Twenty thousand leagues
This is one the most revolutionary books I have read in my life, it might be old like "Journey to the center of the Earth " (by Jules vernes) or "The last of the Mohicans
" (by James Cooper) but it is amazing and very emotional at the end when the Captain Nemo dies and he has to blow up all his inventions. One thing that really strikes me is the reason for which Nemo has chosen to live in the ocean,if you would have asked why they liked to live in the ocean to people now a days they would probably say that they like to discover lots of species of fishes or that its a really beautiful. On the other hand if you ask Captain Nemo he would (did) say it's the only area where there is peace ultimae silnece, no War, no Corruption, no pressure. I mean who has time for work everyday, a fight with your boss, or the responsibility for your children, life's too short. Nemo is also trying to say that humans out there in the outside world have become so violent over sensitive and uncontrolable and we cannot trust them, we'd rather trust wildlife animals who act more civilised than humans. This one of the reasons why he goes around destroying the ships that transport cargo because there is this island where slavery is still going on when it's actually illegal.

About the author (2006)

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.
