Product description

Science and adventure are electrifying accomplices in Jules Verne's classic "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea". This epic and enduring tale anticipates not just wonders such as electric light and submarine navigation, but the obsession with technology and travel that today so shapes our lives. It is Verne's inspired foresight, combined with his extraordinary talent for storytelling, that continue to make this novel such a compelling read. The excitement this adventure caused around the world when it was first published 150 years ago can still be very easily imagined indeed in the 21st century.

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was born in Nantes, France, and trained for the law. After moving to Paris, he mixed with literary giants such as Alexander Dumas and Victor Hugo. His first science-based novel was Five Weeks in a Balloon in 1862, which made him famous. He wrote dozens more adventures including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1869 and Around the World in Eighty Days in 1872. He died in Amiens.
