I am near the middle of WOLP. I know the book was written 5 or 6 years ago, but one of the features of literature is that it brings another time to your present.
I just found out that Captain Nemo, commander of the Nautilus, is wasting away in Caversham Heights, no sequel in sight. How soon he has forgotten! Mr. Verne himself can tell you how the good Captain saved the day in "Mysterious Island"!
make your way to Nextian, where most of the anarchy is contained. These individual book-related threads tend to go fairly quiet after the book has been out for a while.
In reply to your comment, while you are correct, is it possible that the captain Nemo in question has not yet been called back for Mysterious Island - and is he the same Captain Nemo who eventually appeared in "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen"? Perhaps J-Ff can enlighten us?
