The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived.
I think it’s by far the best of the three – it’s one of my favourites of Verne and makes the other 2 look completely superficial.
It was one of my favourites as a child but now I really want to read it as an adult as I think it will be even better.
Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, The Mysterious Island is considered by many to be Jules Verne’s masterpiece. “Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump” (Kirkus Reviews), here is the enthralling tale of five men and a dog who land in a balloon on a faraway, fantastic island of bewildering goings-on and their struggle to survive as they uncover the island’s secret.
