Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Extraordinary Voyages, #6)Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for the classic sci-fi seafare adventure that it is, which doesn’t contain romance.

The author Jules Verne, was able to display his great appreciation for marine life and excitement for futuristic foresight quite accurately through his writing, given the time it was written in, having not any inclination of what deep sea exploration truly consisted of. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions of sea life creatures and the suspense that came with the discovery of such unknowns as the characters set out to partake in unknown territories.

The plot and subplots were simple, exciting, and original, though some parts did drag on in over-abundant detail. The book contained illustrations which I also very much appreciated. They added depth to my imagination of the setting and characters as well as to the perception of discoverable laws and behaviors of physics, marine life, and humanity at the time the book was written.

MY FAVORITE LINES:

“And to the question asked by Ecclesiastes six thousand years ago, “That which is far off and exceeding deep, who can find it out?…”
