This is one of the books I have most enjoyed in my life, a continual source of a great read, and with such insight into a technology 100 years ahead of the authors time... Such detail is described, and wonders are explored in great depth. Backed up with such interesting and contrasting characters as Captain Nemo, Conseil, Ned Land, and the Professor himself. The punch this book packs is lessened somewhat by the Disney film of it, which is targeted at a somewhat... Immature audience as opposed to the book, which is clearly for a more adult age group to enjoy. A classic in the true sense.
