I got this Kindle edition as one of the monthly free Whispersync deals, and my kids and I are following along while listening to the fabulous audio recording.
As one of the other reviewers mentioned, the Kindle version has omitted portions of the text that add dimension to the story. While some readers might appreciate a more streamlined presentation of the storyand might give this edition five stars because it's easier to readI'm giving this edition two stars because it cheats the author out of the artistry he intended. Thankfully, the audio that came with the Kindle edition has kept all that descriptive and rich language.
Because the Kindle edition does not contain the same text that the Audible version uses, we are unable to look up some of the vocabulary.
Part of the beauty of Kindle is its use as a tool by which we can learn vocabulary. If you want to read the book just to get the gist of the story, this is a good edition to use. If you are using it to enjoy the writing style of Jules Verne, you should try a different edition.
I liked this waaaay better than Journey to the Center of the Earth. Despite being so old, the science is not that inaccurate.
In Journey to the Center of the Earth the science was so outdated it was practically unreadable to me. Jules Verne focused on facts and details to make it feel real.
The fact that they are trying to hunt down a mythical beast is not that far fetched because "Either we know every variety of creature populating our planet or we do not. There's a strange fantasy feel to the ocean, this amazing part of our planet that we are still trying to understand.
The action in the plot starts right away and moves pretty fast for a classic. It does slow down in the middle because you are supposed to be in shock and awe about breathing under water and I was sadly not shocked by that. The voyages of the Nautilus follow up unfinished stories of real life explorers again adding this cool realism in fictional way.
Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea by Jules Verne
It feels like steampunk even though it's not. Or is it? Because everything is powered by electricity, not steam, but the technology is so charmingly old and everything is made of metal Well steampunk or not, the tech in this book is cool.
I loved the disbelief when they discover that Captain Nemo's ship is powered by electricity.
And then I'm impressed at the author's imagination and how well he predicted things. And then I laugh when someone gets shocked. It's a cycle between humor and awe but mostly humor. I loved the characters. The unflappable Conseil. The usually-pissed-off Ned Land. He was my favorite.
The mysterious Captain Nemo who is very environmentally friendly and save the whales which made him seem very odd to everyone else. I thought he was pretty cool and modern. The main character is I can't even remember his name.
So he would probably be the exception to the interesting characters award for this book. As I was listening to the unabridged audiobook, I would want to look up things in my kindle version and that's when I realized that most of the novels of Leagues Under the Sea are abridged.
The abridged version probably leaves out the lists and lists of fish that they see in the ocean. So many lists. So many fish. But listening to the lists on audiobook actually gave it this beautiful and mysterious atmosphere. Reading it unabridged might result in skimming of fish names. Join Now Login. Click to Preview.
