Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
This classic science fiction novel tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus and its various adventures as seen and recorded by Professor Pierre Aronnax. The magnificent scale of the Nautilus, Jules Verne’s attention to mechanical details and his ability to make the most fantastic ideas believable, makes this a tale of dazzling ingenuity. The unknown creatures of the undersea world and the threats and surprises that they hold, makes this a book that appeals to the explorer in each one of us. It’s continuing charm lies in the curious mix of logic, fact and outright fiction.
