    I love me some Jules Verne, but not this one. Verne tells some very tall tales, but usually they achieve a beautiful balance of unbelievable without being ridiculous. This one fell into the ridiculous almost immediately. 4 men and a dog escape a Civil War battle in a hot air balloon, are then carried some 5000 miles into the great emptiness of the Southern Pacific Ocean to land on a rocky island that supports massive amounts of large animals. Within the 3 years of the novel they; build shelter, grow crops, tame livestock, build two ocean vessels, rescue a stranded sailor from another island, smelt iron, blow glass, and build a telegraph line. Oh and of course capture an orangutan and train it to be their 'man-servant'. All while fighting off pirates, jaguars, disease, and boredom. Saved from all calamity by a mysterious force. Skip this one and choose any other Verne book.

    Still my favorite of all that Jules Verne wrote. The audio book version (free from Librivox.org) was excellent. Sure... the dialog was implausible, the resolution even more so, but it was still as satisfying as the first time I read it 40 years ago. It wraps up multiple loose ends as a single, fitting sequel to both 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Among the Cannibals (aka In Search of the Castaways).
