna novela de Jules Verne autor de varios favoritos de mi infancia , se me ocurri empezar a leer toda la serie de los Viajes Extraordinarios en orden, proyecto que no pude terminar en la escuela primaria, donde ten an la colecci n completa en unos tomitos azules de tapa dura con olor a libro viejo, y que amaba.Entonces, comenc con este que es el primero de todos, publicado en 1863 Ten a mucho miedo de que mi amor infantil por Verne se diluyera en la relectu [...]

    12. I enjoyed this story so much than I thought I would Having read 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea a while back, I was already familiar with the writing of Jules Verne And while that book was very good, there were also some flaws such as the writer s tendency to bog the narrative down with long winded, heavily technical descriptions regarding the scientific processes and theories related to his story These parts I felt slowed the pace too much But they were always compensated for, with some very exci [...]

Excelsior Me encanto Necesitaba alejarme un poco de la literatura juvenil y este libro fue una lectura acertada Aunque cuando empec a leerlo no pod a pasar de las 10 p ginas por d a, los primeros c pitulos abarcan la introducci n a los personajes y la explicaci n de como funciona el globo Se me hac a tan complejo leer toda la explicaci n del aer stato que pens en abandonar este libro, pero menos mal que no Cuando la trama ya se enfoca en las aventuras del Doctor y sus compa eros se vuelve una ad [...]

    15. Five Weeks in A Balloon is the first novel written by Jules Verne and unquestionably one of his best Unfortunately it is indeed as its reputation holds highly racist which creates problems about how it should be approached Sir Samuel Ferguson the hero of Five Weeks in a Balloon is a member of the Royal Geographic Society who in the the 1850s decides to explore Africa by crossing it from East to West in a balloon accompanied by two endearing sidekicks Where it works, the descriptions of the camar [...]

    17. Ok, ok, so the book is racist but it s also just bad So bad that after weeks of putting it aside and trying to muster up the strength to slog through to the end, I gave up, read about it online, and have no regrets Having never explored Jules Verne, I was inspired to read his work after adoring All the Light We Cannot See , in which the sea loving female protagonist reads 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 Days I bought a gorgeous collection of 4 of his novels and started wi [...]

    18. A late review, because actually I ve started reading this book after I ve finished reading Around the World in 80 Days two in one Similar plot, one guy tries to prove that he s capable of doing something that others can only imagine and cannot That is why the I read Verne s books, the I feel that he s trying to stress human spirit and optimism If you have the capability, funding and strength to achieve your dreams, go for it and who cares about what others may think That s the key message.The [...]

    19. While idly wandering through a book store for something to read recently, one book in particular caught my attention A collection of Jules Verne books, featuring his first novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon Verne being one of my favorite authors, I had no hesitation in purchasing the hefty book, and soon began to plow through it The book involves three men which seems to be a constant in Verne s fictional universes and their adventures travelling over the continent of Africa in a hot air balloon Aft [...]

    20. A fairly solid entry in the Verne catalogue He does manage to make a balloon trip interesting than i expected.There s also a lot of information concerning the history of african exploration which was informative as always with verne.I don t have enough science knowledge to support or pick apart vernes version of a balloon but its not your standard hot air type used today.Our three main characters all well drawn and there s some humour to be had in their personalities The first half seemed a lit [...]

    21. I really enjoyed this book Sure, it had it s problems The plot was a bit formulaic, and the charactersweren t all that deep and fleshed out But it was fun, and entertaining.Don t be put of by comments of racist language, although that is certainly scattered throughout the book But this book was also published in 1862, and so is a product of it s times, and you have to take that into account when readingit.

    22. Soy FAN de Jules Verne Este libro me gusto m s que el primero que le , tiene much simo m s aventuras que contar y los personajes me gustaron Las aventuras que pasan son incre bles Es aun m s r pido de leer y te dejan con las ganas de tomar el siguiente libro que por cierto ya estoy en eso.

    24. Cinq Semaines en Ballon is really a road trip story, except the road is the sky and the car is a balloon filled with highly flammable hydrogen This book is typically entertaining Verne, with it s intelligent and self assured protagonist and series of exotic adventures It s hard to believe that a balloon could ever have been the high tech, futuristic gadget in a semi science fictiony adventure story, but balloons were cutting edge in the 1860s and the French would use them inspire the world durin [...]

    26. No me considero un Verniano, aunque si le unos cu ntos libros de Verne hace algunos a os Este a o, me decid en leer todos sus libros en orden de publicaci n y, como tiene que ser, comenc por este.Teniendo en mente los otros que hab a le do, he de decir que queda bastante claro que es su primer libro Si bien es un buen libro, no sobresale por encima de la media como si lo hacen otras obras suyas Tiene un comienzo muy lento y prolongado, casi el primer tercio del libro, lo que me hizo sopesar el d [...]

    27. This is a story of three men s journey across Africa in a balloon The story is very dated and written in accordance with the social norms of the day In this regard, it can be perceived as racist and, given there are no female characters, sexist However, the story is a classic It is full of suspense and drama which leaves the reader on the edge of the seat wondering what will happen next Interestingly, the story has no villain characters, the landscape and the people and animals in it are the vil [...]
