20,000 leagues under the sea
This is a review of the novel “ 20,000 leagues under the sea”. The author is Jules Verne. This novel is graphic novel and tells the story about Captain Nemo and his deep
sea expedition. I would highly recommend this book and give the rating a five.
The story is about a french scientist who believes there is a deep sea monster who attacks ships which is called a norwahl to be a whale with a tusk in the middle of his head, kind of like a unicorn.
Here is a basic summary if this story. The french ship is in route of hunting down what they believe is to be a norwahl, but harpoon a submarine instead. this submarine is called the Nautilis. Captain Nemo, the captain of the Nautilis, and his crew go aboard the french ship and capture the whole crew. In the meeting of the two captains they later become commrads and go onto researching the 20,000 leagues under the sea.
This book has adventure, war, and underwater animals. It is very educational and would be liked by people of all ages. The author has taken this maritime fantasy and made it into very enjoyable to read.
