A Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a classic 1864 science-fiction novel written by Jules Verne. The main character is Professor Von Hardwigg who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the center of the Earth. Professor Von Hardwigg, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans encounter many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy.

The living organisms they meet reflect geological time; just as the rock layers become older and older the deeper they travel, the animals become more and more ancient the closer they come to the center of the Earth.

    " I believe that when this book was written, it would have been really imaginative. But I don't know that I would label it as a 'timeless' classic. I can specifically remember reading a passage that was describing the walls of the cave and kind of questioning if I wanted to go on after like 5 pages of description. But, I do love a lot of Jules Verne stories and am grateful that he inspired so many scifi writers that I love today. So this is why he gets 3 stars for this story. "

    " A short classic, filled with as much psychology as science fiction. This is the first Verne I've read in recent memory, and I'm sad I waited so long. You should read this, because it is worth the quick read and isn't disappointing at all. "

    " Well, this was funny and it's incredible how many informations had Verne about science. You could almost beleive it's everything true, and that this is a real travel :) Lovely characters as well, very different one from another but all nice on how they are. Couldn't remember Italy was involved in the travel too :P "

    " Scientifically perfect. Jules Verne told us where the dinosaurs went way back in 1864; The earth's core!! A pity noone believed him. The old Frenchmen will inevitably get his comeuppance when someone digs a hole too deep and we're all lost. "
