Listener Opinions

    " I can't deny the originality and influence of Vernes work but the science in this is so dodgy that even with my limited knowledge of the subject I was able to call "shenanigans" on more than one occasion. More fantasy-fiction than science-fiction then and, much like the others of his that I've read, contains tons of originality but is scant on development for, potentially, very interesting characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 2/9/2014

    " A fun, short, interesting read. Jules Verne is very good at science fiction, but I did prefer Around the World in 80 Days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bjorn | 1/29/2014

    " In this book, Professor Lidenbrock who is a geologist, finds an ancient letter written by an ancient explorer that tells of a tunnel to the center of the earth. He decides to go and find the tunnel, and brings his nephew along. They find the tunnel and with a guide named Hans, explore to the center of the earth. This is my second Jules Verne book I have read (after 20,000 Leagues under the sea) and I enjoyed this book as much as the last one I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicholas Griffith | 1/29/2014

    " My first Jules Verne novel. This was highly entertaining and wonderful for those of us raised on the corresponding James Mason film. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Celeste | 1/23/2014

    " The journey was great at times. The characters fell a bit short. With such an epic adventure I expected equally great adventurers but I didn't get it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich | 1/22/2014

    " Even though I marked this as a 3, I think it is still an important read. While not as future proof of some of his other books, Verne does an amazing job making science fun. I cannot imagine reading this book in 1864, I am sure it caused quite a stir. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joni | 1/21/2014

    " Re-read since high school. Slow but interesting if you stick with it "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JR McCravy | 1/14/2014

    " reading this for the first time since childhood. A bit of a slow starter, but overall an entertaining and relaxing book to zip through. Jules Verne writing sci-fi/adventure can do no wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keziah | 1/11/2014

    " Highly recommended for those who won't bother to give up logic for a bit of time. A great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 12/5/2013

    " Excellent, fun story, even if it is a classic. Adventure, sparkly rocks, fossils, prehistoric beasties. The tale started off with an ancient Icelandic cipher and a trip to Reykjavik, both things I was not expecting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bianca | 11/28/2013

    " This book made me want to learn Icelandic and science, haha! Absolutely loved it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Пламен Дерменджиев | 6/30/2013

    " It was pleasure reading this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irish | 5/30/2013

    " Good plot although it was hard to relate on technical stuffs but I were able to understand it, my imagination would run wild because of Verne's detailed description of Axel's travel in the centre of the Earth, "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Wilkinson | 2/28/2013

    " A superb yarn, though reading it after seeing the 1960's film, it seemed a little disappointing towards the end. I very much enjoy Verne's prose and style (given it's been translated). The story is, of course, absured. But it's no less enjoyable for all that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kee | 2/18/2013

    " Classic book by the master of science fiction. excellent read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trina | 12/23/2012

    " I really enjoyed this book. It's a fantastic telling of a story of three people trying to make it to the centre of the world. All the more amazing when you realise it's all imagination because Verne couldn't have known anything about what was under the surface of our planet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann Jacob | 11/15/2012

    " This was the first book i read by jules verne, suggested by my sister. I was amazed by his imagination! The way he gives a detailed description about the surroundings there! Just awesome!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley C | 8/7/2012

    " Just finished the book and I enjoyed every minute of it. I came to like the professors personality despite how unreasonsble, impatient and short tempered he was. A fantastic read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arun | 7/6/2012

    " Jules Verne at his best "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Della | 5/22/2012

    " Jules Verne was clearly ahead of his time. A good read for science majors! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kody Chang | 9/13/2011

    " Nothing is more amusing for me to read about the scientific possibilities of getting to the center of the earth. Both the adventure and sci-fi parts of the book are priceless and the only reason I took off a star is because they didn't make it all the way! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna Mckenna | 7/27/2011

    " This book, I thought was going to be filled with adventure and wonder, but all that happened was left me bored and confused. I wish I liked this more since it is a classic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Josh | 5/21/2011

    " Highly decent. More a fictitious scientific account than a work of what we call modern science fiction, a great read that lights up the imagination. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stockwell | 5/16/2011

    " Read it a long time ago. Meaning to re-read it. "

    " read for my theater group when we were creating a play...
    i liked it so more i dont remember the plot very well, and really dont care for the book.
    Jules Verne is not my thing.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kanika | 5/8/2011

    " Wonderful story of adventure and mystery. A good read for those fond of adventure and fantasy. Look forward to watching the 2008 movie by the same title. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Morgan | 5/7/2011

    " Of a science fiction classic I had expected something a lot more entertaining an science mad. While I can see past the archaic language and slow pace, I cannot overlook the inconseqencies and the almost complete absence of a surprising plot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicholas | 5/6/2011

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karen | 5/1/2011

    " We listened to this book on CD. The kids and I enjoyed it. I liked the dry sense of humor throughout and the vocabulary used. We all learned some great words, including "prodigious" which they like to say now. It is a good adventure story. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
