From the Publisher". . .The many good things contained in this book begin and rely on translator Sydney Kravitz's wonderful rendering of Verne's original words. There is nothing fusty or dull about this tale, as filtered through Kravitz's talents. The dialogue sounds like actual people might speak it, and hardly any archaic constructions obtrude. Reading this prose is pure pleasure; it allows the story itself to leap free."--SciFi.com
"With the publication of The Kip Brothers and The Mysterious Island, it is no longer possible to dismiss Verne as a 'children's author'.... Revealing the sociological, scientific, historical, and geographic breadth of his vision, these titles provide room for critical speculation for years to come."
--Janice M. Bogstad, Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
