20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
This classic novel by Jules Verne, written in 1870, foretells with uncanny accuracy the inventions and advanced technology of the twentieth century and has become a literary stepping-stone for generations of science fiction writers. An American Frigate, tracking down a ship-sinking monster, faces not a living creature but an incredible invention-a fantastic submarine commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo.
