I read this book when I was 12 or 13 and fell in love with it. Jules Verne's works introduced me to the idea of science fiction, and I've never regretted it once. This is more of an adventure novel by today's standards, and some people would probably think the writing style is hard to read, but I enjoy books written in the 1800s on a regular basis and rather like it, myself.
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a wonderfully atmospheric story. You really feel like you're there with the Professor, Ned Land, and Conseil. If Captain Nemo doesn't capture your imagination, nobody will.
This a terrific book, really well written and thrilling. I was totally amazed to find it online. When will there be a new one?
This book takes knowledge and understanding to get and all of you that thinks it's boring just don't get it and I'm sorry but this is a classic book that will be revered for centuries.
