20,000 Leagues Under The Sea by Jules Verne: Admissions Reading Challenge 3 – Book 2

November 2, 2018

I must admit, I find myself unsatisfied upon reaching the end of this adventure to reach what I can only call a cheat of an ending. No spoilers here, but I found the characters rather one-sided and uninspiring and Nemo himself contemptible; despite his eventual anguish I felt no pity for him or validation for his actions. Additionally, as a conservationist, I had a difficult time with the gleeful pursuit to destroy what they thought was an unique creature of the deep; though I understand this was the prevailing practice of the time and appropriate to the story, I found it distasteful and unpalatable.

Points: 28.0; Current point balance: 28.5
