Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A mission to rid the seas of a monster becomes a nightmare for Professor Arronax, Conseil, and harpooner Ned Land when they become prisoners of the "monster" itself — a spectacular submarine ship commanded by Captain Nemo. But the marvels of their underwater journey soon distract them from their worries — the Professor, at least, wouldn't have missed this voyage for the world!

Synopsis:

A mission to rid the seas of a monstrous creature becomes a nightmare when Professor Aronnax, Conseil, and Ned Land are thrown overboard. The frigate has struck metal. The marine animal which has haunted the water is no beast, but a man-made vessel, and the men become prisoners of captain Nemo.

About the Author

Jules Verne, born at Nantes, France, in 1828, of legal and seafaring stock, was the author of innumerable adventure stories that combined a vivid imagination with a gift for popularizing science. Although he studied law at Paris, he devoted his life entirely to writing. His most popular stories, besides 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870), include: Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863), Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), A Trip to the Moon (1865), Around the World in Eighty Days (1872), and Michael Strogoff (1876). In addition, he was the author of a number of successful plays, as well as a popular history of exploration from Phoenician times to the mid-nineteenth century, The Discovery of the Earth (1878-80). After a long and active career in literature, Jules Verne died at Amiens, France, in 1905.

Robin Waterfield is a graduate of Manchester University and studied Greek philosphy at King's College, Cambridge. He is currently writing a major biography of Kahlil Gibran.

If youve seen the movie pick this up! it brings you much deeper than the film can, and the writing is very contemporary. I have suggested this many of friends and the ones who picked it up agreed that anyone could love this story. Sci fi meets old legends
