Can anyone suggest an open source library which can be used in a cross-platform project (targeting Xamarin Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Windows (desktop GTK project)) to read .cbz or .cbr files?

I have found SharpZipLib but not sure whether we can use it in a cross-platform project.

Note: I am trying to read a comic book which is created in cbr or cbz format.

    These file formats are just RAR or ZIP archives, so you are asking the wrong question. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_book_archive There should be plenty of libraries for unpacking RAR/ZIP. – user416 Feb 4 '15 at 8:17

    I remember opening such files in Okular, you could check how they do it. – Nemo Oct 5 '15 at 19:13
  • @Nemo Thank you But i couldn't find any libraries in their site to re use them in an application.I guess they provide only the Reader application. – Thabo Oct 9 '15 at 10:06
