What Kind of Book is Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

Quotes from This Book

  • ‘I like to imagine that Captain Nemo is still alive, and I hope that the wonders of the underwater world may someday alleviate his grief, leading him to the peace he is looking for. And I also like to imagine that, to the question asked over a thousand years ago - Who can fathom the soundless depths?- only two men have earned the right to answer: Captain Nemo and I.’
