Read online A Floating City (Extraordinary Voyages #8).pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC A Floating City (Extraordinary Voyages #8) A Floating City published in enjoyed a popularity almost equal to that of Round the World in Eighty Days The Floating City was the direct result of the trip which the author actually made to America in on the largest iron ship ever built He gives us a faithful picture of the natural and usual incidents of an ocean voyage of those days enlivening these by introducing a romance aboard ship The pictures of the Great Eastern are of course exaggerated not so much in words themselves as in the impressions they convey But the pictures of New York and of Niagara are the genuine imprint made upon the great writer by his visit by Jules Verne
