    Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, The Mysterious Island is considered by many to be Jules Verne’s masterpiece. “Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump” (Kirkus Reviews), here is the enthralling tale of five men and a dog who land in a balloon on a faraway, fantastic island of bewildering goings-on and their struggle to survive....

    Tad Davis says: "Wonderful novel, mediocre translation"
    "Imagination excellency from the master Verne"

    Where does The Mysterious Island rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is the second best audiobook I've listened to.


    What other book might you compare The Mysterious Island to and why?

    Comparing it to Ender's Game, this book also makes the mind imagine ramifications of the story as it conserves a real athmosphere. The carachters are really great, they are full of carachteristics, they are smart, innocent and inventive.


    Any additional comments?

    With Verne you cannot go wrong.

    Millennium publisher Mikael Blomkvist has launched an explosive investigation into the sex-trafficking industry in Sweden and its international links. When two journalists are found dead in a Stockholm apartment, police are baffled by what appears to be a professional killing. Ex-security analyst and former child delinquent Lisbeth Salander is wanted for murder, but the trail has gone cold.

    M. Solis says: "Excellent!"
    "Not clever, I struggle to keep interested..."

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I am half way and not so eager to finish... its just rather boring and full of unnecessary mundane things with a bit of interesting sides of the characters.


    Would you recommend The Girl Who Played With Fire to your friends? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't really recommend this novel, the performance is dull and the voice is a weird interpretation. Also the performer for some reason reads as if it was set in England and that Lisbeth was from a ghetto. The author is just desperately trying to fill my mind with nonsense and the story (which is rather simple so far) is taken too long to unfold.


    Was The Girl Who Played With Fire worth the listening time?

    Not really.
