Great work from Verne!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mysterious Island (Signet Classics) (Taschenbuch)
Technically, MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is Jules Verne's sequel to his brilliant 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. In reality, the only part of MYSTERIOUS ISLAND that really makes it a seqeul is the fact that a few pages are used to reveal the secrets of 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. Except for those few pages, MYSTERIOUS ISLAND stands on its own. You can read and understand MYSTERIOUS ISLAND even if you have not read 20,000 THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA. However, since both of the books are so good, I recommend reading both of them anyway.
MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is about several people who are stranded on a deserted island. Throughout the course of the book, these people use their minds to develop technology to keep themselves alive and to make their lives better. This book is very rich and imaginative with many ideas. Also a lot of the story concerns the people finding different animals on the island. Basically, whenever a new kind of animal was discovered, the primary concern was how to capture it and kill it and eat it. I myself am a vegetarian, but I still was able to relate to and appreciate the joy and happiness that the people had anytime they found a new kind of animal. Anyway, this book is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it.
