2.0 von 5 Sternen I did not like this book.
The book 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a really disapointing book. Most of the story was boring and not exciting. When it got interesting it just was not as good as other books. I thought this was going to be a good book. The end was the most disapointing part. I would not recommend this book for people my age.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sein bestes Buch!, 13. Februar 2003
Von Ein Kunde
Ich bin durch dieses Buch zum absoluten Jules Verne - Fan mutiert. Eigentlich habe ich mir das Buch zunächst nur bestellt, weil es bei diesem Verlag so billig war. Als ich jedoch anfing zu lesen, war ich vollends begeistert. Verne beschreibt die Technik der Nautilus und die marine Tierwelt atemberaubend schön und aufregend. Die Handlung wird dabei fast Nebensache. Das einzige Problem stellten für mich die vielen Fachausdrücke dar, die ich natürlich beim normalen Schulenglisch nie zu hören bekommen hatte. Auch meine Freundin, die sich sehr für Biologie interessiert fand es sehr amüsant, die (teilweise überholten) Vorstellungen eines Jules Verne über Wale, Quallen und anderes Meeresgetier zu lesen.
Inhalt: Arronax und sein Diener Conseil machen sich auf die Suche nach einem "Seeungeheuer", das die Weltmeere unsicher macht. Dabei handelt es sich jedoch um die Nautilus, das Schiff des Kapitän Nemo, an dessen Seite Arronax und Conseil Abenteuer in den Tiefen des Meeres bestreiten werden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, though sometimes a bit difficult to understand., 29. Juni 2000
Rezension bezieht sich auf: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Taschenbuch)
I first read this book when I was in the 5th grade. I am a big reader so I like challenging books. The beginning was a little slow and dull, but after the men were captured by the Nautilus it became MUCH more interesting.
Life abord the Nautilus was quite interesting. Instead of meat (which they could not get) they ate many kinds of fish and sea plants, which, unless you were told, were indistiguishable from land- raised meat and vegetables. Thoguh they were prisoners, the doctor and his friends were treated like guests. They had many great adventures before finaly escaping.
All in all, very good. I reccomend this to anyone who likes a bit of adventure.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The True Verne, 1. August 2000
Von 
J. Angus Macdonald "bibliovore" (Concord, CA United States) - Alle meine Rezensionen ansehen
(REAL NAME)   
One of the great problems with Jules Verne is that in the English speaking world he is relagated to the category of "Boys' Own Adventures". On the Continent, however, he is considered a brilliant social commentator, and biting satirist, AND a man who predicted the future. This is a volume that helps set matters to the right.
If you know of "20,000 Leagues" already, you will find little different at first. The plot is still the plot. Nemo is still Nemo, Prof. Aronnax is still pompous and fascinated by the Nautilus and Ned Land....
Ned Land is a flaming socialist.
This is one of the major shifts between the original French and the "cleaned up" English editions. Most of the science of the day was pulled out as a "dull read" and all the Socialism, anti-English remarks, and other commentaries of a "questionable nature" were excised. We Americans have unfortunately been until only very recently only able to find these poor early translations, or translations based on these poor translations. There is much more to Verne than submarines and diving suits. He is a man with a vision of his times, both scientific and political, and his books underline this strongly.
English readers, demand your Verne well-translated! Do not allow yourself to be fobbed off with bowlderized versions! To be able to read as he wrote himself (well, in English, for those of us who don't read French...) is a greater pleasure than merely an amusing old science-fiction story from the 19th century. Reading this book, as Verne /meant/ it to be read, if a pleasure, but also a struggle to understand ourselves and our relationship to the oceans themselves.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The first submarine novel., 5. Juni 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Taschenbuch)
This is Verne's classic novel about Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus. What really fascinated me when reading this story and other Verne novels was not only Verne's contributions to the science fiction genre, but his founding of a whole new genre, one that, as far as I know, he has never been given credit. I think Verne was one of the first to write the techno-novel, a work that is filled with technical details ala Tom Clancy. For this novel, Verne did considerable research to describe what was known as accurately as possible. Professor Arronax and his servant Conseil board a U. S. ship that is searching for a monster that has sunk a number of other ships. They discover that it isn't a monster at all but a submarine, captained by a mysterious man known only as Nemo (Verne will present readers with Nemo once again in "The Mysterious Island"). Arronax, Conseil, and an American harpooner named Ned Land travel with Nemo and see many wonderous things and have many adventures. Verne's "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" has gotten some very poor reviews over the decades since it first appeared in 1869. In many cases, it was because of the translation and not because of Verne. A number of the early translators inserted their own sections with their own ideas and opinions and deleted much of Verne's own words. So, readers should be aware of the translator. I read an excellent translation by Walter James Miller that was also annotated. Such an annotated volume can prove to be very helpful to teenagers getting acquainted with Nemo and his submarine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It was great! I loved it!, 31. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Taschenbuch)
I loved this book and I would recommend this book to anyone. I think you should read this book before you leave High School. On a scale of one to five, one being the worst and five being the best. I would give it a five. I really enjoyed this book. The characters were very realistic and had life and emotion so you could relate to the characters their fear their joy and their sadness. They are three-dimensional characters. Not some flat two-dimensional characters who not feel and just act. It's easy to see why it's a classic. The book has a lot of action and adventure and even some mystery and lots of suspense. If you love any of these things, you should read this book. I found the way Conseil talks strange. Talking always in the third person I mean. Who actually goes around calling themselves by their first name? Looking up all the different animal and plant names that appear in this story must have taken forever as well as knowing where all these places were. He amazing he can fit all this information into one book an make it interesting. From reading this book, it refreshed my memory of the places in the world. The time from they were captured until they escaped only lasted six months. It seems to see all that they did see would have taken over a year. They did travel 60,000 miles. 1 leauge = 3 miles. Over all a great book and I loved it and you will to. Its a good sized book but don't be intimidated by it once you start its hard to stop.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Classic scientific-minded story with a disappointing ending, 25. Februar 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I really enjoy books that revolve around science... especially when they were written during the 1800s and early 1900s. It is very entertaining to discover what these people believed and to compare their beliefs to ours in modern times. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea is entertaining in this fashion. Jules Verne is suprisingly accurate in his depiction of a modern-day electric submarine and its workings... although he doesn't go into the minute details that I was hoping for. The ending of this book is a tremendous let-down with regards to the character of Captain Nemo. Throughout the entire book, the Captain's background is built up to be a giant mystery... which simply begs for resolution. I couldn't wait to reach the end of the book in order to find out why Captain Nemo was the way he was. This resolution never comes. Never. This left me with the opinion that Jules Verne simply wasn't a talented storyteller, and never bothered to fill out and completely think about the character of Captain Nemo. Anyone can think up fantastic situations and theories... but the real talent comes in explaining them in a plausible way to the reader. It's akin to watching a movie where lots of incredible things happen to the main characters, only to have them wake up stating that it was all a dream.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Living up to classical status, 20. Februar 1999
Von Ein Kunde
This is the first book that I "experienced" from Jules Verne. He is certainly a master in mixing scientific facts with literary fiction. A true visionary. Although I have seen various movie versions, I was still surprised at some of the events in this story. The book seemed to move along well besides a relatively slow begining. It has everything a great story should have. Mystery, adventure, action, exotic locations and even a bit of romance, albeit it is with Nemo and the Sea.
This particular version was an "audio book" performed by Harlan Ellison. His narration was inspired. I also enjoyed his voice characterizations, especially the impersonation of James Mason's Captain Nemo. It had a reminiscent quality. Music and sound effects would have been a nice touch as long as it wouldn't be distracting. For me, the book ended too quickly. I wanted to hear more of their adventures and would have also liked to have read more about Nemo's past. Although, Verne does tell us more in "The Mysterious Island". Another book I shall look forward in taking up soon. I am sure it will be an equally pleasing experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 3 magnificent people take you 20,000 leagues under the sea!, 30. Juni 1998
A scientist, his sidekick and a big strong sailor are going to have their lives changed forever when they are sent to capture a giant octopus. But, instead, they fall overboard and find out what they think is an octopus is really a giant submarine with a Captain Nimo and a crew that speaks their own language (which the trio calls "the submarine language")! In this submarine, they go on millions of adventures like: tunneling through blocks of ice in the antartic, zooming through tunnels from sea to sea, and seeing every different kind of fish you could ever imagine. The only problem is the scientist's sidekick joins with the big sailor, Ned, and together they try to escape. They have many of their own adventures too, like when they try to escape the first time and they almost get caught by cannibals. The second time they escape and write a story which you will read if you want to read it and it's called, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea". If you're looking for an adventurous book that's exciting and funny too, then just read the book I did a review on. Lindsey (age 9)

4.0 von 5 Sternen A underwater adventure, 21. März 2000
Von 
Rezension bezieht sich auf: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Taschenbuch)
20,000 leagues under the sea is a ok book if you like to go into detail about every little thing. Well anyways, the Professor Annorax is telling the story and it is kind of weird at the begining. I though that it was the end of the book but it really was just the begining. The begining starts of slow but once you get into it, it gets pretty good. Well, everyone around the world is talking about this so called narwhale in the ocean destroying ships. It really isn't a narwhale, but I am not going to tell you because it ruins the story. Well the nautlis, is the submarine that goes underwater and explores the ocean underwater forests. It is really interesting, because it gets into detail about every little thing. Well the nautlis gets attackeed by this cetcean, its a kind of ocean animal. But they escape and another problem is in store for the nautlis and Captain Nemo.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun, exciting, and adventurous!, 3. Mai 2000
This book is a great joy to read. It's a wonderful exercise in imagination and visualizing everything inside my head. So many things in popular culture today have been influenced by what's in this book. Before I ever read this book, I was was primarily familiar with it because of the part with the giant squid. So imagine my surprise to find out that that part of the book was just a few pages long! But that's perfectly OK, because the rest of the book has plenty of things going for it. Jules Verne had a very good imagination. His depiction of the submarine turned out to be quite accurate with regards to what actually was turned into reality during the 20th century. This book is a lot of fun, and if you like it then I strongly recommend that you also read its sequel MYSTERIOUS ISLAND.
