Jules Vernes at his best!,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Mysterious Island (Scribner Classics) (Gebundene Ausgabe)
I'm 14 and just recently checked this out at the library. I assure you I'm not that avid of a reader. But this copy being 500 pages long, I wouldn't put it down since page 335. The book is about 5 Civil War prisoners in Richmond. The escape in a balloon and find themselves stranded on this island. Adventure, wonder, tragedy, and humor ensue. Unfortunately I couldn't imagine out a map, but Verne's descriptions were beautiful, and very imaginative. This is also a very character-driven book. You could even love Top, their dog. It hooked me on as well. I felt very satisfied when they established Granite House, I smiled when Pencroft was presented a cigar, almost cried when Herbert was shot, and did cry for a few seconds when Nemo ... and one of Verne's other beautiful creations, the Nautilus, an alter-ego of Nemo ... below. Words can't describe how good this book it is, and I reccomend it to everyone.
