Although not written by Jules Verne, this screen version of Ian Cameron's story is filmed and acted very much in the same film style as many of the Frenchman's big screen adaptations in the latter half of the 20th century. Despite Donald Sinden's characterful and slightly obnoxious Englishman with conviction, the story lacks some clout, although the 'adventure' were subjected to almost makes up for this.

I read this book when I was about 9 years old and it has stayed in my mind ever since. It was the first book I read from beginning to end. It definitely left a lasting impression on me.

Book was very very tanned. Worst of all was the big sticker on the cover!

Just finished my third read-through over the years of this minor adventure classic. The plot is first-rate with a Raiders of the Lost Ark touch of mystery and was the source of an colorful, underrated Disney movie. Explorers head for a remote Canadian island, defying local taboos, in an effort to find the son of one of the trio as well as the fabled graveyard of whales and the treasure to be found there in the form of ambergris. Set in 1960, the story takes their expedition across the ice and pits them against blonde-haired Eskimos who lethally guard their island. An excellent story and the images suggest how this inspired Disney to create their script, substituting airship for dogsleds.

Island at the Top of the World was one of the first books I read as a kid, and it really captured my imagination. A great adventure story with an airship that goes to the Arctic in search of ambergris, the stuff in sperm whales they use in perfume. The subplot has a guy searching for his long lost brother if I recall right. Anyway it's great for kids and someday I hope to see the Disney film.

Like the other reviewers, I first read this book when I was a child, and it certainly is appropriate for kids ten and older. It should not, however be read only by children. It is one of the best adventure novels ever written. It compares favorably with King Solomon's Mines, She, and other great adventure novels. Although a movie version of this book was made by Disney, readers should be aware, the movie and the book do not closely resemble one another. To my mind, having seen both, the book is much superior.

If you like Jules Verne, Ian Fleming, or even Clive Cussler, you should like this novel. It made for fast reading in an adventurous way.

Although I have not seen the movie, the novel was descriptive enough that I feel I almost did.

Light hearted pre-techno-thriller reading.

I first read this book in 7th grade, 30 years ago. I have read it at least 10 more times since. A mystery/adventure tale set in the Canadian arctic. Plenty of action and suspense. I highly recommend it for the teenage boy who does not like to read. You just might make a reader of him. It worked for me.
even though the writing was outdated and the print was really small (how did I read this when I was younger??) I really enjoyed the story especially for the survival tips
