We're reading another simplified copy of this book (our 4th different edition). Each version includes some things the others didn't, so it's perfect for Joshua and he's mesmerized by it all and tries to draw how he thinks the Nautilus really looks. He wants me to read him the unabridged next, but I think I've had enough and will leave that for HIM to read someday. This book makes me want to read Moby Dick; we keep debating who's worse: Captain Nemo or Captain Ahab.
Another remnant of the children's abridged novel series I had as a kid. And another topic I was totally fascinated with, what the heck was going on in all that big, blue sea. I can't lie, I spent years hoping that someday I'd do something like this. Obviously, every 12 year old girl who sees a dolphin in person decides immediately to be a marine biologist, but I mostly wanted to beat the crap out of a squid. With an axe.
Jules Verne's great work of science fiction prescience, in which he imagines the submarine a century before its invention. It's also a great tale.

Jules Verne is a master at details! You could swear that he worked his whole life on the ocean. Captain Nemo is a very layerd character.

I love the movie! The book is just like watching the movie but only you fill like your there!
