Main events were boring, characters pretentious

First of all, the whole book is spoiled by the summary.
It takes them 10/46 parts to establish that the submarine is in fact a submarine and not a monster.
Atlantis is like 2 paragraphs and overall very uninteresting.
The sea monsters are just random and at the very end of the book. Could have been ignored and would have not made any change to anything happening thereafter.

Why is this a classic?
