The year is 1866. The maritime world is gripped by fear after reported sightings of a huge and terrible sea monster. Monsieur Aronnax, a distinguished professor of natural history, pronounces the creature to be a giant narwhal and is invited to join an official expedition to track down the beast. But Professor Aronnax is proved wrong; the beast is not of the natural world, but is a huge submarine. When he is pulled out of the sea by the enigmatic Captain Nemo, and imprisoned on the Nautilus, he experiences at first hand the marvels and perils of submarine life. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is possibly the first and finest work of science fiction; plausible, terrifying and utterly gripping. Download and start listening now!

    " Like many classics...a little drawn out. I can appreciate the attention to detail and scientific knowledge demonstrated though. "

    " A good start but then it lagged... had many dull moments. It is great science fiction for its time period but all the expectations fell short. "

    " By "under" I'd always assumed it meant "straight down" and silently cursed it because I knew the oceans weren't that deep. Glad to have finally read it. "

    " read for my theater group when we were creating a play....safe to say i quit the theater group afterwards...
    Jules Verne while a great author not my favorite at any means...This bookd gave me nausea with his descriptions of underwater life and other stuff...
    Read the Spanish versioN! "

    " An interesting adventure.Great imaginary scenery and a good story. At some points its redundant and if you are not interested in sea adventures it could be a little bit over the top. Its decent but not a must read or a page turner.
    "Around the world in 80 days" is ten times better. "

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.
