· I read the fictional novel 20,000 Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne.

This book is by far one of my favorites, and I definitely want to read another in the Extraordinary Voyages series. This book made me question the existence of humanity and that under the ocean. The main characters are Captain Nemo, Professor Arronax, Ned Land, and Conseil. (view spoiler) ...more

Sorry to admit it, but I had to abandon this before the end. I think this is the sort of read that was much more captivating when it was written (before film). Still a decent way to pass the time while on a plane or train, but I could only take so much species classification.

I am fascinated by reading books like this. A book about a submarine before submarines existed. Like science fiction or steampunk I guess, which I also like, but this is different. It was like taking a course on ocean life and mechanical engineering woven into a storyline.

I could also see how someone reading now could find the lengthy classification of ...more

This book is by far one of my favorites, and I definitely want to read another in the Extraordinary Voyages series. This book made me question the existence of humanity and that under the ocean. The main characters are Captain Nemo, Professor Arronax, Ned Land, and Conseil.( Ned, Arronax, & Conseil set out along with the crew of the Abraham to capture a sea monster. Not long after, they find that it has metal skin, and declare it to be a submarine. They find that inside of it, there are more ...more

This was a pretty interesting book, you have to give it a while to get started, but it's a really long book, so it's worth it in the end. There are some parts of the book that are very slow such as when the crew of the ship are wandering around for days, but eventually they find the monster they are looking for and then it's very interesting. I read this book on the side before going to bed and at the same time as reading other books because it's not the kind of book that you can read all the ...more

Definitely not my favorite, but I made it through. I won't be searching for any other Jules Vernon books.

This book has aged very well. For a book which is almost 150 years old it is very interesting.
Additionally a lot of problems presented in this book are also relevant in today's times.
