Widely regarded as the father of modern science fiction, Jules Verne (1828-1905) wrote more than seventy books and created hundreds of memorable characters. His most popular novel, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, is not only a brilliant piece of scientific prophecy, but also a thrilling story with superb, subtle characterizations.

Still a favorite of mine. I love Verne and this is by far him at the height of his writing prowess. This is the birth of steampunk.
Good, but sometimes too technical. Is captain nemo a bad guy or a good guy?
