Classical Adventure and Science Fiction Writers

World's greatest science fiction writer. Although considered fiction, his writings vividly described machines too advanced in his time, the products of a rich mind, that became the forerunners of today's submarine, dirigible, rocket, spaceship, and the like.

Adventure is an inevitable part of childhood. Scientists believe that early exposure to adventure - real and imaginary - contributes immensely to a happy childhood, and enhances a better chance to face successfully the realities of adult life in a fast changing world.

I recommend these fiction novels for reading and viewing.
  1. Jules Verne – Around the World in 80 Days, Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea, Journey to the Center of the Earth
  2. Ernest Hemingway – The Old Man and the Sea, Snows of Kilimanjaro
  3. Johann Wyss – Swiss Family Robinson
  4. Daniel Defoe – Robinson Crusoe
  5. Anna Sewell – Black Beauty
  6. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - The Lost World
  7. Mark Twain – Tom Sawyer, Huckleberry Finn
  8. Rudyard Kipling – Jungle Book
  9. Herman Merville – Moby Dick
  10. Robert Louis Stevenson – Treasure Island, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde
  11. Frances Burnett – The Secret Garden
  12. Edgar Rice Burrows - Tarzan
  13. Creators of Flash Gordon, etc.
Take hold of these novels - in print or CD, or both - and you will realize the transformation of your life. Parental guidance may be needed for some works, or parts of a certain story.
