"In Jules Verne's classic adventure tale, a hot air balloon is swept off course only to land on a faraway desert island. In the midst of the American Civil War, five prisoners hijack a hot air balloon to make their escape. Caught in the winds of a violent storm, the balloon is blown far, far away from its point of departure in Richmond, Virginia. When the craft crash-lands, its passengers find themselves castaways on an exotic island. Here they are forced to contend with wild animals, pirates, and an active volcano--in a fight for their very survival. Beloved for well over a century, " The Mysterious Island " is an enduring adventure classic by the masterful Jules Verne. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.".

Jules Verne was definitely ahead of his time and this novel is purely science fiction at one of its bests. The plot develops even up until the end and keeps you on your toes! You might want to read "20 000 Leagues Under The Sea" first because this book does reference it.
