Présentation de l'éditeur

This classic novel is one that helped define the science fiction genre and inspire generations of writers; one of Jules Verne’s greatest achievements. Several castaways are rescued by Captain Nemo, and his fantastic underwater ship, the Nautilus. While on a thrilling and dangerous quest along the bottom of the ocean, they are forced to fight off sea monsters, mechanical failures and even attempt to escape Nemo himself in the ultimate undersea adventure.

Biographie de l'auteur

Jules Gabriel Verne was born on February 8, 1828 in Nantes, France. As a child, he would watch the many ships on the Loire River, sparking his imagination. He was so fascinated with the idea of having an adventure that he stowed away on a ship bound for the West Indies, but his father was waiting for him at the next port and promptly returned him home. He later went to Paris to study law and began writing the text for operettas and other theater work. When his father discovered he was writing instead of studying law, he pulled his financial support, so he was forced to take a job as a stockbroker. In 1857, Jules was married to Honorine de Viane Morel, a widow with two daughters. In 1861, they had their only child together, a son named Michel. By 1863, his writing was beginning to sell and become profitable, prompting him to write at least two books per year. By 1874, Verne was rich and famous, and purchased a ship to sail around Europe. Shot in the leg by his own mentally ill nephew in 1886, he developed a life-long limp, then became an elected official in 1888. Verne passed away on March 24, 1905, at the age of 77, in Amiens, France, from diabetes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Captian Nemo! 15 septembre 2009
Par Christine Richardson - Publié sur
What an amazing tale. A futuristic submarine, who's captain is an international terrorist bent on destroying all the worlds warships, who has a secret base, and loyal henchmen? And written more than 100 years ago? Powerful, amazing, and a must read by any adventure lover, science fiction reader, or any one looking for a darn good read!

What a strange experience, to read a book written more than 100 years ago, but to find it fresh, alive, and just as powerful and mindbending as it would be when it was first written.

Verne was a genius, and his imagination was powerful, I would recommend this book over and over again! Enjoy!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Come on! If you have not read this - Do it! 27 janvier 2010
Par Marie Martin - Publié sur
Funny thing about great foreign writers, Verne was French, but most of us grew up thinking of him as American, (sadly I admit I did). It's easy to, watching the old movies on TV, or new movies, all in English with US actors. And of course all the wonderful books we grew up with were in English. I hope that is considered a compliment as to his power and success, as he was just as enormously popular in France, and is the founding father of science fiction with perhaps with H.G. Wells. Verne's stories, written for all ages, caught the enterprising spirit of the 19th century and its uncritical fascination about scientific progress and inventions. Perhaps some today are not so uncritical of science, but those who still have adventure in their soul, who long for the stars and the space program, will love all of Verne's works.

One of his most known works, often filmed and enjoyed by millions!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is one of the most fantastic books I have ever read! 6 septembre 2009
Par Nice Person - Publié sur
This is one of the most fantastic books I have ever read! Jules Verne really brings the book to his stories, and this is one that everyone MUST read! Verne will deep into the world of the ocean, and you will be part of adventure of the infamous Captain Nemo himself! Beautiful descriptions, heroic adventure, and intellectual discussions, that is part of the classic story "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". Full of Adventure, vivid descriptions, and is well researched considering how long ago the book was written! Parts of this book even sparked inventions that we use today without thinking. But you need to know: This book is hard to put down. As soon as our main character discovers a submarine that has been sinking war ships you WILL be glued to the pages that lie ahead! I mean think about this, the south pole was not even explored when Verne gave his thrilling account of it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Jim Weiss is the Best Narrator/Storyteller 27 janvier 2011
Par Karen E. Rice - Publié sur
Format:CD|Achat vérifié
We have several of Jim Weiss' recordings. Our entire family enjoys listening to them, especially on long car trips. It's amazing how well my kids listen to these - after being bombarded with fantastic graphics in video games and computer generated special effects in movies, it is refreshing to listen to something so simple, soothing, and interesting all at the same time.

My kids enjoy listening to audio books and narrated stories, and for this I am glad. I plan on picking up more of Jim Weiss' recordings in the future.

If you are looking for something theatrical and over-dramatic, this is NOT it. It is honest, simple, straightforward, and entertaining. Nice way to "detox" from entertainment overload!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A great classic worth reading 14 juin 2014

It was fun to re-read this about 30 years after I first read it.
It is a 'classic' for a reason - it is just plain fun reading!
