Richard Pours, Philadelphia resident and new college grad, is excited to find his first job. But despite his 4.0 GPA, master's degree, and secret photographic memory, no one will hire him--until a mysterious letter arrives offering him $300,000 to be the recorder on an expedition. Stranger yet, when he arrives for his interview, he doesn't have to convince anyone that he is right for the job.

After his unusual interview, Richard is whisked away to meet his travel companions. An impressive mix of doctors specializing in a variety of sciences--and a musician--will accompany Richard on his expedition, which will take them to lands unseen since the dawn of time. The voyage has barely begun when Richard discovers that he's not the only one aboard who has unique abilities--and the uncanny similarities between him and his colleagues don't end there.

This book was kind of hard for me to get into at first, as it's mostly just larger description paragraphs, with very little dialogue between characters. In addition to that, it just kind of started off slow, and didn't really answer any questions until the end (to clarify, all of my questions were eventually answered). If not for these things, I would have given the book four stars. Around page 80 it started to get pretty interesting, and from there it just got more interesting, despite the continued lack of much dialogue, though that did get a slightly better, too. Overall, I thought the story was pretty creative; it was confusing at times, talking about different timelines and using scientific terms and such, but the concept of it being dictated to Benjamin Franklin by Richard was pretty cool, once I figured out that that's what occurred. Lastly, I want to share my favorite quote from the book, which is actually from the introduction; Tom Ford says "All I write is what might be, and it is up to the reader to imagine what may be possible or real". That quote fits the book very well, and I think it would be beneficial for readers to remember it while reading The Verne Legacy. Note: I received this book for free through Goodreads Giveaways.
