    " extremely anticlimatic... I expected so much more. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua Rigsby | 1/22/2014

    " I expected much more action. Instead there was a lot of pseudo-scientific explanations and wandering around in the dark. Points to Mr. Verne for coming up with the eider-duck hunter, my pick for unique character occupation award. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trina | 1/10/2014

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Smith | 1/2/2014

    " It was fine, I guess I was just expecting more. It just seemed so childish compared to '20,000 Leagues under the Sea.' "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Marie | 1/1/2014

    " Okay for the entire library. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janette Wilcken | 1/1/2014

    " This is not an easy read, but it is worth the effort. I read the unabridged version to my fourth grade students and it was a great experience. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber | 12/29/2013

    " Interesting, but a little slow moving at some points. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abby | 12/11/2013

    " A great adventure. It made me feel a little suffocated though, thinking that I was under all the earth. The adventure is very vivid. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abdelmjid Seghir | 9/27/2013

    " This book is an astonishing journey that takes the reader from his/her living-room to the bottom of the earth. Verne combines science and fiction in a breathtakingly written piece of art. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vida | 9/14/2013

    " Not a bad book, and interesting. I liked it as much as I could for a classic of 19th century French literature. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyle Kent | 8/27/2013

    " A brilliantly-written story; really captivated me. It all seemed to end rather abruptly, though, like Verne got tired of writing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teri | 7/22/2013

    " I don't know why I'm such a sci fi fan, but I am. I loved this classic sci fi novel. It's the first Jules Verne book I've every read, and I am looking forward to trying another one very soon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 7/5/2013

    " listened to audio ... surprised at how much i enjoyed it ... great story "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jason McIntosh | 7/4/2013

    " fast paced. fun and exciting. no one writes a better adventure story than Verne. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fiona Robson | 1/15/2013

    " This was absolutely wonderful. Amazing story, wrapped up in lots of interesting science facts. Loved the whoe hollow earth thing going on and am loving every bit of Jules Verne's style of writing, too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Xdyj | 7/31/2012

    " Read long long ago, can't remember it very well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Croell | 7/2/2012

    " I found this book very enjoyable. The sheer knowledge Jules Verne possesses about science subjects is staggering. He describes every incident with a lengthy explanation of how it could be or could not be so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam Gilchrest | 5/15/2012

    " The professor is rather hilarious with his over bearing positivity. I thought this story was much longer. But I suppose to a ten year old, reading about that hike through the dark could seem rather elongated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becki | 4/12/2012

    " Loved it :) Awesome classic "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Demetra | 8/11/2011

    " They didn't even reach the centre... :( "

  • 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. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eva | 5/8/2011

    " 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

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

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

    " I enjoyed this story and look forward to reading more Jules Verne. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rich | 5/3/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 5/2/2011

    " Jules Verne's classic novel as an audiobook read by Tim Curry...AWESOME! "

  • 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pablo | 4/29/2011

    " A great story from the grandfather of Sci-fi "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Irish | 4/27/2011

    " 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 Limette | 4/27/2011

    " This book is from the 19th century? Well, I knew that but it was awesome! Really, awesome! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simona | 4/24/2011

    " Il mio preferito di Verne, insieme a "Giro del mondo in 80 giorni". "

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.
