About the Author

Jules Verne was born in 1828, in Nantes, France. In 1847 he studied Law in Paris, but this was not his main passion in life. He enjoyed writing more than anything, and his first play was published in 1850. He was Scottish on his mother's side and developed a profound interest in Scotland. Also a keen geographer, he spent many hours in Paris libraries studying engineering and astronomy researching his first novel, Five Weeks in a Balloon, which was published in 1863. A year later he published one of his most famous novels, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea was published in 1873. He wrote prolifically through the rest of his life (54 novels) and died in 1905.

Reviews

Though his work is still well known, Verne principally is remembered for only a handful of books. He was quite prolific, however, often producing two novels per year for several decades. Alas, most of it is not available in English. This 1882 work is part adventure story, part romance, as heroine Helena Campbell rejects all suitors until she personally sees the mysterious green ray, which supposedly will guide her to true love. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

It is a charming literary work, very sweer, very simple and very sensitive. - PIERRE-JULES HETZEL Of all Verne's novels, The Green Ray most closely follows his own travel... written with affection and personal recollection... close to his heart. - PROFESSOR IAN THOMPSON
