Genre: Classic Fiction – Children’s Adventure

Goodreads Rating: 3/5
- It’s a really interesting concept and still relevant despite being first released in 1869.
- Found the characters to be unrelatable and very 2D.
- The technology is pretty advance given its time of release.
- Not much happened that’s memorable. I remember reading trying to figure how long it would take me to finish, opposed to properly enjoying it.
- The writing is very quick and easy to follow.
- Couldn’t attach myself to the story in any way. I didn’t care for the characters or the plot.
- If the characters had more detail to their personalities, I’m still certain I wouldn’t like them.
- I was hoping they’d go to Atlantis – mermaids would’ve been cool too.
- I couldn’t really see the point of the story.
- I don’t regret reading it.
French naturalist Dr. Aronnax embarks on an expedition to hunt down a sea monster, only to discover instead the Nautilus, a remarkable submarine built by the enigmatic Captain Nemo. Together Nemo and Aronnax explore the underwater marvels, undergo a transcendent experience amongst the ruins of Atlantis, and plant a black flag at the South Pole. But Nemo’s mission is one of revenge-and his methods coldly efficient.
