'The creature's teeth were buried in the gunwale, and it lifted the whole thing out of the water like a lion can a roebuck...'

Scientist Pierre Aronnax, together with his faithful servant Conseil and the whaler Ned Land, is invited to join a hazardous voyage to the Pacific Ocean to hunt down a terrifying sea monster. But on attacking it, they discover that it is in fact an enormous submarine in disguise, commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Nemo takes them on board to join his crew, and their ensuing quests, explorations and misfortunes are among the greatest adventure stories ever told.
