    Es un libro interesante y muy entretenido. Mis [email protected] en su mayoría lo han disfrutado. Tiene acción y emotividad, así como conflictos y dramas. En ocasiones se hace complicado entender las acciones y motivaciones de las reacciones y actuaciones de algunos personajes, pero vale la pena. Su lectura es ágil y agradecida y se nota que Verne es un autor documentado y culto, lo cual es muy de agradecer.

    This was our latest family read. The boys all enjoyed the action and under water adventures...from mysterious "monsters" to near death encounters with sharks and octopus. We then watched the movie and while there were some differences, it was fun to visually enjoy the story. (The boys love to compare and contrast) Of course, watching Kirk Douglas in his prime was pretty cool too. This was our latest family read.
