Paris in the Twentieth Century by Jules Verne

Paris in the Twentieth Century - Richard Howard, Jules Verne, Eugen Weber

Paris in the Twentieth Century is a relatively short and fast read. The only setback for me was getting lost a couple of times amidst all the names of people and places.Verne's image of the twentieth century is on one hand horribly bleak. On the other hand, Verne's ideas are amazingly fantastic. We can still only dream about some technical achievements he envisioned.

 

If you like the kind of science-fiction predicting the future which is really already the past, you should not overlook this book.
