This is a great story that I could listen to multiple times and still enjoy. Anyone who hasn't had a chance to read or listen to this book is missing out on one of the greats. An awesome story with one of the best characters ever. Also, Andrew Wincott is by far the best narrator that I've heard.

Great story but I got lost in the details about the sea life classifications. I Recommend it!
First of all, the whole book is spoiled by the summary.
It takes them 10/46 parts to establish that the submarine is in fact a submarine and not a monster.
Atlantis is like 2 paragraphs and overall very uninteresting.
The sea monsters are just random and at the very end of the book. Could have been ignored and would have not made any change to anything happening thereafter.
Why is this a classic?
The style in while it is written is somewhat similar to that of a scientific journal article with few places for emotion. However you can't help but feel an attachment for each of the characters by the end.
