20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Although Captain Nemo created some wonderful inventions, he is unwilling to share his ideas with others because he harbors hate in his heart. Why is he unwilling to forgive? Do his feelings keep him from helping mankind?

Jules Verne’s book 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea was written in 1870, long before men imagined inventions like submarines. Do you know what other things Verne wrote about long before they were invented? You can research more in his other books, Around The World In Eighty Days and A Journey To The Center Of The Earth. (Both have also been made into movies.)
