Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Definitely a book worth checking out, I couldn't put it down! It was the first book that got me into the rest of Verne's writing and I am so glad a read it. The cover on this edition is also beautiful, though I found the colours were not as vibrant as they were on screen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best book that I have ever read. It is a classic and will be read for years to come. It is definitely a book worth checking out. Once you start the book you will not won't to but it down. Once you read a Jules Verne you will won't to read his other books. There are many written styles to chose from any one is as good as others.
