3. Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea (Jules Verne)


Many well-known science fiction movies owe their origins to books. As well as Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, Jules Verne also wrote Journey to the Centre of the Earth (perhaps more fantasy than science fiction, although the two genres often cross over). The book is almost 150 years old, and shows how imaginative early writers of science fiction could be.
