Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea

Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea - Jules Verne It is easy to dive in and get completely lost in Verne's world of rainbow colored fish, glittering pearls and sunken underwater cities. At times it almost felt like I was about to drown and suffocate in the richness of his descriptions and the heavy amount of specific facts of technology and geography - but thankfully, I made it through.
Some aspects of this book did not appeal to me; I am not a huge fan of the typical Odyssey, and I often skip the practical facts. But luckily Verne had included a haunting tale of an isolated Captain, who had forsaken humanity and every form of civilization. That really spoke to me.
