What reading level is A Girdle Round the Earth Home Letters From Foreign Lands book?
To quickly assess the difficulty of the text, read a short excerpt:

22/ science ; burned and dispersed all these collected books ; driven out by fire and mob the teachers and their students ; denuded were their halls and courts, and laid waste their gardens, groves, and walks. The sun went down, — set behind clouds of bigotry and darkness, behind the waters of a deep and muddy sea of ignorance and superstition. The learned men were branded as sorcerers closely leagued with hell. Those who would heal the sick by herb or draught were cut down as dogs. The Church ...assumed all knowledge and administered all law ; settled all points of science with chosen Bible texts ; cured all disease with pious relics. What could not be done by prayer, or laying on of pious hands, or bits of sainted dead, or splinters from Calvary's cross or crib of Bethlehem, was past all cure, and all attempt to accomplish cure by doctors' ways was but defiant blasphemy.
No wonder that the sun went down in blackest of all nights, when such an ignorant crew as that which then had gained power in this fair land could exercise its strength.
