Professor Otto Lidenbrock's great adventure begins by chance when a scrap of paper drops out of an ancient book he has just bought. The coded inscription reveals the existence of a passageway leading to the centre of the earth and that the entrance lies within the crater of an extinct volcano in Iceland.

The professor travels to Iceland accompanied by his nephew, Axel, a keen young geologist. Together with a Swiss guide, they descend into the bowels of the earth where an amazing prehistoric world awaits them.

Written in 1864, Journey to the Centre of the Earth established Verne as a pioneer of science fiction. This edition has been revised and improved for a modern readership.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay It took me forever to get through this book. I felt like the plot didn't start to grip me until around halfway through so I kept putting it down. Also, unfortunately, in the copy that I have (Penguin Classics) the chapter titles almost always give away what is about to happen in the following chapter. It was difficult to be surprised. Despite this it was a good classic to read and really imaginative for its time.

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.

There are many written styles to chose from any one is as good as others.
