This most popular science fiction by the French Novelist Jules Verne unravels an exotic and fascinating underwater world as it presents the expeditions of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilius ,as narrated by Professor Pierre Aronnax.
Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and an expert field, is invited to join a voyage arranged by the US government to track down and attack a mysterious monster that destroys all ships. Their team starts its search, but in vain. Finally, as they charge into a battle, they miserably fail. With the damage of their ship, they are thrown overboard. When they think they're on the "hide of the creature" they're actually on a large metal construction, which is the submarine of Captain Nemo. What follows are their adventures aboard Nautilius.
By presenting a virtual world of submarines, which did not exist during his time, Jules Verne had actually tried to sound prophetic. The amazing potentialities of the submarines in military operations have been revealed through the ideas shared by Captain Nemo. The underlying themes of the book- man's constant quest for adventure and his thirst for knowledge- have been tactfully interwoven with the enthusiasm and motivation with which Captain Nemo proceeds with his voyage. The book holds the interests of not only those with a scientific bent of mind, but also others, as it is highly inspiring and innovative.
