A large, deadly sea monster is running loose and has already destroyed over 200 ships. The acclaimed French scientist Dr. Aronnax decides to hunt down the legendary monster, but he and his companions are thrown overboard and rescued by Captain Nemo during a heated battle. They then embark on a riveting adventure aboard Captain Nemo’s extraordinary submarine, the Nautilus. Jules Verne’s exhilarating classic is a splendid combination of thrilling suspense and adventure. Verne’s haunting characterization of Captain Nemo, who remains one of the most perplexing characters in literary history, is particularly memorable.
