"It is an never ending adventure"
It is in my top 10. I was surprised on how well the story was structured. There is plenty of funny parts and at the same time there is a deep meaning in every single part. It is like a working machine with all parts functioning well and with a special purpose.
Any Jules Verne Book because of its adventure style. Besides the other book that I read about balloons was written by Verne (Travel around the world in 80 days)
Good for kids, plenty of fantasy and at the same time brilliant description of how machines work within the book.
"Another childhood favorite"
This was a childhood favorite of mine. I love the idea, the citizenry of Krakatoa and the original lifestyle they adopted. I was so inspired by the freedom of thought as a child. I recently discovered this book on Audible and had to try the audio version.
I was not disappointed. I love the alphabet families as much as ever and enjoyed rereading a piece of my childhood.
I liked it it was cool and was a good read. I recommend it fully
"My son loved it"
My son loved it and asked, "is there a sequel?" Good kids story and very engaging performance.
