Treasure Island is an adventure novel by Scottish author Robert Louis Stevenson, narrating a tale of "buccaneers and buried gold". First published as a book on May 23, 1883, it was originally serialized in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881–82 under the title Treasure Island or, the mutiny of the Hispaniola with Stevenson adopting the pseudonym Captain George North. Traditionally considered a coming-of-age story, Treasure Island is an adventure tale known for its atmosphere, characters and action, and also as a wry commentary on the ambiguity of morality — as seen in Long John Silver — unusual for children's literature now and then. It is one of the most frequently dramatized of all novels. The influence of Treasure Island on popular perceptions of pirates is enormous, including treasure maps marked with an "X", schooners, the Black Spot, tropical islands, and one-legged seamen carrying parrots on their shoulders. The Mysterious Island (French: L'Île mystérieuse) is a novel by Jules Verne, published in 1874. The novel is a crossover sequel to Verne's famous Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and In Search of the Castaways, though thematically it is vastly different from those books. An early draft of the novel, initially rejected by Verne's publisher and wholly reconceived before publication, was titled Shipwrecked Family: Marooned With Uncle Robinson, seen as indicating the influence on the novel of Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson." The book tells the adventures of five American prisoners of war on an uncharted island in the South Pacific.

In the Mysterious Island Jules Verne offers to the lovers of the wonderful in literature his most elaborate, attractive, and instructive work. The escape of the voyagers from Richmond in their stolen balloon, and their wreck upon an Island in the Indian Ocean, are incidents in the career of Mr. Verne's heroes which have been made familiar to all readers of magazine literature; but the elaborately ingenious methods by which they wrested from this uninhabited island the means of subsistence, and the appliances through which they effected their deliverance, exhibit a wonderfully accurate knowledge of the capabilities of science. Briefly, the "Mysterious Island" is a new Robinson Crusoe, with all the modern improvements.

ABOUT THE BOOK If you are native to the US, you may not have heard much about Jules Verne’s The Mysterious Island. Perhaps you may have heard of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea or Around the World in 80 Days? No? Not those either? Well you shouldn’t feel too bad. Regardless of the reason for said limited knowledge, it maybe true that if you are not particularly science-fiction inclined nor a fan of substantial 600 pages+ scientific books, it could at least somewhat explain your status on the subject. Even for those who grew up in a French-speaking country (such as myself), Jules Verne, although well-known, was not exactly an author that was widely read in school. Even as a sci-fi fan of tender age, I already knew that Jules Verne was not for those who were ‘playing around’— and I have good reason to believe that I wasn’t the only one feeling that way either. MEET THE AUTHOR A current San Francisco Bay Area resident, Natacha Pavlov has been an avid reader and writer since her early years spent growing up in Brussels, Belgium. She earned her B.A. in Comparative World Literature from San Francisco State University and constantly flirts with the notion of earning her Master’s/PhD someday. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK For his voyage series, Verne had wanted to create a newer, modern version of Robinson Crusoe or deserted island-inspired piece. However, according to www.unmuseum.org, this “major novel had a rough start,” and “his first attempt, Uncle Robinson, was flatly rejected by his publisher Hetzel,” questioning the novel’s lack of science and suggesting a complete start-over. Sure enough, Verne’s second draft proved favorable for publishing. True to the Robinsonade literary style, The Mysterious Island chronicles the adventures of 5 castaways stranded on a deserted island. The castaways basically start off with nothing but soon learn to master their environment, yet eventually notice that mysterious things are happening on the island. The castaways first write it off as “divine guidance,” but as the help given becomes increasingly more scientific in nature, the novel’s adventure starts to take form and the mystery is eventually resolved. By using this dual imagery—mysticism vs. science—Jules Verne could have been highlighting the way both God and science help people in trouble, since he was both a man of faith and a science enthusiast.
