The Story of Captain Nemo

The Story of Captain Nemo

Eggers, Dave

Synopsis:
A teenage boy and his uncle embark on the adventure of their lives "Don't you worry, son. Whatever it is that's been killing the sailors, I will kill it." In this science-fiction classic-reimagined by Dave Eggers in modern times, and from the point of view of the fourteen-year-old Consuelo-the famous oceanographer Pierre Arronax sets sail from New York to hunt down a mysterious sea-monster which has been terrorizing the oceans, wrecking ship after ship and causing countless deaths. But they discover an even stranger truth: the "sea-monster" is in fact a submarine, captained by Nemo, who is living in self-imposed exile in international waters.

Consuelo and Arronax join Nemo on the submarine, and so begin their exciting adventures ...Dave Eggers is the author of many books for adults and a few for young people, including The Wild Things. He is the co-founder of 826 National, a network of writing, tutoring and publishing centres for youth. A sister centre, The Ministry of Stories, opened in East London in 2010.
