Customer Reviews of Journey to the Centre of the Earth

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A lot of fun to read Jules Verne's "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" was fun to read. Despite being written in the early 1860s, the English translation used in the Puffin Classics edition of the story didn't feel old or quaint. In this edition Axel is Axel rather than Harry. I loved the humour in the story as the story unfolds in front of Axel's somewhat skeptical eyes. Or, is it teenage rebellion. Either way, Axel was a great foil to the Professor. Great read in many ways. Loved it.
