Professor Aronnax, his faithful servant, Conseil, and the Canadian harpooner, Ned Land, begin an extremely hazardous voyage to rid the seas of a little-known and terrifying sea monster. However, the "monster" turns out to be a giant submarine, commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo, by whom they are soon held captive. So begins not only one of the great adventure classics by Jules Verne, the 'Father of Science Fiction', but also a truly fantastic voyage from the lost city of Atlantis to the South Pole. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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.
