Présentation de l'éditeur

Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828 – March 24, 1905) was a French author who pioneered the science fictiongenre. He is best known for his novels Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1870), A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travels before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author in the world (after Agatha Christie). Some of his books have also been made into live-action and animated films and television shows. Verne is often referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction", a title sometimes shared with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells. -wikipedia

Is Mysterious Island Verne's best novel? 19 juin 2002
Par Joanna Daneman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Many of Verne's novels have become cultural icons for Americans though Verne was French and we read him in translation. Nevertheless, his philosophy that enlightened good will and scientific advancement would save society is so close to American idealism, he seems much more American than almost any of his contemporaries.

Everyone is familiar with Around the World in 80 Days and 20,000 Leagues. For some reason, The Mysterious Island is not read as widely. Yet, in my opinion, it is Verne's best and most rewarding novel.

The opening of Myserious Island reads a bit like a serious version of "Wizard of Oz." Cyrus, Pencroft, Herbert, Neb and Gideon, and a dog named Top make a daring escape from a Civil War prison in a balloon, but the balloon is blown way off course to an uncharted volcanic island. These men are worthy souls; Captain Cyrus is an inspiring leader, Pencroft, an earthy but hardworking sailor. Gideon is kind of a "everyman" -- observant, strong and resourceful and loving, and Herbert a young, knowlegeable naturalist. These men and their dog Top conquer the island's challenges and make the very best out of their isolation on the small island. But are they prepared for the surprises the island has for them--and the ultimate surprise in the second half of the book. The suspense keeps the reader turning the pages through a great deal of descriptive information about nature, chemistry, physics and engineering. This is classic Verne and what really put the Science in Science Fiction.

One reason Mysterious Island may not have developed the strong audience of the other Verne novels is that there is so much detail and scientific discussion. That is rough going if you have little interest in such subjects. There are abridged versions that cut a lot of the description, but frankly, the science is what I love best about the book. How Cyrus and company make nitroglycerin and use it to reshape their island home is one of my favorite chapters in sci-fi literature.

If you liked Swiss Family Robinson as a child, you would surely enjoy Mysterious Island. It's one of Verne's best works and deserves to be read.

Probably my favorite book... 27 décembre 2000
Par Nickolay Stanev - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I bet nobody would care about whatever I have to say about this book, but I just had to share my opinion. Around the age of 10 I started reading a lot - mostly adventure books. My grandparents had a huge library and I just loved digging in there and reading whatever looked interesting to me at the time. One day my grandfather came up to me with a smile, his hands behind his back, and just stood there, looking expectantly at me. So I asked "What?" He said, "Guess what I found?" Of course, I had no clue. "That Jules Verne book I was telling you about." And he pulled out a rather beat up copy of "The Mysterious Island" that he had thought long lost. I dumped whatever I was reading at the time and dove right into it. I believe I finished it in two or three days... It is definitely one of the most interesting books ever written. I reread it a couple of times since then and every time it was as interesting. Well, almost... It is just one of those books that hit you on the head like a ton of bricks the first time you read them. You want to get to the next page as fast as possible, eager to reach the end and see what happens to the characters and at the same time afraid that the book might, to your greatest distress, end. All in all, this is one of my favorite books of all time. It belongs to that category of adventure (I'm using the term somewhat loosely here) books that should be read by every teenager and all those adults who didn't read them as teenagers - Alexandre Dumas' "The Three Musketeers", Karl May's "Winnetou", Capt. Mayne Reid's "The Headless Horseman", Walter Scott's "Ivanhoe", Rafael Sabatini's "The Sea Hawk", Henryk Sienkiewicz's "In Desert & Wilderness", Rafaelo Giovagnoli's "Spartacus", Edgar Rice Burroughs' "Tarzan of the Apes", James Fenimore Cooper's "The Last Of The Mohicans", Liselotte Wellskopf-Henrich's "The Sons Of The Great Bear" (never seen this one in English and I'm not sure about the spelling of the author's name or the translation in English that the book would get...) - all of the above books that I have felt compelled to read between 3 and 15 (yep, count me crazy) times.
So, I have read about 10-15 Jules Verne books and this one is by far the best. By the way, those who haven't yet should check out "Captain Grant's Children" - one of the sort-of prequels to this book. I never see it mentioned among his works, but it is another gripping adventure. I have only seen a Russian edition of this book, though. Might not have been translated in English...
Anyway, I think I should read "The Mysterious Island" again these days...

A Textbook on How to Start A Civilization from Scratch! 28 juin 2000
Par Henry R. Kujawa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
A very difficult yet satisfying book to read, this build slowly from utter bleakness to an enthralling sense of wonder. Having seen the 1961 movie, I was astonished at how LITTLE of the book actually made it to the screen-- and there were NO monsters here! Ironically, the trained orangutan-butler that would have been at home in a Disney film was one of the things left out of the film version. Having been surprised that the book 20,000 LEAGUES actually left Captain Nemo's background a total mystery right to the end, Verne finally reveals his true identity here-- and one can tell nobody in Hollywood's been reading this book. While it basically stands on its own, Verne's MYSTERIOUS ISLAND is actually a sequel to 2 previous books: 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, and the more obscure CAPTAIN GRANT'S CHILDREN, the latter of which I believe served as the inspiration for the Disney film IN SEARCH OF THE CASTAWAYS! With Verne's interest in minute detail, I came away feeling this book could serve as not only a rousing adventure story, but as a wonderful manual for anyone wanting to start a new civilization completely from scratch.

Excellent 29 juin 2000
Par "captain_flint" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I think this is the best book Verne has ever written. It has adventure, mystery, suspense, survival, and science fiction all mixed up into one book. It is about Cyrus harding, the engineer, Neb, his loyal servant, Gidion Spilett, the reporter, Jack Pencroft, the spontaneous sailor, Herbert, a 13 year old boy, and the faithful dog Top, who get dropped in a hot air ballon on a remote island. The soon begin forming there own "mini-america" on the island. But strange things start happening - like when top is almost killed my a strange animal, but the animal suddenly dies from a knife wound, and when Pencroft finds a bullet in a wild pig. Who did these things appear on a uninhabited island? Hint- Read 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea first

Remember MacGyver? 16 août 2002
Par phantomfan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
How he used to make an engine run with duct tape and a shoe string, or make a bomb from bleach and a rusty nail?
He kept coming to mind as I was reading this incredible book, as the characters, stranded on an island with absolutely nothing, accomplished such amazing feats as draining a lake, making a home, building a ship, making an elevator, and a great many other things. There is excitement, suspense (what IS going on on this mysterious island??), and wonderful, likeable characters. Not a real well-known Verne book, but fortunately still in print, and one of his best and most entertaining.
(Incidentally, if you want a children's version of the same story, try to find "A Long Vacation" by Jules Verne, which is extremely similar in plot, but with younger characters and for a younger audience - very charming!)
By the way, please do read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea first, if you have not already done so. Evidently, Verne assumed that everyone had when he wrote this novel.
Great reading!
