In an age that has seen the wildest speculations of science become reality, Jules Verne is regarded as both a technological prophet and one of the most exciting masters of imagination the world has ever known. Of all his novels, none is more compelling and thrilling than 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. This extraordinary voyage into the depths of the unknown aboard the legendary submarine Nautilus—commanded by the brilliant, tragic Captain Nemo—explores both the incredible possibilities of science and the twisted labyrinth of the human mind. The novel stands as science raised to the level of literature and remains a vivid expression of a new era of technological advancement and humanity's place within that world.

  Best Book Ever

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea where a new life begins filled with amazing wonders and creations. You should read this book because it's an exciting science fiction adventure that is so fun that it's hard to put down.

A man receives a letter in the mail asking if he would like to go on the Abraham Lincoln? He accepted the offer. The ship tipped over and sunk to the bottom of the ocean. He and two other friends were the only people on the ship to survive. The found a submarine called the Nautilus and traveled 20,000 leagues under the sea.

My favorite part was when they found the Nautilus. Mr. Aronnax thought the Nautilus was a living creature but it turned out to be a submarine. It was very cool looking.

I loved this book! It's the best book I have ever read. I would recommend anyone over the age of eight years would enjoy reading this book too.
