      I can t remember the number of times I have re read this Verne masterpiece and discovered something new every time I had In fact, my book has become so frayed around the edges over the years that I fear I won t be able to open it any without being afraid of ruining the pages or the cover for good 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 [...]

      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 adventur [...]

      As with many of my pre 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 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 massiv [...]

      J avais quelques r serves en entamant ce livre j avais pas mal d a priori sur l criture tr s descriptive de Jules Verne , mais j ai finalement beaucoup aim L le myst rieuse L histoire nous accroche assez vite malgr une premi re partie un peu longuette , beaucoup de myst res apparaissent les uns apr s les autres et la fin est vraiment surprenante et ne d oit pas Le seul b mol que j aurais est que cela manque d motion, notamment au niveau des personnages Ces naufrag s sont tellement optimistes, r [...]

      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 Character [...]

      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.

    10. James Field on said:

      This is a story about the artist not his art The plot is practically nonexistent, contrived purely so Jules Verne can demonstrate his extensive scientific knowledge.Four men are air balloon wrecked on an uncharted, uninhabited island in the pacific ocean The island has every vegetable, animal, and mineral resource to be found anywhere else in the world The four castaways, who never once disagree with each other or say a cross word, colonize the island with nothing than their knowledge, intellig [...]

      Absolument g nial J ai bien aim comment le livre monte en intensit au fil des parties au d but le r cit est tr s descriptif, ce que j ai par ailleurs trouv passionnant toutes ces techniques de survie, toute la description de la faune, de la flore et la g ographie, g nial , puis l action est de plus en plus pr sente et le livre se termine magistralement J ai d faire une pause de quelques minutes la fin de l avant dernier chapitre, pour reprendre mon souffle et m en remettre avant d entamer le der [...]

      Alerte coup de coeur Comme je suis heureuse que ce livre ait t choisi pour la lecture de janvier du Club de Lecture MS Pourtant, au d part, les 800 pages m ont un peu effray e, non pas que je n aime pas les pav s, au contraire, mais j avais peur que le style de Jules Verne m ennuie Quelle erreur aurait t de me fier mes craintes Je n aurais troqu la version int grale pour rien au monde Je n ai rien redire ce roman, certes il y a de longues descriptions topographiques et scientifiques auxquelles j [...]

      my favorite among 40 books I ve read by Jules Verne read count 4 although not recently An example of how scientific knowledge dramatically increases the chances of survival on a deserted island Probably one of the reasons I ve chosen a career as an engineer, I like to take things apart to see how they work, and i also love the satisfaction of fixing something that is broken The four stranded technology wizards recreate the industrial revolution from scatch among the pristine tropical paradise At [...]

      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

    16. Virginie on said:

      J ai beaucoup de mal mettre un avis sur ce livre L criture est belle, l histoire est bien construite, c est tr s intelligent et je me suis d lect e du vocabulaire riche et si tranger aux r cits contemporains.Cependant, durant plusieurs centaines de pages, rien ne me poussait tourner la page, et m me si cette impression s est petit petit effac e pour franchement dispara tre lors de la troisi me partie , si j ai globalement t prise par l histoire, ce n est pas un coup de c ur J ai tonnamment beauc [...]

      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 Nor have they [...]

      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 Christmas presen [...]

      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 times than I can count I am [...]

      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 [...]

      Une premi re partie interminable avec des descriptions et des termes techniques qui m ont un peu assomm es La seconde partie devient plus int ressante mais j ai eu du mal m attacher aux personnages beaucoup trop lisses et trop parfaits Tout semble trop simple, un peu dommage.Enfin une troisi me partie avec de l action Beaucoup de rebondissements trop et la r v lation tant attendue Jules Verne a t tr s malin la dessus.Seulement 3 5 car je n ai pas r ussi me prendre r ellement dans l histoire J ai [...]

      Apr s un mois et avec quelques jours de retard je termine la version int grale de l le myst rieuse Malgr quelques longueurs par moment je dois admettre que j ai appr ci la plume de Jules Verne J ai aim la beaut de l criture que l on trouve en lisant un classique, l rudition de Jules Verne l ments qui parfois manquent la litt rature contemporaine Je me suis donc embarqu e dans l aventure avec nos naufrag s sur cette le myst rieuse Finalement j ai t surprise par la d couverte du g nie de l le et l [...]

    26. Mathilde on said:

      Toute la premi re partie ne m a pas convaincue Cinq hommes sur une le, ils n ont pas vraiment beaucoup de sentiments pour des naufrag s, ce sont un peu des machines Il y a trop de termes techniques pour moi Par contre la deuxi me partie m a beaucoup int ress , du myst re, de l aventure Bref je suis partag e la fin de cette lecture.

      N tant pas une lectrice de classiques, j avais un peu d appr hension en ouvrant ce livre, surtout dans sa version int grale Et quelle jolie surprise L histoire est prenante, l criture fluide et facile lire, le livre est plein d humour et le myst re nous tient en haleine jusqu aux derni res pages
