The Mysterious Island

After a problem with my library on my Sony 505 I decided to delete what the whole library and start again. About 500 books mostly free classics. The majority were not formatted nicely. I’ve managed to get most of my library back thanks to this great forum, but need The Mysterious Island, by Vern. Can anyone point me in right direction?


Thanks
Kevin

Have you looked in Book Uploads? There's an LRF version contributed by HarryT.

I think my version is nicer than the Feedbooks one, with all due respect to them.

Thanks for the info. I downloaded Harry’s version which has a great front cover.
On another note regarding the book I saw in another of your posts Harry that it was based on Lost. I did a search on Lost and on Wikapedia it did not mention Vern at all. I would love it if he actually did inspire Lost as it’s a great show. Have you any idea if the Wikapedia article is incorrect? If so maybe we could get Vern credited for inspiring the writer?
