Summary

Professor Pierre Aronnax is part of a team sent to investigate reports of a sea monster—suspected to be a narwhal—off the coast of New York. They soon discover that the monster is in fact a submarine called the Nautilus, headed by Captain Nemo, an enigmatic man who has withdrawn from the world. When Arronnax and his team are taken prisoner by Nemo, the Nautilus heads into the deepest fathoms of the seas where adventure and discovery await.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Seas is a science-fiction classic that has been adapted into numerous films, television episodes, comic books and graphic novels. This edition uses the 1991 F. P. Walter translation which restores a great deal of material that was cut in the original English translations of the work.
