The Mysterious Island is a story about five Americans who escape from imprisonment by the Confederates by stealing a hot-air balloon. A storm forces the balloon out towards the Pacific Ocean. The balloon bursts and the escapees crash into the ocean. The five friends wash up on the shores of a deserted island, lost and without any food, water, or tools. From the moment the men land they work to live and thrive on the island by using only their own scientific knowledge, willpower, and the abundant resources they find on the island. Soon they’ve established a miniature society thanks to their efforts. However, since they landed there have been strange events which the settlers are unable to explain. As they work to keep the colony maintained they also seek to find the answer to these mysterious events, as well as finding a way to establish contact with their home country of America. There is plenty of description of how the colonists use science to help them prosper on the island, and it’s a very neat concept. There is also humor, action, mystery, and all the usual to keep the reader interested. The whole theme of the novel is very inspiring: that with knowledge, willpower and effort you can accomplish almost anything. Overall, The Mysterious Island is an excellent novel, and the ending is gripping and unexpected. I would highly suggest this to anyone who enjoys science-fiction, books by Jules Verne, classic novels, or just enjoys reading in general.
