I probably don't need to tell you much about the plot. Our narrator, Professor Aronnax and his two companions are trapped on board the Nautilus with its mysterious Captain Nemo and his crew. Since they have discovered this unusual and magnificent submarine, they must spend the rest of their lives on it so no one else will find out.
There are many descriptions of the flora and fauna at the bottom of the sea, but most of the story is one adventure after another. Some life threatening, some exceedingly unusual. I felt Aronnax's turmoil as he tried to enjoy all the knowledge and wonder the trip entailed while dealing with his captive state.
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is a comparatively short book for a classic also. I read this using my Serial Reader app, and there were only 47 issues (unlike my previous read, Anna Karenina, which had 159 issues.)
I would recommend Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea to anyone who enjoys a science fiction adventure.
