The "man who invented the future," Jules Verne created the prototype for modern science fiction. His prophetic 1870 adventure novel, featuring a bizarre underwater craft commanded by the mysterious Captain Nemo, predated the submarine. Unbearably thrilling and romantic and the crowning achievement of Verne's literary career, the book influenced H. G. Wells and later generations of writers. This extraordinary voyage into the depths unknown aboard the legendary submarine Nautilus--commanded by the brilliant, tragic Captain Nemo-explores both the limitless possibilities of science and the twisted labyrinth of the human mind.
