Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
I occasionally review field guides on Goodreads, and yet I actually preferred George Eliot's tangents about undder economy and local gossip.
Can we blame him, without knowing his past and knowing what men are capable of? There is no analogous story buried under the surface. It's a pretty ripping adventure complete with hidden underground worlds and dinosaurs and gleefully wrong-headed theories about geology.
