Well, this is a bit difficult to grade. On the one hand, it tells an interesting adventure through the various seas of the earth. On the other hand, it's a long, tedious, boring cataloging of all kinds of under-sea flora and fauna, complete with a rather lengthy taxonomy of each, and so forth. I thought I might die before I got to the end.

So, it seems that there is a problem in shipping lanes. Occasionally a giant "Narwhal", or something, appears, occasionally spearing and sinking ships. So, a Navy frigate is sent off to investigate. Some of the folks on the frigate include, Pierre Arronnax, Professor at the Paris Museum of Natural History, Conseil, his manservant, and Ned Land, the King of the Harpooners. Eventually, they find the Narwhal. The frigate is pierced, but Arronnax, Conseil, and Land are all thrown into the water. The "Narwhal" rescues them and takes them on board. It turns out to be a rather fantastic submarine. It's captain is one Capt. Nemo. Nemo means "no man" in Latin.

Well, they're essentially prisoners on the submarine, the Nautilus, but they have free run of the vessel. The submarine then goes about circumnavigating the globe and checks out all the delights of the seas in every corner of the earth. They travel all over the place, even to the South Pole, which Verne didn't appear to know was embedded in a solid landmass. He rather thought it would be like the North Pole, just a frozen part of the sea.

Anyway, the travel is sort of interesting, but we get page after interminable page about all the flora and fauna that they see along the way, and one wants, after a time, to go back 150 years and give Verne a generous bop on the head.

My recollection from 1954 is that the movie was rather fun, and not nearly so boring. I tried checking it out on Hoopla, but although it was "in their collection", it wasn't currently available...to anyone. Gah!

I read this with my kids. It was ok for me, but they got bored about halfway through with a lot of the details, so we switched to an abridged kid version that they found much more palatable. My kids generally have a high tolerance for this sort of book. As far as I got through it, I felt mostly kind of meh about it. ( )

Picked this back up after Vol I back in September. I found the first half quite a bit, well, boring, frankly. I'm glad I decided to pick it up again, though, because I found that I enjoyed Vol. II quite a bit (well, mostly). I don't know if that's due to any particular change in the narrative style and/or structure between parts, or if it was a change in my own attitude and/or circumstances coming back to it. Perhaps I just learned to handle the boring parts better.

Verne is clearly a great describer, but I think many of the places where I got bogged down is with that description. My inner cynic keeps reminding me that he was paid by the word as this story was originally serialized. I've been assured that's not (wholly) the case, and as part of my ongoing attempt to stifle the misanthropic homunculus that whispers to me from the back of my brain, I'll give Vern the benefit of the doubt. I do suspect, however, that it was a form of Asperger's which compelled Jules to create vast lists of marine life. (I did get a kick how at one point Dr. Aronnax says that their current location didn't have very many different species of fish than a previous location, and then he went on to name them all anyway.)

Also, as I went along I became less dogmatic about reading the explanatory notes, which sped the reading along a bit. Some of the notes in this volume are quite enlightening, but others are dreadfully boring — to the point of vying with Verne's own fish lists. I suppose that's what you get when you read a critical edition... Once I got past the urge to read the text behind every asterisk, I was better able to "lose" (in a good way) myself in the story.

So, it was worth the read, even if it took me awhile to realize it. That said, I'm not sure I'll be reading it again anytime soon. ( )

En la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, la desaparición de numerosos barcos sin una explicación clara hace que navegar los mares ya no sea seguro. Los datos señalan a un monstruo marino, mas grande que una ballena, dotado de una gran velocidad, potencia y que se torna, a veces, fosforescente. En esta obra Julio Verne hace gala, una vez más, de su capacidad para adelantarse a los desarrollo científicos y con su inacabable imaginación y sus magníficas descripciones nos transporta a otro de sus mundos de aventuras

Chi è mai il capitano Nemo se non un individuo che ha scelto di rifiutare il mondo in cui è vissuto, le sue regole, i suoi sogni, la sua crudeltà per cercar (inutilmente, forse) pace in un universo diverso, nelle profondità marine in cui i sogni sembrano acquisire concretezza, in cui, lontano dal vano strepito del mondo, è possibile coltivare lo spirito. Chi è questo novello barone rampante che si affranca dal mondo che gli aveva sottratto quanto di più prezioso possedeva, per non farvi più ritorno, scegliendo un volontario esilio a una passiva connivenza, se non un indomito ribelle, un poeta volto a cogliere orizzonti ancora preclusi alla gretta visione dell'uomo medio? Chi è Nemo, questo fantasma, questo 'nessuno' che affascina, conquista, ma si fa anche temere e contestare in più di un'occasione, se non un personaggio immortale? ( )

At ten o'clock in the evening the sky was on fire. The atmosphere was streaked with vivid lightning. I could not bear the brightness of it; while the captain, looking at it, seemed to envy the spirit of the tempest.
