    One thought on “The Tunnel”

    1. I have read this book as part of my exam in the German language, before I started being a teacher. The copy I used was written in so called gothic German. I remember I loved to discover the meaning of the characters used. It took weeks before I had finished the book. It was a pity I had to return it to the library. About a year ago I bought a secondhand copy via internet. It was the same edition I had read so many years ago. The theme is the building of a tunnel from the US to the other side of [...]

    2. Беручи до рук цю книгу, я очікував, що вона буде чимось на кшталт Жюль Верну, а виявилося, що Келлерманн пише вельми багатогранно, зворушливо, драматично та захопливо.Сама історія дуже цікава. Побудова трансатлантичного тунелю. Найглобальніший проект людства. Всі нації пра [...]

    3. Ich kann vollkommen nachvollziehen, warum dieses Buch 1913 in den Bestsellerlisten stand. Sehr fluffiger Schreibstil. Geradezu Popliteratur. Mit einem versöhnlichem Ende. Der Held des Ganzen ist zwar durch die Arbeit am Tunnel "verbraucht". Er hat aber noch seine zweite Liebe gefunden. Der Tunnel ist tatsächlich im Buch fertig gebaut worden mehr verrate ich aber auch nicht zum Inhalt.

    4. Miluji Verna, tak jsem byla zvědavá na další historickou sci-fi a musím přiznat, že stylově je tohle úplně něco jiného. Verne je dobrodružné čtivo, tohle mělo asi i ambice sociální - vztah dělník - zaměstnavatel, despekt vůči kapitálu, dělnické hnutí atd.- byť dost nesmělé. Poplatné době je ale zobrazení židovského bankéře Woolfa - z toho čouhá antisemitismus na hony. Samotná vize transatlantického tunelu je jistě zajímavá a co jsem koukala, tak se obj [...]

    5. The Tunnel is based upon a totally obsolete idea but that's what made it interesting to me. Ambition, dedication, High Finance, betrayal, tragedy, personal loss, Capital vs Labor, proto-type underground bullet trains, "Allanite" drills, personal relationships - it's all there and combined well. The Tunnel was made into 4 films (all of varying degrees of interest) as well:Der Tunnel (1915)Der Tunnel (1933)Le Tunnel (1933)Transatlantic Tunnel (1935)(This was my 2nd reading of The Tunnel.)

    6. at some moments was too much techical information, but still found if a very interesting novel not that much of fiction, as more social matters touched
