One of the brightest novels by Jules Verne is an adventure-sci-fi genre. The famous author has put everything together: a swirling plot against the background of an outlandish underwater landscape, dangerous situations and a mysterious figure of the legendary Captain Nemo on board no less than the legendary "Nautilus".
One of the most outstanding novels of the French sci-fi writer Jules Verne, in which the author continues the story of Captain Nemo. "Mysterious Island" takes the reader during the American Civil War, when several northerners were captured in a foreign camp. They decide to escape, flying to neutral territory in a hot air balloon, but get into a hurricane and find themselves on a remote uninhabited island. Here brave wanderers will spend four years, and only talents, skills, bravery, ingenuity and mutual help will help the heroes of the book to survive on the island. Alas, the peaceful presence of "robinsons" on the island interrupts the attack of pirates. The very life of the heroes is under threat, but to protect the colonists is taken by a mysterious invisible friend.
To appreciate this book, we must forget how many times it has been called "the greatest American novel" and "masterpiece of world literature." Yes, the reader will not be deterred by the labels hung for more than a hundred years. And great luck, of course, that "Moby Dick" is not included in the school curriculum.
