  1. Finally a book I’ve actually read. Passepartout is pronounced pass par too. Never tell a French sci-fi fan that you thought Verne was British, they would not be happy :). You did pronounce Jules Verne correctly, Alexandre Dumas is pronounced Dumaa, Jules Verne wrote many good books, try twenty thousand leagues under the sea. You forgot to mention that he is seen as the father of science fiction (along with H.G. Wells). Loved the random bit at the end.The Lonely Recluse.

  2. Thank you! I should google the words I can't pronounce before I do the video. That happens way to often. Really? I didn't even know who Jules Verne was I just automatically assumed he was British because he wasn't American. I will never forget that he's not French though :)Yes! I'm excited to read the other books he wrote. I didn't realize he wrote them until I was researching him, now I'm exciting. And I will mention the fact that he's the father of science fiction when I read another book by him.Heh, I'm glad you enjoyed that part. I need to figure out how to end the video without rambling on forever.
