In this thrilling adventure tale by the 'Father of Science Fiction', three men embark on an epic journey under the sea with the mysterious Captain Nemo aboard his submarine the Nautilus . Over the course of their fantastical voyage, they encounter the lost city of Atlantis, the South Pole and the corals of the Red Sea, and do battle with countless underwater adversaries. Verne's triumphant work of the imagination shows both the limitless possibilities of science and the dark depths of the human mind through the brilliant but vengeful Nemo.

display_description 'Immediately a long tentacle reached in through the opening like a snake, and a score of others waved about above it' -- At first they think it is a giant sea monster -- a vast black object, menacing the oceans and causing panic over the world. Yet when Professor Aronnax joins an expedition to hunt down the creature, he and his two companions discover it is a giant submarine, the Nautilus. Captured and held prisoner on board by its captain, Nemo -- unpredictable, enigmatic, exiled from humanity -- they have no choice but to travel the underwater depths with him, encountering coral reefs, polar ice, the city of Atlantis and a terrifying giant squid that tries to drag the Nautilus down into the deep.
