Which are some popular islands in fiction?

There are many fictional islands that have caught the imagination of the world. H.G. Wells wrote about the Island of Dr. Moreau. This is the story of a shipwrecked man rescued by a passing boat, who is left on the island home of a mad scientist called Doctor Moreau. Treasure Island is an adventure story by Robert Louis Stevenson about hidden gold and pirates. Then there is Robinson Crusoe, a classic adventure story about a traveller who is shipwrecked on a desert island.


Edgar Allen Poe, Jules Verne, and Mark Twain are some other authors who have all created islands out of their imagination. Some of these islands are depicted as tropical paradises, others as bleak inhospitable places, and still others, as the home of unusual people. All of them are as real to the reader as a real island!
