My son and I are reading this book together. My son has said that the writing is so vivid that he feels like he is in the Nautilus with the crew. We love it!

Praise
"Jules Verne opened me up to fantasy. I loved 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Captain Nemo is who I always wanted to be. Here was a person who built his own submarine, using advanced technology, nuclear energy, before anyone even knew that it existed. So he was a technologist, but he was an adventurer. He explored beneath the sea. I always had the picture of being inside Captain Nemo's Nautilus."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Trapped aboard a fantastic submarine with a mad sea captain, a French professor and his companions come face to face with exotic ocean creatures and strange, forbidden sights hidden from the world above. This is the classic deep sea adventure from the world's first and best science-fiction author.
First Line "The year 1866 was marked by a strange event, an unexplainable occurrence which is undoubtedly still fresh in everyone's memory."
Annotation A ship-sinking monster confounds American boats until they discover that the creature is actually a submarine powered by the nefarious Captain Nemo (Nemo is Latin for nobody), a swashbuckling villain with grandiose ideas and deadly intentions. Probably the most famous of the novels in Verne's Voyages Extrordinaires series.
