Lesson 15-8th grade English
This essay is about my 3 favorite parts in the book “Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea.” This book was written by the author Jules Verne. I hope you enjoy!
My first favorite part is when the professor gets thrown off the ship along with his companions, Ned Land and his manservant, Conseil. Ned Land saves both of them, then they get rescued by the mysterious Nautilus. Here they meet Captain Nemo, and try to tell him their story in 3 different languages.
My 2nd favorite is when they go on a night walk. They find the Lost City of Atlantis. They are in their diving suits, so they cannot speak to each other. Then, hey find a huge pearl that captain Nemo has been letting grow so it was super big. They let it stay there to grow bigger.
The last part is when they escape. Captain Nemo sunk a ship and Professor Aronnax, Ned Land, and Conseil are frightened and want to get off the ship as soon as possible. Professor Aronnax is going through Captain Nemo’s lounge and he sees captain Nemo. The captain seems overthrown with grief and the professor is barely able to escape. The friends manage to get in the skiff, and are swept into a whirlpool. They wake up on an island in a hut. The professor never found out what happened to captain Nemo, but does not regret his time with him.
