The year is 1866. The maritime world is gripped by fear after reported sightings of a huge and terrible sea monster. Monsieur Aronnax, a distinguished professor of natural history, pronounces the creature to be a giant narwhal and is invited to join an official expedition to track down the beast. But Professor Aronnax is proved wrong. The beast is not of the natural world, but a huge submarine. When he is pulled out of the sea by the enigmatic Captain Nemo and imprisoned on the Nautilus, he experiences first hand the marvels and perils of submarine life. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is plausible, terrifying, utterly gripping, and possibly the first and finest work of science fiction.

Author Bio: Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
