Would you be surprised if I told you this book is about a French submarine but was written by an award-winning British sci-fi author? Would you also be surprised to know that it’s very heavily illustrated (just like one of those 1970s school versions of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea)?

If so, carry yourself to the nearest university. Anyone who can be surprised by anything in this day and age deserves to be studied by academics and scientists.

I know I loved the title of this book, as well as this part of the jacket blurb: “Onboard the crew succumbs to madness, betrayal, religious mania, and murder.”

But I still didn’t read it.
