    I gave this book a 4 star rating because it caught my attention. This book is about the story of three accidental visitors to an underwater world hosted by the mysterious Captain Nemo. From their arrival on board the Nautilus, the scholarly Professor Aronnax, loyal Conseil, and adventurous Ned Land are torn between exploring the new wonders of their surroundings and finding a way to escape. They originally went to Nautilus to find out what species of undiscovered whale has been damaging world shipping. However, far from encountering a whale that has wrecked world shipping, they soon find themselves on the iron plating of a new kind of vessel, a submarine. Read this book to find out more. I made a connection with this book because I saw the front cover had the tentacles and the tentacles were wrapped around the ship and the ship looked like it was sinking.
