    One thought on “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Great Illustrated Classics)”

    1. আমার পড়া সবচেয়ে প্রিয় ভার্নের বই। <3এই বই পড়ে জীবনে যে কত্ত এডভেঞ্চারের স্বপ্ন দেখেছি। নোটিলাস কে ভালবেসে ফেলেছিলাম। যদিও প্রথমদিকে জাহাজ ধ্বংস করা জিনিসটা ভাল লাগে নি। ক্যাপ্টেন নিমো তার [...]

    2. A decent read.Starts out as a sort of mystery story, but evolves into more character-centric story.The downsides:- The incessant scientific descriptions of the fauna. I mean seriously, telling me a fish's full scientific classification doesn't really do anything for me. - Pacing is a bit weird. - Ending felt abrupt and didn't really add to the story. It felt like Verne just got tired of writing and quickly thew together a "conclusion". - The book's protagonist is easily the second most boring ch [...]

    3. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, is a great book with Juicy Details. I love how the seamen journey for the majestic Narwhale. The adventure they take is a thrill for me. The description of how this Narwhale looks like was vivid! As they found more places like the Lost City of Atlantis it made me excited what was next.I recommend this to Adventure Readers.

    4. The book is about sorta about pirates and the first submarine. I liked the book because I like the classics. I would recommend this book to Edgar and Seth because they like reading books.

    5. What is there not to say about a Jules Verne book? The guy has a wonderful imagination and yet he does a great job in balancing out his stories so it doesn't lean too much into disbelief that the reader is just lost in the sci-fi aspect of it. In this particular case the ballast on this particular book are the "marine" facts that are provided by the protagonist. Like most of the older books that are considered there isn't much build-up of the characters, especially when it comes to the secondary [...]

    6. The hallmark of a classic story is to be able to enchant readers across generations. Verne has certainly achieved this with 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. I never read this book as a child (or even saw any of the movies). I suspect I would have found the vocabulary too difficult, especially the names of all the marine life. The characters are all so very interesting. I particularly am inspired by Conseil, the role he plays as Aronnax's sidekickspectful, helpful, but a lot too him beyond that of A [...]

    7. This book is about three men that get captured by captain Nemo, they did most things in the sea but the men were planning to escape sooner than later. This book was amazing because of the part where they were inside Captian Nemo's submarine. I would recommend this book to someone who is interested in captain Nemo

    8. This book is about these three man that are on a mission to kill this unknown creature. Then a incident that the men go over bored. They get saved by a mysterious person. Now the three men decides to stay with him and now they go on the best adventure of their life.

    9. I like the book 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, because the missions were weird. It's about a professor on a boat who was taken captive by a machine that looked just like an animal and the crew.Then the captain of the ship named captain Nemo let them help with his missions.One mission was when they went though a tunnel under Mexico. Another mission was to break the ice barrier. Another mission was to run away from the ship.

    10. Not much fun to read. Interesting in places, but lots of technical mumbo-jumbo that I found to be very boring.

    11. World renowned oceanographer, Pierre Aronnax, is brought aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln to help track down a colossal sea monster attacking ships around the world. After months of not even one sighting, the monster is spotted. Harpooner Ned Land attempts to harpoon the creature, believed to be a giant narwhal. The gigantic monster attacks the boat knocking off Aronnax, his servant Conseil, and Ned Land. The men are on top of a metal “island” (the “sea monster”), when a hatch opens; they [...]

    12. This is the story of Professor Aronnax and two companions who, in search of a giant ship-wrecking narwhal, find instead the Nautilus, a futuristic submarine. Its strange captain, last name Nemo, takes them on board and holds them prisoner. For the rest of the novel, the main characters witness the beauty and danger of the undersea world. It’s easy for a twenty-first century reader to make fun of this 19th century wonder-story. First, the characterization is paper thin. Professor Aronnax, the p [...]

    13. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Book Review 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is an incredible and classic novel about the adventure 3 people embark on. When they are cast into the sea, they are rescued by the Nautilus, a submarine mistaken for a horrific monster. Aboard this beautiful machine, they come to find out they will not be allowed to leave, for fear they will tell the outside world of the submarines existence. They partake in the adventure of a lifetime with the Nautilus' crew, alongside its c [...]

    14. Good Read, But Sometimes Dry: I thought that the book had one of the best plot lines I've ever seen, reguardless of the fact that there is only slight building up to the climax. The only thing that I didn't think was that good about the book was that about every other page, Jules Verne would go into a paragraph description of the animals. For example, he would say something like: I just saw a tuna. But not the normal tuna, it was yellow-bellied, had dorsal fins that went at a downward angle, etc [...]

    15. I thought 20,000 leagues under the sea was a great book. It had adventure, and action. This book is good for any ages and is great if you love the sea. This isn't only a great book, its got good facts about the ocean and places around the world.20,000 leagues under the sea is about these three men that are on a sea voyage to find a sea monster that everyone is talking about. One day in a terrible storm they find it and shoot cannons at it. Suprisingly The cannons bounce off it then the monster f [...]

    16. "Is it monkeys?" cried Ned Land."Almost," replied Conseil; "it's savages."-- page 168"Within the phylum of zoophytes and the class of Alcyonaria, there is the order of Gorgonaria which contains the three divisions of Gorgoniae, Isidae and Coralliae."-- page 193Part textbook, part 19th century imperialistic propaganda. But a really good adventure story. This book could not be written today. But it is still a great read and gives the reader an interesting historical perspective on the attitudes to [...]

    17. The beginning of the story seemed to be like the plot of a fantasy story, the magician (the scientist, Monsieur Arronax), and his student (Conseil) set out on a voyage to defeat a fearsome monster, together with the was the great warrior(the hapooner, Ned Land), the general, and his crew. During their battle eith the monster, the magician, his student and the warrior were separated form the crew, and this is the point where the story became unique. The monster was actually a submarine built by a [...]

    18. Somewhere in the back of my mind was this idea I didn't like Jules Vernebut this is only the second book I've read, and a few chapters in, I was loving it. He writes so real. I loved the bit at the beginning about atmospheric pressure per square inch of the body, how the relationship is exponential, how and why you're not aware of it, and how the compounding of it beneath the pressure of the water. Science is intoxicating when I know I won't be tested on it or need to prove application! It did g [...]

    19. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne20,000 Leagues under the sea is a great adventure novel. This book written by Jules Verne was a fascinating way to learn about the under water submarines. this story was a great one filled with energy adventure and even a little bit of mystery. This book takes you through the depths of the ocean like no other book has ever done. This book is a great classic read. The characters in this novel are amazingly put together and are all so different. The plot [...]

    20. Jules Verne knows how to weave a tale. This story is about a mysterious vessel terrorizing the seas in the 1800's. The story covers issues such as war, wealth, power, grief, class status. The latter two I was not expecting in the book. If you choose to read this, please note that the author uses non PC terminology regarding those who are not white males. It is something that appears in some variation of his writing (this is the second Verne book I have read). If you can do that, you will enjoy t [...]

    21. I thought this was a really good book. It was about a French Scientist named Professor Aronnax and his two friends, Ned and Conseil. They saw a weird looking submarine, then it attacked their boat. They were captured by Captain Nemo, and put into his submarine. Captain Nemo explained that they could never escape, because they've seen too much. The 3 friends decided to come along with Captain Nemo, which is all they could really do, and go on a 20,000 league journey. They go oyster diving, they f [...]

    22. This book is split into two parts. The first is extremely detailed in explanation of classes of species and description of the Nautilus and how it works. I often found myself bored and disinterested. The facinating part of it though is that considering when it was written and the fact that submarines were not really used the detail is amazing.The second part is descriptive but adventurous as well. The details and emotions of different scenes and situations they are in really pull you in.

    23. In 5th grade, I remember becoming a huge fan of the Great Illustrated Classic books. The first one I read was 2,000 Leagues Under the Sea and after that I was hooked. What I liked about this book was the topic. The extreme conditions and creatures they face. The reason why I liked that so much was because it seemed to scary and unbelievable which made me keep on reading. The ocean has always sparked to my interest which is why I enjoyed this book so much.

    24. This book is awesome. I like it because the world is worried about a ship called the Nautilus whichpeople around the world think that the Nautilus is a giant sea animal because it looks like a narwhal.This ship goes through the Torres Strait which is dangerous, the Suez Canal, the Great Ice Barrier, and they get caught in a whirlpool! What a book this is!

    25. For some reason I thought this book was like Moby Dick - except the battle between man and squid. WRONG! I guess I thought that because one of the covers has a giant squid on it. Anyway, a great story of three people who find themselves accidentally on the submarine Nautilus with Captain Nemo - the man who has turned his back on society to live underwater. But who is he, why has he done this, and what is he after?
