Two more enchanting, timeless journeys by Julius Verne. One to the distant – but so reminiscent of our time – future of 2889 and one to the beginning of the world – or its end. In In the Year 2889, America in the 29th century is portrayed in all its social and political relations, except that this picture strongly resembles the today’s world, today’s America. In The Eternal Adam, his final work, Verne tries to overturn the theory of evolution on the origin of man. The Eternal Adam confronts Darwin’s ape-man.
