In 1858 a world-expanding telegraph cable was being laid across the Atlantic Ocean. But something went wrong--the cable kept getting cut. Was it monster or machine that awaited in the ocean depths? Narrator Peter Noble takes on the author's nineteenth-century-style prose with purpose and alacrity, giving proper voices to the many characters. But it's not until we hear the low, booming voice of Captain Ahab that the story jumps into high gear. In a wild mash-up of the sprawling sea worlds of Jules Verne and Herman Melville, the real-life historical entrepreneur Cyrus Field hires Ahab to captain the giant steamship THE GREAT EASTERN to get to the bottom of the mystery, while Captain Nemo's submarine lurks below.
