Post Verne, Jules: In Search of the Castaways. v2. 17th Feb 2010

"In Search of the Castaways" is one of Verne's lesser-known books, but it's a good read. The basic plot is that a chance discovery of a partially illegible message in a bottle found in a shark's stomach leads to a search for shipwrecked sailors across South America, Australia, and New Zealand (the message specified the latitude, but not the longitude of the shipwreck) with numerous adventures en-route. Basically, it's a travelogue with adventures thrown in.

The characters in this book were very popular, and Verne re-introducted them in "The Mysterious Island", which is itself a sequel to "20,000 Leagues Under the Seas", so ideally this book should be read in between "20,000 Leagues Under the Seas" and "The Mysterious Island".

The PG version of this book was in a horrible state (eg with fragments of page footers remaining in the text) and needed major work to make it readable.

Enjoy!

EDIT: 17 Feb 2010

Major editing work done on the book (although a lot of improvements could still be made). Added a cover image. Uploaded v2.
