Publisher's Summary

In 1866, sightings of a legendary sea monster prompt a daring expedition out of New York City. Professor Pierre Aronnax, his servant Conseil, and whaler Ned Land are among the crew of the United States Navy frigate Abraham Lincoln. Though they are fearless, nothing prepares them for the "creature" itself - the Nautilus - a powerful, destructive submarine years ahead of its time. At the helm of the vessel is the brilliant Captain Nemo, who pulls the men deep into the wonders of the seas and the dark depths of his mind.

Regarded as one of the great adventure novels of all time, Jules Verne's prophetic masterpiece, republished here in Lewis Page Mercier's translation, is at once an enthralling underwater quest and a tale of isolating madness.

Revised edition: Previously published as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, this edition of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

I loved this book!!

The narrator really reads the book nicely and does all of the voices of the characters perfectly. You really feel like one of the crew when you listen to this book. The descriptions of the Marine life were really fantastic, and really realistic.

love Jules Verne, not sure about narration

At points the narrator is really good and does characters well. However, a lot of the time it sounds like he's reading a serious news story. The intonation is all wrong for this story. It was difficult to listen to at times cos you just switch off. Not engaging. I enjoyed this book when I read it though. Jules Verne is a great author.
