20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, by Jules Verne

I read the book 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, by Jules Verne. This book can be quite slow in the beginning and might be hard to understand, but it is still a great book. 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea is a famous classic book that was published in 1869. The book is mainly about the United States government trying to find a mysterious creature that is sinking many ships. The U.S. government send Pierre Aronnax, a scientist, along with, Conseil, and Ned Land the harpooner to kill or capture this monster. They board the ship called the Abraham Lincoln. On their journey to find the creature, they get attacked by it and Pierre Aronnax, Conseil and Ned Land go overboard. When they land, they land on a submarine vessel and they are taken as prisoners. Once they are taken as prisoners, they meat Captain Nemo, the commander or captain of the submarine called the Nautilus. He offers them a stay at the Nautilus and freedom unless, they go back to their cells when asked.

I enjoyed this book as it got closer to the climax because in the beginning it was very boring and slow. My opinion of this book would be good because it was very interesting. I recommend this book to people who can read long books because this book is quite lengthy. Also, I recommend this book to people how like classical or science fiction stories because this book can be considered both.
