A family from 1940's decide to travel in to the future and land in a time a 100 yrs later. How could they do it is a big question. They make an impression on a dead and decadent society of the time. Very abrupt ending with little or no plot.
One of my favourite books when in school. I read it many times after that. Now I own a copy and still reading it. The book is sure to bring in a spirit of adventure in young people.
Henry Ratliff's excellent review is more interesting than the book.
Splendid. This is a real movie stuff written over a hundred years ago. May be Prates of the Caribbeans has been inspired by Collingwood's pirate tales. The story is so engrossing that I completed in one stretch. This thriller is about a 17 year old boy (the book is not classified for young readers only) who is assigned to captain a ship all by himself. I recommend this wonderful book for its descriptions, geographical knowledge and sail-ship technicalities. You will love it.
