Meet the Author

Jules Gabriel Verne (1828-1905) was a French author who, along with British writer H. G. Wells, is considered to be one of the founders of the science fiction genre. Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. He is the second most translated author of all time, only behind Agatha Christie. A number of his books have been made in films several times.

Jules Verne does it again with The Mysterious Island Trilogy. The characters are put in very difficult situations and Verne has them succeed with the help of their engineer Cyrus Harding. The 5 colonists on Lincoln Island have to overcome and blast through many obstacles that bar their way to a comfortable life and going back home to the United States
