Flawless book 2017-03-06

This is an amazing book which has also given me motivation to learn swimming. The story is really convincing to me as I can relate very well to it. The idea of finding a submarine under the sea was a turning point in the book for me. I am very much interested in adventure and this book was a perfect treat for me. This book had created a lot of curiousness in me and I would love to read it more times

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea 2016-10-26

This story is about the adventures of Captain Nemo and his crew aboard the submarine, Nautilus. One day ships start sinking, particularly ones dealing with war. Survivors think it is a big whale. A harpoon ship goes out to kill it, but finds out that the whale is actually the Nautilus. The most interesting part of this book was probably the Nautilus itself. It is shaped to look like a fish, with a large metal fin on top used to ram and sink the ships. The camouflage of the boat being shaped like a whale works, up until the part where the Nautilus takes on a few passengers from one of the sinking ships. Another intriguing part of this book was Captain Nemo. He is the kind of character that you neither like nor dislike. I say this, because of some of Nemo’s actions. Captain Nemo hates war, and throughout the book, he uses his submarine to destroy all kinds of war related ships. You would like him for trying to put an end to war, but dislike his method (destroying ships and killing innocent lives).

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea 2016-02-23

This sci-fi by the father of science fiction- JULES VERNE is a bested classic and draws the reader to the mysteries that lie below the sea. It is quite related with the journey to the center of the earth, but is in every way adventurous. The Captain Nemo and his Nautilus are fascinating enough to draw readers to it. It is a wonderful book.

Resigned to their fate, they begin a miraculous journey on the submarine ship which can travel through waters never before explored. For the Professor, at least, this voyage is one he would not have missed for the world. An American frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention -- a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Suddenly a devastating explosion leaves just three survivors, who find themselves prisoners inside Nemo's death ship on an underwater odyssey around the world from the pearl-laden waters of Ceylon to the icy dangers of the South Pole . . .as Captain Nemo, one of the greatest villians ever created, takes his revenge on all society.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea 2015-06-21

Jules Verne is a great sci- fi writer and science loving readers will enjoy his books thoroughly. I loved this book a lot. This is a really, really nice book but its story is a little bit complicated so I won't be able to summarize this book's story. But, this book is certainly worth a read.

20 thousand leagues under the sea 2015-06-20

Parents need to know that next to Agatha Christie, Jules Verne is the most translated author of all time, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870) is probably his most popular work -- which means you have versions galore to choose from, depending on your kid's age, interest level, and sensitivities, from full-length annotated versions to entry-level books that focus on the basic story. This unabridged version, translated from the French by Anthony Bonner, preserves Verne's 19th-century tendency to show off his knowledge on all subjects, so expect every plot development to be cause for a lecture on history or science. It also includes some violent scenes, especially of shipwrecks and their drowned victims, as well as a dramatic attack against a ship and its crew by a group of giant squid, which costs a crew member his life; another dies after an incident that isn't described. There's a good deal of violence against animals and butchery of sea creatures, as well. Mysterious Captain Nemo is driven by the need for revenge, but his motives are never fully explained.
