This is the account of the perilous mission of Michael Strogoff, courier for Czar Alexander II, who is sent from Moscow to the besieged city of Irkutsk, where the governor, brother of the Czar, has taken his last stand against a Tartar rebellion led by the fearsome Feofar-Khan. When telegraph lines are cut between the Russian Far East and the mainland, Strogoff must make his way through hostile territory to warn the governor of the return of the traitor Ivan Ogareff, a disgraced former officer who seeks vengeance against the Tsar’s family by the destruction of Irkutsk.

A different premise from other Verne books to which I've listened. Very good as told as only Jules Verne can do. He makes you care deeply

Well read. Good yarn over a long story line with good Plot and buildup, great overview of earlier days in travels across Russia... Tense with good characters and detailed environment scenic descriptions with strong emotions built up regarding the barbarism of the conquering/invading foes to Russia. Much enjoyed, thanks!

GREAT SURPRISE

(5 Sterne)

A very different sort of book for Verne, but a rousing success. Verne's penchant for detail serves well as the descriptions of the heroic trek actually give one a fine description of the countryside, much like a travelogue. The reader offered a fine interpretation of the tale.
