Descripción del producto
En la segunda mitad del siglo XIX, la desaparición de numerosos barcos sin una explicación clara hace que navegar los mares ya no sea seguro. Los datos señalan a un monstruo marino, mas grande que una ballena, dotado de una gran velocidad, potencia y que se torna, a veces, fosforescente. Una expedición que incluye al profesor Arronax, un naturalista, saldrá a la mar a intentar develar el misterio. Pero pronto serán atacados por la bestia y los sobrevivientes serán testigos de algo que no creerían si no lo vieran con sus propios ojos. A bordo de la incomparable embarcación submarina del particular capitán Nemo, podrán ver escenarios vedados a la mirada humana y los prodigios naturales que pueblan los abismos marinos.
En 20.000 Leguas de Viaje Submarino, Julio Verne hace gala, una vez más, de su capacidad para adelantarse a los desarrollo científicos y con su inacabable imaginación y sus magníficas descripciones nos transporta a otro de sus mundos de aventuras.
Biografía del autor
Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828, in France. Growing up near a river, the constant sight of ships sparked his interest in travel. As a young man, Verne even tried to run away and become a cabin boy. Fortunately, his father caught him, and soon Verne was off to study law in Paris. While there, Verne escaped the boredom of his studies by writing stories. When his father found out about this hobby, he stopped sending money for school. Verne started selling his stories, many of which became popular, including 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea in 1870. Before he died in 1905, the author bought a boat and sailed around Europe.
