Love this book
This is one of the greatest books I have ever read. Jules Verne's style of story telling was amazing.
This is why Mr. Verne is the "Father of Science-Fiction"
I adored this book. I've recently been interested in classic fiction books and I see why Mr. Verne earned the title "the father of science fiction." You laugh, be mesmerized, and even learn a thing or two from this brilliant man and his pen about the sea and it's creatures. A must read for anyone with admiration for science fiction and a great start. I mean, what better why of igniting a love for science fiction if not from the father that started it all and has inspired hundreds if not thousands to pick up a pen as well! You'll soon see why this book belongs to the ages and so does Mr. Verne.

This was a great book full of adventure! Jules Verne predicted the future technology of submarines very well.

It is a very exciting book, but a little hard to understand. The characters in the book are very well described. My favorite character is Conseil. He is true to Aronnax and his companions.
