A really fascinating tale by Verne. Even though it's not strictly science fiction, it is still well-worth reading, and really held my attention. Verne is a great writer.

This is not your typical Jules Verne. There is no science fiction or fantasy involved. One of the best adventure stories I've read and definitely the best of Verne. Doesn't have Verne's mixing up dates, distances, and numbers that frequently occur in his other books. This has it all-good plot, good character development, adventure, suspense, and surprisingly for Verne, romance. Beats everything else he's done. As exciting as Treasure Island.
