Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, <i>The Mysterious Island</i> is considered by many to be Jules Verne&#8217;s masterpiece. &#8220;Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump&#8221; (<i>Kirkus Reviews</i>), 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&#8217;s secret.
