At fist, my sister told me to read this book as part a my Literature classes. I wasn't that excited, but as I got deeper into the book, I saw that 20,000 Leagues under The Sea is totally awesome and I couldn't put it down! My only critique is: okay, everyone knows that one of the details that makes this book so great is the squid fight, right? Well, the fight only lasted 1 and 1/5 page in the book! It was so short!

But overall, I thought that the book was great and EVERYONE should read it.
An illustrated children's version of Verne's classic - this is a harshly cut-up and rehashed version of the original. Granted it was created for children, they could have at least followed the timeline of Disney's classic recreation as opposed to whatever tangent Grund brought this book on.
I suppose I could say that I probably liked this as a kid, but having already been exposed to Disney's wonderful adaptation, it just felt like I was being cheated.
