It is kind of boring if you don't like science. It's not called SCINCE fiction for nothing!

This book is done in the style of a graphic novel or comic book with color illustrations and "panels". A perfect choice for a teen or pre-teen that would enjoy the wonderful story but that might not enjoy reading only pages of black and white text. It brings the story more alive and helps a younger person envision the settings of that time period that they otherwise aren't familiar with.

Classic of science-based fiction adventure. It was one of the first I read as a young child and I still admire Jules Verne storytelling.

One of the best novels from one of the best science fiction writers of all time. Literary and thrilling, even 120 years later. The original translator did such a poor job that this book never got the respect in the US that it did in France. Newly retranslated and annotated, the US reader can now get the full effect of this wonderful tale.

This is an all time classic tale, it is the one for which Jules Verne is perhaps most famous.
Captain Nemo is a complex character that is both lovable and frightening. One is never sure if he is insane or passionate. The story explores not only the ocean, but the depths of one's self.

Advice for any reader is: feel free to skip some paragraphs. To make the story seem more real, Jules Verne added a TON of scientific details. He literally lists ALL the fish he saw. Unless you are a Marine Biologist, you will find these paragraphs totally pointless.
Other than that, don't skip anything because the story is full of detail that really makes you think! A definite MUST READ.

The story is told by Professor Aronnax, who agrees to investigate a series of attacks by a mysterious sea monster. He joins the crew of the ship Abraham Lincoln. The men encounter what they believe is the monster, but turns out to be a large, state-of-the-art submarine, the Nautilus. Aronnax and a hot tempered harpoonist, Ned Land, are imprisoned on this vessel, captained by the misanthropic recluse, Nemo. Nemo takes them around the world. Verne's descriptions of the underwater world, with its exotic creatures and sunken ships, shine.
