I know I said I never really read non-fiction books, but at a show up in Minneapolis a guy was giving me a hard time about my name being nemo and not having read "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea".
And with it being so easy to get and read a book on my phone, I searched for it. Well I found a collection of 20 of Jules Verne books for only $3.99. Now how could I pass that up? Also it’s a lendable book so if anyone wants to read one just send me an e-mail and I would be more than happy to lend it to you. First of all it was really cool to read the name "Captain Nemo" on every other page. Though much of the book was just that dude calling out things he saw - red fish, blue fish, and some parts had me clicking over to find it on a map. The story itself was just ok for my taste, it did give me an insight to how a book about my touring could be done. But the idea that nothing else matters but his crew and the oceans are something I can see, however on land in a van it can't happen. But still the list after list after list kinda put me to sleep, but when the real action came, like when they were stuck in the ice or battling the different fish it was more than welcomed.
Having known very little about Verne, and most of that is thru the steam punk movements and the end of Back To The Future 3, I pictured in my mind what I could piece together from that. I didn’t really have any great visuals on my own, I’m not really as creative as people would think I am. After watching the movies both the 1916 one and the 1950’s one I’m even more mixed up about it all, I might have to read this book again. I did hear a new 3D movie was going to be coming out real soon, so who knows.
