The classic Jules Verne science fiction story about the adventures of three men who unwillingly become part of the crew of the Nautilus, the incredibly advanced submarine of Captain Nemo. Unlike the... More > Disney movie, this novel contains much more about the oceans and the life under the surface than it does in giant squid fights (although that is in the book as well). Careful readers will note that the title of this edition reflects the original Verne title using the word "Seas." This refers to the many different seas in which they travel. Though portrayed as a sort of megalomanic, Nemo is actually a tortured man who lost his family and is haunted by their loss. Prof. Aronnax, the key character, both admired and loathes the man for his scientific creations and his cold-hearted attacks on surface ships. This is a fascinating book, and is another example of how far advanced Verne's level of thinking was for his time. Text was taken from an original French edition; illustrations from a later printing.< Less
