Jules Verne’s Mysterious Island was one of my favourite books when I was a child. I was fascinated by the wide knowledge of Cyrus Harding, the engineer who could find a solution through science for pretty much everything. I wanted to be like him. Recently I started reading this book again and again, 25 years later I’m still fascinated by him and I still want to be like Cyrus Harding!
