Jules Verne was born in 1828 in Prance.
Young Jules was interested in machinery, sailing and writing. Together with his brother Paul, he explored the river near their home in an old sailboat.
Jules' father was a lawyer and he wanted his son to continue his career. So Jules was sent to Paris to study law. Jules, however, decided soon that his main interest was writing. He joined the club of scientific writers.
This group was interested in balloons so Jules soon wrote an adventure story called "Five Weeks in a Balloon". His favourite subject at school was geography, so he wanted to describe in his books as many parts of the world as possible.
Jules Verne’s books are still very popular as they are considered to be good adventure stories. In his books Verne forecast with remarkable accuracy many scientific achievements of the 20th century. He anticipated flights into outer space, submarines, helicopters, air conditioning, television, powerful weapons and some other things.

His works have been the source of many films, beginning in 1902 with “A Trip to the Moon”. “Around the World in 80 Days” was made into a highly successful movie in 1956.
During his life, Jules Verne wrote more than 50 books. The great author died at the age of 77 in 1905.
