20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

By Oliver Heard - April 21, 2013

Have you ever wished to go into the depths of the ocean, walk, and travel through the many different seas? Well, if so, this is the book for you. "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne is a science fiction novel that takes place in the 1800s in which there have been sightings of a large creature traveling at extremely high speeds between the seas. A team of men - including Professor M. Arronax, his servant Conseil, and a Canadian harpooner Ned Land - take off in the Abraham Lincoln to find and kill this strange creature. When confronting this creature they are attacked and Professor Arronax, Conseil, and Ned Land are thrown from the ship and into the cold water. They climb onto the creature which is actually a vessel made of iron. They are taken into said vessel and introduced to the Captain Nemo who runs the ship. They are told they are to accompany him on his trip and never to be released so that his existence is not to be revealed to the world.

Imagine brightly-coloured fish and giant whales swimming right past your face. If you like the
ocean and its mysteries, you will probably like 20,000 Leagues under the Sea. It is a science fiction book

Loved it!

By Sweet Kawaii - August 13, 2012

I want to read it again! This is a awesome book. I like this better than Journey to the Center of the Earth. It's a little long but its worth the time it takes to read it. An exciting journey is waiting for you with in the pages of the wonderful classic book. My fave parts are when they; visit Atlantis, go hunting underwater, and go pearl diving. However, I still want to know more about Captain Nemo. The book didn't answer all my questions about him. God bless ya.
