Read-A-Thon Mini-Review #4

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne

It took me a little while to get into, but once it got me, it got me good. Jules Verne's classic Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is an epic story of vast dimensions and should be read by all. I've never been very good at science and the sea I know next to nothing about so I accept a lot of what I read, but I do know enough to know that Verne obviously didn't know about decompression sickness also known as diver's disease. Of course many things have been discovered since he wrote this book in 1869, but I still think it paints a solid and fantastical imagery of how life under the sea looks like.

216 pages / published in 1869
