very strange book, would not really recommend

I feel like my view of this book is more of a "it's not you, its me" situation. the only reason i read this book was for school (maybe that tainted my view of it; i despise reading for a grade). never the less, here's my opinion. It is extremely hard to understand due to the age of the book, with word choice that would never be used today. It really doesn't deliver on plot, all the characters but one are, quite frankly, utter crap. It seems to discard all of these for a very prolonged fictional underwater sightseeing tour. That's really the best way to describe this book, and that is NOT what a book should be. It is half gouge-your-eyes-out boring, and half hard to understand, but maybe you will have better luck than I did reading this piece of literary trash.
