The narrow panel had scarcely closed upon me when I was enveloped by profound darkness. A rapid shudder froze my very veins.
A glorious mission to rid the seas of a monstrous creature becomes a terrifying nightmare when Professor Aronnax, Conseil and the harpooner Ned Land are thrown overboard. For the frigate has struck bare metal: the huge marine animal which has haunted the waters is no living beast, but a spectacular man-made vessel, and the three men find themselves the helpless prisoners of Captain Nemo.
Resigned to their fate, they begin a miraculous journey on this phenomenal submarine ship which can travel through waters never before explored. And what marvels the ocean has in store! For the Professor, at least, this voyage is one he would not have missed for the world!
This tremendous story by the 'Father of Science Fiction' is enjoyed as much today as when it first appeared over a century ago.
