    In one of the novel's most famous episodes, the above-cited battle with a school of giant squidone of the monsters captures a crew member. To their dismay they realize they are heading toward a giant whirlpool--one that no ship has ever survived. Everyone must take turns trying to break a hole in the ice so the vessel can get through. Consell, as Aronnax's loyal servant, is also interested in the marine biology aspect of their adventure; however, Ned Land whose interest is less in conserving the environment under the ocean and more in harpooning it, does not find more than a passing and tourist-like interest in the wonders of the undersea world.

    He was deep in the first volume of his latest book — whose working title had recently changed from Journey Under the Waters to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea — and it was going well. They are never to leave the vessel again. Aronnax, Conseil and Land go overboard. The Nautilus as imagined by Jules Verne. It is much bigger and faster than a whale. A mere few feet beneath the waves, their reign ceases, their evil drowns.
