Read full description of the books The Extraordinary Adventures of Foundling Mick:Jules Verne's rediscovered Irish novel, from the collections of the National Library of Ireland, is a heart-warming story of a young orphan's trials and tribulations in the late nineteenth century. Published in full by the Royal Irish Academy for the first time since its 1895 debut in English, it is a fascinating description of and commentary on nineteenth century Ireland. The Extraordinary Adventures of Foundling Mick takes readers on a tour of Ireland and her social classes. Mick's travels include visits to Westport, Galway, Limerick, Tralee, Cork, and Belfast, all of which are beautifully described. On his journey, he meets beggars, thieves, farmers, and landlords. Finally, our hero reaches Dublin where his fortunes thankfully change for the better. Often described as Verne's tribute to Charles Dickens, this book also shows the Frenchman's affection and respect for Ireland and her people.
Read information about the authorJules Gabriel Verne was a French author who pioneered the genre of science-fiction. He is best known for his novels Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873).
Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated author of all time, behind Disney Productions and Agatha Christie. His prominent novels have been made into films. Verne, along with H. G. Wells, is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction".
