A Fantasy of Dr Ox, Paperback / softback Book

A Fantasy of Dr Ox Paperback / softback

Part of the Alma Classics 101 Pages series

Description

"In the somnolent Flemish town of Quiquendone disagreements are unheard of, courtships might last a decade and not a ripple of activity can be seen at all.

But when the mysterious Dr Ox and his assistant Ygene move into the neighbourhood, strange things begin to happen: animals become aggressive, fruits grow huge in size, plants climb more vigorously and tempers flare up, leading the once phlegmatic townsfolk to bitter confrontations and pushing them to the brink of all-out violence. Verne, the acclaimed author of immortal tales of adventure and early science fiction, can be seen here in a different light, regaling readers of all ages with a light-hearted satire that, in its warnings about the dangers of scientific experimentation, has a clear and troubling resonance with our times."
