Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828, in France. Growing up near a river, the constant sight of ships sparked his interest in travel. As a young man, Verne even tried to run away and become a cabin boy. Fortunately, his father caught him, and soon Verne was off to study law in Paris. While there, Verne escaped the boredom of his studies by writing stories. When his father found out about this hobby, he stopped sending money for school. Verne started selling his stories, many of which became popular, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. Before he died in 1905, the author bought a boat and sailed around Europe.

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.
the Antarctic Sea with thrilling passages of scientific value.
The author also captures the reader by an unclear but fascinating description of the main-character, Nemo, and the crew on board, emotional and psychological attempts to explain
their characters, geographical descriptions of places all around
the world and undersea, and various descriptions of different
foreign cultures. Considering that the author lived one hundred
years ago, when nobody had heard of submarines before nor would
imagine their invention, this book can be called a successful
piece of fiction containing scientific details and a compelling
story all in one. Although certain scientific descriptions - for instance the nomenclatures of fishes etc. - might appear
a bit boring to the "ordinary" reader (the layman), one chapter
after another is followed by exciting events which are going to
make the voyage unforgettable, both to the characters involved
and to the reader himself.
The book has an "open" ending, Captain Nemo stays a mystery to the reader, although the reader might be more able to interpret what had really happened to the captain who preferred life undersea to life on the continent.
A must for every Jules Verne-fan and better than any movie of this novel.
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.
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.
