    Un barco a bordo del cual se trama un mot n, recoge a dos hermanos n ufragos que acompa ar n su periplo por Ocean a A diferencia de otras ocasiones, en este libro Verne prolonga con regular xito una historia que parecer a no dar para mucho para ello, hace pasar a los personajes por varias situaciones sucesivas, con satisfactorias soluciones de continuidad Lo mejor es el talento de Verne para transportarnos a tierras lejanas, despert ndonos la curiosidad por su geograf a y su historia.
