20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

RonPaulCurriculum 8th Grade English Essay

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a classic book written by Jules Verne. Professor Aronnax, Counseil(his servant), Ned Land, a canadian harpooner, and Capt. Nemo traveling in the submarine Nautilus, engineered by Capt. Nemo.

Capt. Nemo kinda kidnapped them, and told them, they couldn’t leave the ship, although they weren’t hostages. Capt. Nemo is kind of a mysterious character, we don’t know much of his life before he was captain, all we know it wasn’t a good life.

One of my favorite parts of the book is when they go to the Atlantic and were trapped in an iceberg with no oxygen. They almost suffocated to death, but luckily no one died. It was one of the exciting points of the book. If you wanna know how they escaped, you should read the book.

My second favorite part is that they could wear these suits, that would allow them to walk on the ocean floor, it was pretty cool. The submarine had special features, like it glows in the dark, so they can see where their going, and had guns that work in water.

My last favorite part is the sea creatures. The exciting part is when a creature attacked the ship and it had only one eye. It’s a good thing they had a harpoonist on board. They also saw whales, but they didn’t attack.

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is a good book, Jules Verne did a very good job describing the themes in the book. The thing that bothers me the most is how he ends it, it’s like a cliffhanger, but there is no second book. If you wanna know the mystery, read the book.
