Reviews


(3 stars)

Unfortunately, one whole chapter (The Death House) is missing from the narration. I checked the text on Project Gutenberg because I was confused by the reading. The same chapter has been put under the two last titles. Annoying and confusing. The book itself is good, but a bit technical at times.


(4 stars)

It’s ok, some very interesting scientific investigations but sometimes a bit too technical for me. I do wonder if some of his devises are still used today or where they just imagination at work for the story?


(5 stars)

As most Reeve stories, entertainment & his science though great for the period , is still quite interesting & usually wrangles the concerned just in time. Thank you Arthur B.....
