20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Bantam Classics)by Jules Verne
Science, vengeance, high adventure, submarines, lost cities, battles with giant squid, and one of the most compelling and tragic characters in all of literature: the fascinating Captain Nemo. It seems that Jules Verne wrote the ultimate steam-punk novel in 1869. Sure, you'll hear plenty of buzz about stuff written to capture the excitement of the steam-punk aesthetic, and some of it's even pretty good, but this classic novel deserves your full attention as well.
Synopses & Reviews
An American frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention — a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Suddenly a devastating explosion leaves just three survivors, who find themselves prisoners inside Nemo's death ship on an underwater odyssey around the world from the pearl-laden waters of Ceylon to the icy dangers of the South Pole . . .as Captain Nemo, one of the greatest villians ever created, takes his revenge on all society.
More than a marvelously thrilling drama, this classic novel, written in 1870, foretells with uncanny accuracy the inventions and advanced technology of the twentieth century and has become a literary stepping-stone for generations of science fiction writers.
Three survivors of a shipwreck live to see the incredible submarine of Captain Nemo take revenge on all society.
