Description

Reviews:

"I am very happy with this - nice to have a book for just a buck"

"... much better deal than buying a book at the store at full price and deciding you don't want to read it after first three chapters"

* * *

Enjoy a this novel by Jules Verne, published in 1874.

The book tells the adventures of five Americans on an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

The story begins in the American Civil War, during the siege of Richmond, Virginia, the capital of the Confederate States of America.

As famine and death ravage the city, five northern prisoners of war decide to escape by the unusual means of hijacking a balloon.

After flying in stormy weather for several days, the group crash-lands on a cliff-bound, volcanic, unknown (and fictitious) island, about 2, 500 km east of New Zealand.

The five are able to sustain themselves on the island, producing fire, pottery, bricks, nitroglycerin, iron, a simple electric telegraph, a home on a stony cliffside.

Throughout their stay on the island, the group has to overcome bad weather, and eventually adopts and domesticates an orangutan, Jupiter.

Mysterious Island

:
Ten seconds after opening this I discovered two typos, so sloppy that the entire book is suspect. The summary at the beginning of Chapter 8 says this: "Is Cyprus Smith alive?" Cyprus Smith? The principal character is Cyrus Harding. If they can't get this right, goodness knows what else is wrong in this version. I have deleted it from my iPhone.
