The greatest underwater adventure ever written. French naturalist Professor Aronnax joins a task force to rid the seas of a monster that is terrorizing shipping lanes. But the Professor’s mission takes an unexpected turn when he falls overboard and is rescued by the ‘monster’ itself—the Nautilus, a man-made submarine built by the mysterious Captain Nemo. At first Aronnax is thrilled to see the unimaginable wonders of the oceans—the reef of coral that formed a cemetery, the floes of the South Pole, the huge oyster and its priceless pearl, the lost land of Atlantis—but soon he realizes that his host’s motives may be more sinister than he had thought. This triumphant work of the imagination shows the limitless possibilities of science and the dark depths of the human mind.
