    " One of the best adventure books of all time! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mitchell Rogers | 2/13/2014

    " I thought it was a great book. Nothing at all like the cheesy old movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 2/12/2014

    " Castaways live for several years on a deserted island and make a colony. Entertaining if absurd. Probably more interesting from the standpoint of studying the society of the age that produced the book. It was interesting because Liz was reading Robinson Crusoe at the same time, which is a realistic view of the castaway position. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mieczyslaw Kasprzyk | 1/17/2014

    " It's ok - entertaining. I found the characters a little unreal - the stars in their eyes for the engineer, the miraculous rescue... and the language got a little artificial at times, but generally it was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Drew | 4/5/2011

    " I thought it was well written with an interesting twist at the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cecil | 4/4/2011

    " Enjoyed the book, it is classic Verne, however this edition contains a introduction that spoils the "mystery" of the island and I made the mistake of reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 4/3/2011

    " This is like the hybrid version of Robinson Crusoe and Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Very interesting reading, a page turner (or in my case-a Kindle button pusher). The last part where Captain Nemo reveals his true identity is somewhat sad, but explains much of the mystery of the island. "

    " It's ok - entertaining. I found the characters a little unreal - the stars in their eyes for the engineer, the miraculous rescue... and the language got a little artificial at times, but generally it was a good read. "

    " Fun followup to "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." I read this thanks to the free download to my Kindle. catching up on my classics, and this was very enjoyable. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
