Professor Pierre Aronnax and his faithful servant, Conseil, embark on an amazing journey in Captain Nemo's Nautilus in Jules Verne's classic novel, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. While a hostile, relentless band of civilians pursue Nemo, Aronnax is astounded by the secret world of undersea life that surrounds Nautilus' massive observation windows. As they descend further beneath the polar icecap, toward the ocean's farthest depths, the crew encounters drowned cities, giant squids, and more mystery than they ever fathomed. First published in 1870, Verne's masterpiece remains one of literature's great adventures, as well as a seminal work of science fiction.More
Jules Verne’s classic gets a stirring performance by audiobook veteran Norman Dietz. Dietz takes listeners on a wild ride as an expedition of scientists begins a journey to discover what ripped a hole in the hull of the Cunard ship Scotia. As they travel to the polar regions where an alleged sea monster is decimating ships, Dietz keeps the pace upbeat. Dietz’s voice creates clear portraits of the members of the expedition and paints vivid pictures of their encounter with the mad genius Captain Nemo, his incredible vessel, the Nautilus, and the beauties of the world beneath the sea.
