Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, The Mysterious Island is considered by many to be Jules Verne's masterpiece. "Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump" (Kirkus Reviews), here is the enthralling tale of five men and a dog who land in a balloon on a faraway, fantastic island of bewildering goings-on and their struggle to survive as they uncover the island's secret.

Jules Verne was definitely ahead of his time and this novel is purely science fiction at one of its bests. The plot develops even up until the end and keeps you on your toes! You might want to read "20 000 Leagues Under The Sea" first because this book does reference it.

I loved it, it has everything except the girl the heroe falls for. A little sci- fi feel, but a surprise ending.
