    4. No suelo leer la contraportada de los libros, así que la mayoría de las veces empiezo uno sin saber de lo que trata. Esto es lo que me ha pasado con este. Por el título pensé que sería un libro de veleros y piratas pero¡Qué va! ¡Es muchísimo más que eso! Historia, Geografía, naturaleza, costumbres y valores humanosComo siempre, a las historias de Jules Verne no les falta de nada. Me encantan sus descripciones, su sentido del humor, su manera de "enseñar e informar" También me gusta [...]

    5. This was the first novel I ever read and I have yet to forget it. It was so inspiring because the writing was so pure, so honest, and the adventure so vividly portrayed.

    6. Frumoasă copilărie aș fi avut dacă aș fi apucat să citesc -la vremea aceea- opera integrală a lui Jules Verne!

    7. Todavía no me recupero del golpe tan tremendo de que la vieja Nan haya muerto de forma tan horrenda. :'( Pinche Verne, qué buena novela de aventuras. A veces es justo lo que uno necesita leer.

    8. Leí este libro cuando era niño y aunque recuerdo los puntos cruciales del argumento, casi todos los personajes y alguna línea de diálogo, la verdad es que lo califico con las cinco estrellas de por la impresión que dejó en mí. Tengo casi completa certeza que si releyera Un capitán de quince años una vez más ahora mismo le encontraría defectos aquí y allá; después de todo es una novela de aventura con un personaje que se llama Negoro, y sí, es negroLo que no cambiará nunca es el [...]

    10. The third Verne I read after "Around the World in 80 days" and "Michael Strogoff," and it was enjoyable enough for my age at that time, though much less than the other books by him I got my hands on.

    11. Nezinu, vairs tā nepatika kā bērnu dienās. Autors to vien dara kā savā grāmatā inkorporē svešus ceļojumu aprakstus. Nekautrējas ielikt pat veselu nodaļu ar Livingstona dzīves stāstu. Galvenie varoņi ir tikai marionetes, kas sēž stūrī gaidīdami, kad autors viņus beidzot pasauks. Ja nemaldos, tad joks ar seškāju zirnekli bija arī grāmatā "Kapteiņa Granta bērni".Šo Žila Verna grāmatu līdz šim biju lasījis tikai vienu reizi. Attaisnojums pavisam vienkāršs - mūsu [...]

    13. Del periplo del joven grumete de tan solo 15 años, Dick Sand, en el que se embarcará en un viaje de proporciones inesperadas, cargado de viles maquinaciones, personajes entrañables e incluso, para variar, una notable visión del yugo de la esclavitud a finales del siglo XIX. Una trepidante historia con el indiscutible sello del ingenio de un Verne en su más puro estilo, el de aventuras y más aventuras, con sus bases de historia, geografía, ciencia y humanidades. Una muy grata sorpresa, muy [...]

    14. для тех кто хоть раз мечтал все нахрен бросить и стать пиратом или любовницей пирата. но на самом деле глубокая книга. неторопливая, детальная, если море вас не колышит, то укачает на втором абзаце. как и 90 процентов всех прочитанных мною книг , эту я надыбала на полке (при чем [...]

    15. Un libro entretenido, sin dudas lleno de las cuestiones que hacen a Verne tan buen autor pero, de forma lamentable, peca de ser demasiado apresurado. El final no satisface, tampoco, debido a lo tirado por los cabellos que es. Pese a tener personajes entrañables, siento que los giros eran sacados de la manga y abundaban las casualidades de aquí para allá.

    16. Who am I to judge Jules Verne, one of the most beloved writers in the world. I had run out of books so I got this one out of my shelves and read it and I must say I had a great time. I read many of Vernes books when I was a teenager and I really loved them all. I definitely recommend this novel to children, teenagers or adults.

    17. i really enjoyed this book. It is packed with information about sailing a whaling ship, the African slave trade and other dimensions of the mid 1800s, wrapped up in a slighty implausible tale that traverses several continents.

    18. Το καλυτερο,για μενα βιβλιο του Βερν.Απαραιτητη η αναγνωση του.

    19. Good book for travellingLong trips with Dick Sand will make it quite shorter for you! Each hero falls into your heart at once! Yeah, rereading it was a great idea!!

    20. archive/stream/dicksand120How had the ferule come to break. It was inexplicable enough. It was possible, however, that it was oxydized, and that the pitching and rolling had broken it from the woodwork. Now, indeed, the sea had been rougher during the night. However it was, the compass was broken in such a manner that it could not be repaired."Broken!" cried Dick Sand. "And the log is lost!"Dick Sand was much thwarted. Henceforth he was reduced to trust solely to the compass in the binnacle. Ver [...]

    23. This was the very first book that I read outside of school textbooks so it was a long long time ago and I was about 7 or 8 yrs old. I started it many times and refused go past 100 pages, but my mother was forcing me to read and wouldn't let me do anything else so at some point I passed the 100th page or so and couldn't put it down anymore. It is essentially the book that got me into reading. It is a captivating story with lots and lots of real information about insects, animals, weather, the oce [...]

    24. Sencillamente clásico y atrapante. Había olvidado lo genial que es leer a Verne, dado que dejé de leerlo a mis 13 años, sencillamente porque no tenía trabajo para poder pagar mis libros y tampoco nadie me los regalaba :( pero en serio. Había olvidado todo lo que se aprende leyéndolo, sus datos enciclopédicos e históricos, sus personajes principales con valores morales intachables, y sus finales felices (aunque no al todo).Este libro fue todo lo que yo esperaba, y un poquito más. Soy m [...]

    25. A young sailor is thrust into the role of ship's captain when an unfortunate whaling accident carries off the stripped-down crew of his ship. Using five African-Americans who had been rescued earlier from a shipwreck as crew, young Dick Sands begins making his way toward the coast of South America. Onboard are three other passengers--the wife, five-year-old son, and useless cousin of the ship's owner--and the first villain I've run into in any of Verne's adventure novels, a Portuguese cook who s [...]

    26. What I expected: a marine adventure. What I got instead: an account of racism and slavery and a fascinating insight into the mind of a 19th century man. But I'm not going to touch upon the more controversial subjects here. What I want to mention is this: surprisingly, from the literary standpoint the book is far from perfect. The characters are awfully cliched, the storyline barely plausible, the writing style a bit rough (though I'm ready to blame this one on translation). But oh, the imagery! [...]
