Jules Gabriel Verne was a French novelist, poet, and playwright. Father of Michel Verne.
Jules Verne has impacted me in such an amazing way. His science fiction and adventure books are second to none.
"Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea" still holds my interest and I haven't picked the book up in about 8 years!
Jules Verne was very popular and famous in the '70s, '80s in Hungary. Somebody translated his name to Verne Gyula, possibly because of this, but most of the people thought, Verne was a Hungarian author. Funny.
