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 (2003)

Jules Verne, one of the most influential writers of modern times, was born on February 8, 1828 in Nantes, France. He wrote for the theater and worked briefly as a stockbroker. Verne is considered by many to be the father of science fiction. His most popular novels include Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days. These and others have been made into movies and TV mini-series. Twenty Thousand Leagues is even the basis of a popular ride at the Disney theme parks. In 1892, he was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor in France. He died on March 24, 1905 in Amiens, France.
