Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Paperback)
Available to ship immediately (not yet in store)
The dark and mysterious depths of the ocean - and all the dangers that immersed within - have fascinated mankind since the beginning of time, and master storyteller Jules Verne captured that sense of wonderment and adventure in his 1870 novel Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Seen through the eyes of marine biologist Pierre Aronnax, readers meet the mysterious and vengeful Captain Nemo, whose monstrous creation the Nautilus plunges the two men along the eponymous 20,000-league journey which ends with tragedy and uncertainty. Twenty-thousand Leagues is among Verne's most popular novels, all of which influenced a burgeoning science fiction genre.
