About the Author
Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828, in France. Growing up near a river, the constant sight of ships sparked his interest in travel. As a young man, Verne even tried to run away and become a cabin boy. Fortunately, his father caught him, and soon Verne was off to study law in Paris. While there, Verne escaped the boredom of his studies by writing stories. When his father found out about this hobby, he stopped sending money for school. Verne started selling his stories, many of which became popular, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. Before he died in 1905, the author bought a boat and sailed around Europe. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

But the story is a classic, from start to end, and you dont feel that it is over 100 years ago that it was written it still reads well.
The science in the book remains contemporary and either shows how little we have progressed or how advanced Mr Verne and his sources were.
Enjoyable reading for almost any age group.
