Description

'Don't you worry, son. Whatever it is that's been killing the sailors, I will kill it.' In this science-fiction classic - reimagined by Dave Eggers in modern times, and from the point of view of the fourteen-year-old Consuelo - the famous oceanographer Pierre Arronax sets sail from New York. His aim: to hunt down a mysterious sea-monster which has been terrorising the oceans, wrecking ship after ship and causing countless deaths. But they discover an even stranger truth: the 'sea-monster' is in fact a submarine, captained by Nemo, and he is living in self-imposed exile in international waters. Consuelo and Arronax join Nemo on the submarine, and so begin their exciting adventures.
