HASH(0x9b210b94) étoiles sur 5 GT Review 12 novembre 2008
Par Laura D. Sannicolas - Publié sur
Format: Broché
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a very long, drawn-out account of a French professor's adventures under the sea as a 'captive'. At first The Professor is part of the mission hunting the 'large, fluorescent narwhal' that is attacking ships and moves at phenomenal speeds. But after the encounter it he, his assistant, and the harpooner are all thrown overboard. Being at night and the ship's rudder broken they are stranded inthe middle of the ocean...until they find a hard platform to stand on.
The platform turns out to be the top of a giant submarine known as the "Nautilus". The three are taken aboard the Nautilus as captives, but after having gained the captains trust are allowed to live more as crewmen than prisoners. Except for the fact they are not allowed to go upon land and escape the Nautilus they quite enjoy their various ventures all around the oceans of the world...

Note: There is an immature Mormon who is angry over my negative reviews of books written in defense of the Book of Mormon, and that person has been slamming my reviews.

Your "helpful" votes are appreciated. Thanks. In my opinion, you should read long reviews after you read the novel. A very short review can still be a good review if it leads you to a great novel.

As a boy, I watched the Disney movie of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea," and then in college, I picked up this paperback edition with the wonderful cover. From that day I began collecting neat paperback covers.

Everyone knows about Captain Nemo wages war against warships in his submarine. But that aspect of this 19th century novel is of less importance than the magic spun by Jules Verne--a voyage of 20,000 leagues under the sea (not depth! but distance of travel).

Read the book even if you have seen one of the movie versions.

I hope you find my other suggestions for great adventures "helpful."

Read "Cry Wolf" (a 1930s adventure sent in Ethiopia), by Wilbur Smith.
Cry Wolf

Read "Memoirs of an Invisible Man" (there is an explosion at a research facility and a man becomes invisible--highly recommended), by Harry F. Saint.

Memoirs of an Invisible Man

Finally, read "Far Arena" (a Roman gladiator is dug out of the ice in the North Sea, and he is revived!), by Richard Ben Sapir.

The far arena

Par coolhand - Publié sur
Format: Broché
There are three significant translations of this book, and amazon's lacklustre book-sorting system creates nothing but chaos when searching for the correct format / translation of this book. I'm here to help!

note: (find the version you are looking for with the ISBN numbers I've provided at the bottom of this review, you can just copy and paste them into the amazon search field and hit GO).

Here are excerpts from the three most common translations:

Paragraph one, translated by Mercier Lewis -
THE YEAR 1866 WAS signalized by a remarkable incident, a mysterious and inexplicable phenomenon, which doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Not to mention rumors which agitated the maritime population, and excited the public mind, even in the interior of continents, seafaring men were particularly excited. Merchants, common sailors, captains of vessels, skippers, both of Europe and America, naval officers of all countries, and the governments of several states on the two continents, were deeply interested in the matter.

Paragraph one, translated by Walter James Miller and Frederick Paul Walter (1996) -
THE YEAR 1866 was marked by a bizarre development, an unexplained and downright inexplicable phenomenon that surely no one has forgotten. Without getting into those rumors that upset civilians in the seaports and deranged the public mind even far inland, it must be said that professional seamen were especially alarmed. Traders, shipowners, captains of vessels, skippers, and master mariners from Europe and America, naval officers from every country, and at their heels the various national governments on these two continents, were all extremely disturbed by the business.

Paragraph one, translated by William Butcher -
The year 1866 was marked by a strange event, an unexplained and inexplicable occurrence that doubtless no one has yet forgotten. Without mentioning the rumours which agitated the denizens of the ports and whipped up the public's imagination on every continent, seafaring men felt particularly disturbed. The merchants, shipowners, sea-captains, skippers, and master-mariners of Europe and America, the naval officers of every country, and eventually the various nationals governments on both continents--all became extremely worried about this matter.


WHAT a difference! And who to trust?

From wikipedia:
"Many of Mercier's errors were corrected in a from-the-ground-up re-examination of the sources and an entirely new translation by Walter James Miller and Frederick Paul Walter."

So, the modern translation to seek is either the Walter James Miller / Frederick Paul Walter edition, or the William Butcher edition, depending on your preference for the above excerpts.
