Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Word Cloud Classics)
Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea tells the classic story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus as seen from the point of view of Professor Pierre Aronnax, who was commissioned to find the mysterious sea monster responsible for sinking ships. Written by French science fiction writer Jules Verne in 1870, the novel illuminates themes that transcend time, such as man versus nature, freedom, and revenge.
From the minute I saw these books, I've been in love with them. These beautifully bound versions of timeless literature feature colorful, heat burnished faux leather covers. The modern design features quotes from each story embossed into the cover and specially designed end papers. The smaller format (about 5.5" x 8") makes them great travel companions - they even fit in my purse! Books are unabridged so they vary in length from 200 to 600 pages. Because of their similar size and durable feel, they look great on a bookshelf and would make a great foundation for your personal library. They would also make a great gift for your eager reader. I've already purchased a few and plan to order many more. - Laura
