The narrative proceeds to build up our expectations of a spectacular "revelation" as only Verne can. At the same time the novel is very scientific and detailed.

He jests good-naturedly here, as indeed he does in several of his later books, with the vast fortunes, the 'hundred millions' commonly ascribed to Americans.

So, too, we have the exaggerated picture of the gilded youth, utterly unacquainted with the stern realities of life, pining to be a Robinson Crusoe on a desert island. The deliberate preparation for him of the uncomfortable situation he has desired, along with all the Crusoe incidents, would have in itself been a merry farce.

Il ne manquait rien dans la vie quotidienne. Il existe des alternatives raisonnables. An interesting and appealing adventure novel. The mysterious island An interesting and appealing adventure novel This is a very well written, interesting and appealing adventure novel, where an intensive research work is revealed. The author transmits a very good knowledge on life sciences, chemistry, physics and engineering. The novel shows how much good work can be achieved when six men join their efforts and knowledge in good terms with neither jealousy, nor envy.
In addition the author makes a wink to the reader by using elements of another of his novels: I recommend this book to all people that like to read an author which is a pioneer in science fiction. I recommend it highly!
It should be required reading in schools. The hero in this book is not fast with a gun, he's not a clever detective or a black belt in Karate--he's knowledgeable! We need more books that place a value on skills that benefit society.
The hero saves himself and his comrades--a football star would have died on the island. No offense intended, football stars, you're good for entertainment. The book contains factual knowledge, based on a lot of research. It would be beneficial to read about Captain Nemo first--this is in a way a sequel, although it doesn't become apparent until the very end Well, I love just anything by Jules Verne, and reading it in the original French makes it all the better.
