Well, actually I can, come to think of it. It's this terrible "first past the post" system we have here. The opposition to "The Mysterious Island" is split amongst all the 'minor' books. If we had an Alternative Vote, Single Transferrable Vote, or even a run-off between first and second, I'm sure "Kim" would win!
