Review: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Great Illustrated Classics)

User Review  - Lisa Kizer - Goodreads

Love these classics especially when they are done in an easy to read format. My 6 year old wanted to read the second book to this story and did not like the answer that there was not another. Read full review

Review: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

User Review  - Leanne - Goodreads

A classic in science fiction. I quite enjoy Verne's writing for an easy action packed read. I would have given 3.5 but the classic nature bumped it to 4. This would be a great book for younger readers looking for some PG adventure that can handle a more eloquent English than what we speak now. Read full review

About the author (1981)

Jules Verne (1828-1905) used a combination of scientific facts and his imagination to take readers on extraordinary imaginative journeys to fantastic places. In such books as " Around the World in Eighty Days, From the Earth to the Moon, " and " Journey to the Center of the Earth, " he predicted many technological advances of the twentieth century, including the invention of the automobile, telephone, and nuclear submarines, as well as atomic power and travel to the moon by rocket.
