Summary Though Michael Strogoff : the courier of the Czar hews more closely to the genre of historical fiction than the science fiction for which Jules Verne is best known, the novel contains the same action-packed adventure and intrigue that made Verne famous, and critics now regard it as one of the author's most fully realized literary efforts. A must-read for Verne fans and lovers of fast-paced historical adventures.
