    " It's a great book but there is so much detail. I often skip 1/2 -1 page of the descriptions and classifications of the sea creatures they encounter during their ocean exploration. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jelost | 7/13/2011

    " I admit that by 3/4 of the way through, I started skipping the descriptions of every type of fish, eel, octopus, and microscopic organism that happened to float by. The steampunk elements amused me, and I got a kick out of Ned Land as a character. "

    " This book is completely amazing. It remained my favorite book I'd ever read for some time. Captain Nemo is almost without equal. He is one of the greats in literature. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Manda | 7/12/2011

    " This book, along with Pride and Prejudice, first turned me on to classic literature when I was a tiny fifth-grader. One of my top favorite books for a long time. "

    " I know its a classic novel but for god's sake I've never been more exposed to Latin Classification of taxonomy than I ever care to be. I think it gets in the way of the flow of the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esther | 7/7/2011

    " It's a great adventure story. Perfect for a rainy day or a vacation - esp. at sea! "

    " Another 3-D cover edition that I wasted $$$ on...Why is this a classic? There is no plot. And it just ENDS. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Magila | 7/4/2011

    " a classic that is as enjoyable as it is classic. "

    " read on the Classics app on my phone "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vali | 6/25/2011

    " Entertaining, old-fashioned, mysterious.
    I really enjoyed reading the first part about how the protagonist discovered the Nautilus.
    Can't say I was as entertained of the life on board and the non-stop description and names of fishes. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
