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.
