Trying to recollect my feelings when I read the book for the first time ever seems a bit of a humongous task. But I can't possibly forget the rush of adrenaline and intense emotions, joy and thrill that inhabitants of Lincoln Island and their numerous adventures gave me - be it while hunting game in the forests, or rescuing Captain Harding, building a boat for a voyage to an island close by, fending off an attack by pirates, making priceless discoveries like finding a hint of sulphur in a nearby spring or even a massive block of granite (which was to become their home later on). Every time I have started reading it, I have been sucked right into the core of the tale, the predicament of the castaways and their struggle against the forces of nature and their quest for survival and felt like I was one of them. This book would've been my most favorite Verne novel without any competition whatsoever if I had not read Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea. But being torn between these two books, wondering which one edges past the other in terms of adventure or plot or characters or backdrop or scientific information is a sweet dilemma to have. Will read it again and again and again and again....

The fanciful adv If The Mysterious Island isn't the biggest novel undertaken by someone conditioned with what we today diagnose as Aspberger's Syndrome, it comes close. Published in 1875, Jules Verne's epic castaway tale is loaded with geography, meteorology, astronomy, hydrography, orography, chemistry, geology and by virtue of appearing first in serialized form (as "The Secret of the Island"), the saga runs 193,266 words. Verne doesn't so much stop as he runs out of natural sciences to explore. The fanciful adventure begins above the Pacific Ocean on March 23, 1865 as a balloon is ripped apart by a cyclone. Five Americans and one dog are aboard. The men are railroad engineer Cyrus Smith, journalist Gideon Spilett, freed slave Neb (short for Nebuchadnezzar), sailor Bonadventure Pencroff and 15-year-old Harbert Brown, Pencroff's protege and the son of his former captain. The dog is named Top and they are all prisoners of war, having escaped Confederate controlled Richmond by stealing the balloon. The escapees stay aloft long enough to crash onto the shoreline of a deserted island. After searching for one of their missing mates, the men immediately begin to fortify themselves against the elements. Verne seems positively giddy at the prospect of leaving civilization and using his knowledge of the natural world to build a new one where the footprint of man has never been left. The castaways master the procurement of shelter, fuel, fire, food and tools before exploring their new habitat. Verne builds his dream ecology on the island, which includes a dormant volcano, thick forests, lakes and streams and abundant plant and animal life, with everything from rabbits and foxes to sheep and jaguars. The men note and name all of the island's geographic features, arriving on Lincoln Island as a name for their new home. Led by Smith's engineering ingenuity, the castaways begin to improvise construction and manufacturing projects immediately. Strange things are afoot on Lincoln Island. The missing castaway is found with no recollection of how he came to be deposited on the island. When Top is dragged underwater by a manatee, the creature is slain by an unseen predator. After four months marooned, Pencroff discovers a lead pellet in a bird no more than three months old. The castaways later discover a watertight crate washed ashore with rifles, lead, gunpowder, tools, utensils and books, with no wreckage from a ship found. The Mysterious Island settles between Around the World In Eighty Days and Twenty-Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, not quite science fiction until the final chapters, but a real attempt by Verne to try his hand at something different: a mystery. The 1961 film adaptation took wild liberties with the material, inserting giant creatures (designed by visual effects pioneer Ray Harryhausen) and lady castaways to sell concessions to 20th century boys like myself. One of the antiquated qualities of Verne's writing here is that in three years of being marooned, the men never wear on each other's nerves or even disagree how to tackle a problem. The closest they come to Island Drama is when Pencroff lobbies Smith to let him build a skiff and sail to an island 120 miles away to see what's there. Not only are these men the most stoic, resourceful and stout of heart men in fiction, but they're apparently the friendliest as well! By virtue of Verne publishing this a chapter at a time as a serial, when read in one volume, the novel is a long one. A damn long one. There are far too many chapters devoted to habitat building, exploring, plant cataloging, etc. without any development in the characters or the plot. It's just interesting stuff to Verne. The lead pellet isn't discovered until page 214. It was around that time that I began skimming the book or else I'd still be reading it. Still, Verne's imagination is never in question. If I ever get marooned on a desert island, I hope that Eva Green is with me, but aside from that, I hope I have a copy of this book with me. While the characters are monochromatic and the plot very slow to develop, Verne is clearly a geek for the ages when it comes to the natural sciences and he communicates that ardor clearly, and across many different fields of study. This edition of The Mysterious Island features a 2001 translation by Jordan Stump, associate professor of French at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln and 1875 illustrations by Jules-Descartes Ferat. These are the work of A-class artisans and add tremendously to the pleasure of the book. I recommended it for anyone fascinated by tests of man versus nature. Fans of Verne are in for a treat in the final chapters, while those too young to have read Verne's work should have a good time as well.

    As with many of my pre-Goodreads books, the date read for this one is a best guess, but probably roughly accurate. Although I liked it overall, I didn't rate it as highly as my Goodreads friend Bruce recently did. Simply put, the premise here is that in March 1865, five Unionists (one the black former slave of one of the white escapees, and another a 15-year-old boy) escape from Richmond by stealing a balloon that's been prepared and provisioned for a Confederate mission; but are quickly blown WA As with many of my pre-Goodreads books, the date read for this one is a best guess, but probably roughly accurate. Although I liked it overall, I didn't rate it as highly as my Goodreads friend Bruce recently did. Simply put, the premise here is that in March 1865, five Unionists (one the black former slave of one of the white escapees, and another a 15-year-old boy) escape from Richmond by stealing a balloon that's been prepared and provisioned for a Confederate mission; but are quickly blown WAY off course by a massive hurricane, and five days later wind up on an uncharted island. By the time of the Civil War, of course, balloon flights were not science-fictional. This novel's science fiction element is actually a tie-in with Verne's earlier novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea; but I would say that much of the plot is a descriptive fiction tale of adventure and survival under adverse conditions. (In that respect, it has a lot in common with Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, and readers who like the one might like the other.) That's not out of character for Verne; he didn't think of himself as a writer of "science fiction" (the concept as such didn't exist then), but as a writer of "Extraordinary Voyages," of which this is one, and he was as interested in describing the extraordinary wonders of the actual world as in speculating about the extraordinary marvels he believed science could achieve. Verne was a practicing Roman Catholic. To a greater extent than in his other works (at least the ones I've read), he speaks here in his third-person narration about the providential care of God; and our castaways here several times both pray to God for help and acknowledge and thank Him for blessings received. Bruce, in his review, discerns a deliberate symbolism here in which the island stands for the world, whose inhabitants are watched over and supplied by a beneficent Deity. As an intentional symbolism, I wouldn't rule it out, though it's subtle enough that it didn't suggest itself to me when I read the book. In any case, it could certainly be a legitimate reader-response criticism. (And given the geological instability of the island, one could extend this symbolism to include Christian eschatology --but no spoilers here!) But this doesn't imply that the castaways are or can be passive; on the contrary, for them as for the inhabitants of this terrestrial island in space, benefiting from the resources they're blessed with takes cooperation, hard work, courage, and technological know-how and ingenuity. Fortunately, they have these in abundance! Despite the Goodreads reference to their needing to build a "society," this isn't really sociologically-oriented science fiction. Our characters have to work together, pull their weight and share; but you don't develop much of a "society" with five people in it. Their conflicts and challenges are basically with nature and with physical processes, rather than interpersonal. Verne is part of a literary tradition that tends to be more gadget-oriented than people-oriented; and this shows here. My literary preferences are more drawn to the human element, rather than the physical-technological. That accounts for my lower rating for this than for other SF works that focus more on character. For me, this was often a less than riveting read, though readers more fascinated by learning about survival techniques and do-it-yourself technology might react differently. The prose style per se wasn't problematical; I found this more readable than some of the author's other works in that respect. Of course, this requires a caveat: international copyright didn't exist in Verne's day, so many English-language editions of his work were pirated, and he was very poorly served by most of the unauthorized translators, who took vast liberties. So with most 19th-century translations, you're never 100% sure that you're actually reading anything very similar to Verne's original. :-( (The Airmont edition I read provides no information about what translation was used.) As a History major, I was put off by the inaccuracies in the way the Richmond setting of March 1865 was depicted. Verne was writing about nine years after the war; but he obviously either didn't follow the contemporary accounts of it very closely, didn't remember them well, or both. (And he didn't take time to research the subject, either!) Richmond was never "besieged" by Grant or anybody else; and a Union prisoner would not have been free to walk around the city. (Union officers were held in Richmond; but they were confined to Libby Prison.) Also, the tie-in with Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea which I mentioned above has some chronological inconsistencies with the earlier book that I noted at the time I read this one, but which are hard to explain without a spoiler. But on the positive side, I don't recall anything invidious or derogatory in the portrayal of the black character, Neb; and that's a plus not always found in the literature of that era!

    Last year I participated with a group of friends in doing a Secret Santa. This was the book that my Santa gave me (as well as Gulliver's Travels). I think it was because of the fact I was moaning about the lack of any Verne on Maui. I am SOOOOO glad my santa chose this book for me. It was amazing. Yes there were some dry parts, unless you like painstaking detail about how to make Iron or Bricks, but even they were quickly dispatched, and could be skimmed without really mising anything.

Verne's Characters rank in loveability with Characters such as Jim Hawkins,Rhett Butler,Huck Fynn and Tom Sawyer, as a matter of fact there were not many characters I did not like,other than the ones you were supposed to dislike. For me,IMHO, This Classic ranks right up there with The Count of Monte Christo, Great Expectations ETC. I have already read Journey to the Centre of the Earth and again in my humble opinion this outranks it by miles! If you are not familiar with Verne I think this qwould be a great one to start with. And no matter how knowledgeable you are, the end will leave you saying WTF. However, all the Mysteries of said Mysterious Island are dealt with and you are not left with the feeling of ok now what happens.

    Finished it a few days ago. This book has restored my faith in reading. It's the second best book I've ever read. I've rarely read anything that has kept me spellbound from start to finish. I think I'd like to start reading it again. For what is seen as an adventure book, it's mind blowingly in-depth, overly interesting and so well written, it has taught me many lessons in writing. I never new Jules Verne was so good. I already miss each character and even the animals. Poor Jup. Wow wow wow.

And by the time you reach the end of this long tedious book, after having learnt the names of all the hills, rivers, lakes, bays, forests; botanical names for all the trees, animals and insects; mineral and chemical names for every lump of rock they trip over – the whole island blows up and vanishes into the ocean. A waste of time…

Quelle erreur ç'aurait été de me fier à mes craintes ! Je n'aurais troqué la version intégrale pour rien au monde. Je n'ai rien à redire à ce roman, certes il y a de longues descriptions topographiques et scientifiques auxquelles je n'ai pas toujours tout compris, mais ça donne surtout ce côté très naturaliste au livre. Bien que les hommes soient échoués sur une île, on sent vraiment qu'on est au XIXe siècle avec cette passion pour la science, la faune, la flore, l'ingénierie ... Il y a aussi le "mauvais" côté d'être à cette époque, avec parfois des façons de penser qui ne passeraient plus de nos jours et qui choquent les yeux contemporains, mais c'est bien ça qui est intéressant aussi ! L'histoire est passionnante, les héros sont formidables, si courageux, volontaires et bienveillants ! Et le suspens augmente progressivement tout au long du livre jusqu'à être insoutenable, et quelle fin ! Je ne me serais pas attendue à un tel dénouement, quel choc ça a été ! J'ai adoré, c'est le genre de livre que je sers contre moi en le refermant tant il m'a touchée (oui je suis un peu dingue). Je suis vraiment triste de quitter ces formidables colons, et c'est clair et net que je me replongerai dans un Jules Verne en 2016 !

    Che Verne sia oggi un autore abbandonato mi pare innegabile; lo vedi ancora sbucare qua e là negli scaffali dei libri per ragazzi, ridotto e illustrato, in faticosa competizione con la fornitissima produzione contemporanea.

Questo stupendo romanzo di avventura, mistero e ingegno umano ha per fortuna una pubblicazione "adulta" per i tipi di Marsilio, un bellissimo paperback che non mi son lasciato sfuggire. Cosa non piace più di questo autore, perchè ha perduto il suo antico fascino il transalpino Giulio che sfidava Salgari nelle librerie di un tempo? Mah! Mistero più arcano di quello che nasconde la remota isola di Lincoln, luogo fuori dalle rotte conosciute del Pacifico in cui un gruppo di naufraghi atterra con una mongolfiera, in fuga dalla Guerra Civile americana. Le gesta dell'ingegnere Cyrus Smith col suo labrador, il marinaio Pencroff, il giornalista Gedeon Spilett, lo schiavo liberato Nab e il giovane Harbert sono probabilmente uscite dal mito collettivo, restando nello scrigno prezioso dei pochi che ancora oggi ne ripercorrono successi e fallimenti. Se questo è stato un "libro per ragazzi" d'altri tempi beh, mi vien da dire, che ragazzi in gamba si son formati! Oltre al sapore dell'avventura infatti il romanzo è un compendio misurato e attento di biologia, chimica, scienze, ingegneria, medicina, agricoltura, navigazione e chi più ne ha più ne metta, mai prolisso ma fuso e saldato efficacemente alla narrazione. Un capolavoro immortale con piega finale degli eventi ampiamente spoilerata in lungo e in largo nella rete; io non sono troppo sensibile e me ne sono fatto una ragione, ma in effetti può essere fastidioso scoprire il mistero dell'isola già a inizio lettura quindi il mio consiglio è: se volete intraprendere anche voi questa magnifica avventura, fatelo senza cercare troppo sul web, wikipedia inclusa.

No hay nada que estos hombres no sepan hacer, en serio. Cyrus Smith, ingeniero, es presentado como una enciclopedia humana capaz de resolver cualquier problema. Dejando a un lado la reticencia natural ante tales especímenes humanos superiores, La isla misteriosa es una lectura sumamente entretenida, y me ha recordado mi época verniana, cuando disfrutaba de Viaje al centro de la tierra o Cinco semanas en globo, con un argumento relativamente sencillo y comprensible. La creatividad del autor es puesta a prueba y sale invicta. He disfrutado, sobre todo, esas incógnitas que, tarde o temprano, son respondidas de forma bastante inusual. PD: Esta lectura amerita leer dos libros que la preceden.

At the time I first read it (I was 9 or 10) I didn't miss so much the lack of a feminine character to spice up the plot.

    Jules Verne fuels the imagination! Verne had a vision of a Hollow Earth. Fascinating topic. Lots of esoteric knowledge out there in the public domain, if one knows where to look. Great books. Tolkien also had Middle Earth in his books and of course Alice went down the rabbit hole. Maybe that is where the elves and dwarves live! Lol!🐯👍

    J'ai beaucoup de mal à émettre un avis sur ce livre. L'écriture est belle, l'histoire est bien construite, c'est très intelligent et je me suis délectée du vocabulaire riche et si étranger aux récits contemporains. Cependant, durant plusieurs centaines de pages, rien ne me poussait à tourner la page, et même si cette impression s'est petit à petit effacée (pour franchement disparaître lors de la troisième partie), si j'ai globalement été prise par l'histoire, ce n'est pas un coup de cœur.

J'ai étonnamment beaucoup aimé les descriptions, les explications scientifiques que j'ai trouvées passionnantes, mais qui en font plus un manuel qu'un roman à certains moments. C'est d'ailleurs probablement la raison pour laquelle j'ai eu du mal à m'immerger dans l'histoire et à vivre aux côtés des colons de l'île. C'est néanmoins ce que j'appelle un très bon livre, je suis contente d'être arrivée au bout, il me semble qu'il s'agit d'un classique incontournable. J'ai presque envie de me plonger dans un autre Jules Verne pour vérifier si c'est l'auteur ou le livre qui me laisse un peu en dehors du récit.

    I first read this book as a young boy and loved it! The adventure, the science, the making something out of practically nothing, the surviving the elements - as a young boy with a real desire for adventure and an interest in science I was hooked. I thought that Jules Verne was the greatest dude to have ever drawn breath. I quickly started a campaign to convince others how great this book was. My attempts to sway others was to no avail... no one else was interested. I think this book was a Christ I first read this book as a young boy and loved it!

(My copy of the book has an island and a hot air ballon on it). I really don't remember how I came to own it but I am glad that I found it. Funny sidenote: I once had a girlfriend and we had the crazy notion of reading the others favorite book of all time. I ended up struggling through The Hobbit (out of love of course) and she started but just couldn't make it through Mysterious Island. I guess I should read this book and see if I still like it 20+ years later...

    L'île mystérieuse m'a réconciliée avec Jules Vernes. Je ne pensais pas lire un de ces romans depuis que j'en avais été dégoutée à 10/12 ans. Et quelle surprise ! Le roman se compose en trois parties retraçant l'arrivée des colons sur l'île Lincoln puis leur survie dans un milieu parfois hostile (éléments naturels imprévisibles, animaux sauvages menaçants,...).

C'est avec joie et curiosité que l'on suit les aventures de Smith, Pencroff, Harbert, Spilett et Nab (personnage mis en retrait, c'est dommage), qui n'ont pas leur pareil pour tirer parti de ce que cette île a à leur offrir. Les intrigues, les mystères, les aventures s'enchaînent jusqu'à la fin étonnante de ce roman pour le plus grand plaisir du lecteur !

    Pour être honnête j'ai étais très déçue ! Je trouve l'idée du livre très bonne et l'histoire en elle même m'a plu mais moi qui suis habituellement une fan de classique et particulièrement des récits d'aventures et de naufragés, j'ai trouvée que celle ci avait beaucoup trop de défauts.

Qu'ils parviennent à construire toute sorte de choses à la limite passe encore mais de ce niveau là et en si peu de temps (3 ans n'est pas si long) ca paraît complètement improbable. Un autre point sur lequel j'ai été réticente a été le petit massacre de la faune locale. Je trouve que c'est un des aspects négatifs de la colonisation et qu'il a un peu trop été mis en avant à mon goût dans le livre. Manger de la tortue n'était pas à ce point vital pour les colons de mon point de vue. Et pour finir une grande question : l'auteur c'est il lancé le défis personnel d'écrire le plus de mots possibles ? Le récit est à mon avis surdetaillé (un exemple pour faire bien comprendre une idée ça passe, 22 ca commence à faire beaucoup) et beaucoup trop technique. Je suis peu être la seule mais personnellement pour la plupart des objets qu'ils ont construits je n'ai pas compris un traitre mot et surtout je n'ai absolument pas pu me représenter la chose. Toutes ces énumérations rendent l'histoire lente et lourde et m'ont un peu gâché le plaisir de la lecture. Mais je dois quand même bien reconnaître une chose à Jules Verne, il a trouvé un moyen simple et efficace de promouvoir ces autres livres à travers celui ci ! (Celles et ceux qui ont fini l'histoire comprendront)

    Oh my God. Some dudes are castaway on this island and I cannot put real words together to explain why I wanted to kill this book. So here are some select Twitters from when I was reading it: * I find it a little horrifying that the castaways in Verne's 'Mysterious Island' never use bone for anything. Too savage? [though they end up using some whale bone, but that's pretty white so it's okay] * They didn't use bone to tip arrows! They waited until the dog found a porcupine! How are clothes mended?! Oh my God.

The Mysterious Island castaways finally tan some leather, but not the rabbits. No. Koalas. * Yeah, I don't see how reading the "prequels" of Mysterious Island would help any. Pretty vaguely interwoven, there. * Mysterious Island, has not made me want to expand my Verne reading. I mean, thanks for summarising '20,000 Leagues' and all so now I don't have to read it—but still. This book is on my shit list. My book shit list also names 'Little House on the Prairie', which I couldn't even finish at the age of nine. Good company for it, I think. * The Terror and Unpredictability of Nature overwhelms Industry, okay. Whatever, Verne.

    This book was recommended by the 2012 Book Lover's Page-A-Day Calendar. Entry was for January 2, 2012. Wow. Let me start by saying that I'm already pretty familiar with the work of Jules Verne, having gotten pretty well addicted to an abridged children's version of Around The World in 80 Days back when I was eight or nine years old. Since then, I've read the actual unabridged version and have read both 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea and A Journey To The Center of The Earth more times than I can coun This book was recommended by the 2012 Book Lover's Page-A-Day Calendar.

I am, without question, a tremendous fan of the novels of that era and can rank Jules Verne up there with my favorites. With that said, I was not expecting to be so utterly blown away by The Mysterious Island. More than a couple of reviewers on this site have given this book bad reviews, citing it as unrealistic, laughable, or wordy. Well, those people are haters. It’s a novel from the 1800’s—of course it’s wordy! It’s a novel about desert island survival—of course it’s unrealistic! Stop hating, folks! The Mysterious Island is a masterwork by a master writer. I guarantee I will be reading this one again.

    A little while ago, I picked up The Mysterious Island mainly because it was one of the only books by Jules Verne that I knew almost nothing about. I took great care not to learn in advance what made the island so mysterious or really, anything about the plot at all. This book is at its heart a standard "shipwrecked" adventure. The main characters are not really shipwrecked per se, but may as well be. The majority of the story deals with their trials and tribulations surviving on the island. Where A little while ago, I picked up The Mysterious Island mainly because it was one of the only books by Jules Verne that I knew almost nothing about. I took great care not to learn in advance what made the island so mysterious or really, anything about the plot at all. This book is at its heart a standard "shipwrecked" adventure. The main characters are not really shipwrecked per se, but may as well be. The majority of the story deals with their trials and tribulations surviving on the island. Where I was intrigued by, say, The Swiss Family Robinson's trials to survive, The Mysterious Island felt rather absurd. These castaways not only were able to survive very comfortably with almost nothing (they did not have a ship of supplies to start with, as the Swiss Family did), but were able to manufacture nicely advanced pieces of technology in short periods. When they started a fire with a couple of lenses from watches, I thought them clever. When they created a forge and manufactured crude steel, I was a bit skeptical. When they created nitroglycerine safely using only natural materials found on the island, I openly scoffed. And when they created a working telegraph (starting by building batteries from scratch), I just laughed. This was not the sort of book you could read and fantasize yourself doing the same in their position. Instead you find yourself wondering if people have somehow degenerated that much intellectually since Verne's time. I felt comfortably reassured to find Isaac Asimov scoffing over the same points in the afterword. Despite the absurdity of it, and the lack of any character conflict (all of the castaways are almost insipidly cheerful throughout), Verne does a good job in putting together a mystery that is intriguing, and kept me turning pages despite the rather dense writing style. Unfortunately, without giving any spoilers, I felt the payoff to the mystery to be unfulfilling and ultimately distracting from the plot of the book. The ending of the book was the most disappointing part. It wrapped up reasonably, but it was extremely abrupt and felt very rushed after the previous pace of the book. Overall I did enjoy reading this. But I would not recommend it to others without noting its flaws, as some are likely to be disappointed.
