Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mysterious Island (Signet Classics) (Taschenbuch)
In the tradition of Robinson Crusoe but unmistakenly Jules Verne, Mysterious Island depicts human ingenuity, resilience and nature.
Harding, with his crew, step by step recreates civilization in its purest form. That includes the element of human organization in its simplest and most effective form. The society is made up of members who are earnest, friendly and selfless and a leader who is trustworty, compassionate and unassuming.
Jules Verne, throughout his books, portrayed his main characters as decent and noble. His personal view may be that all humans are decent underneath. Only when subjected to ills of over-civilization, they become destructive.
Mysterious Island is not only enjoyable with interesting plot with scientific support, but it is also uplifting in human spirit. I highly recommend this book to readers of all ages.
