Twenty thousand leagues under the sea

 

This book is definitely one of Jules Verne’s best sellers to date; it showcases his talent in being able to build the perfect narrative and above all, making it plausible. The rich characters from captain Nemo to the rest of the crew with the rich descriptive scenes makes this story come alive right from page one; it has everything in it – from sea monsters to simmering tension between the central figures. A perfectly developed book and a must-read for all Verne fans
