Off on a Comet is a high-stakes adventure novel and is included in Jules Verne's celebrated Voyages Extraordinaire series. When the orbit of a comet named Gallia is headed towards the Earth, the planet is facing a very high risk. However, Gallia only touches a small part of the Earth, sparing most of the world, but taking a small region of the planet with it on its journey through space. Thirty-six people, spanning from French, English, Spanish and Russian origins, live on this territory that Gallia has stolen, though they have no idea what has happened. Assuming that the impact was just an earthquake, the people in this territory do not realize that they have left Earth. Slowly, they begin to notice odd happenstances such as weight loss, the ability to jump higher, the short alternation between day and night, flipped compasses, and a new boiling point for water. As each community discovers these changes, the French, English, Spanish, and the Russians all band together to conduct a research expedition, sailing around the seas of their world. When their expeditions prove their suspicions, the group understand their situation more fully, and find out that the comet Gallia is headed back to Earth. However, as old power disputes arise between the nations, they are divided when they must work together to prepare themselves to survive the collision. With complex characters and the fascinating setting of space, Off on a Comet is a thrilling adventure that allows its audience to explore the mysterious realm of space. Included in Jules Verne's outstanding series, Voyage Extraordinaire, Off on a Comet promises a high stakes adventure, paired with the triumphs and downfalls of humankind as they struggle to work together. Though Off on a Comet was originally published nearly one-hundred and forty-five years ago, this Jules Verne novel continues to delight modern audiences with its unique premise and intriguing setting. This edition of Off on a Comet by Jules Verne is now available with a stunning new cover design and is printed in a font that is both modern and readable.
