TWENTY-THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA – Jules Verne (10 Point Review)

A standalone novel.

Genre: Classic Fiction – Children’s Adventure
Target Audience: 8+ 
Goodreads Rating: 
3/5

  1. It’s a really interesting concept and still relevant despite being first released in 1869.
  2. Found the characters to be unrelatable and very 2D.
  3. The technology is pretty advance given its time of release.
  4. Not much happened that’s memorable. I remember reading trying to figure how long it would take me to finish, opposed to properly enjoying it.
  5. The writing is very quick and easy to follow.
  6. Couldn’t attach myself to the story in any way. I didn’t care for the characters or the plot.
  7. If the characters had more detail to their personalities, I’m still certain I wouldn’t like them.
  8. I was hoping they’d go to Atlantis – mermaids would’ve been cool too.
  9. I couldn’t really see the point of the story.
  10. I don’t regret reading it.
