    " Lidenbrock is WIN. Axel is a whiny little bitch. The plot is initially interesting, but loses its energy after a while and dissolves into a pseudo-scientific romp that quickly becomes underwhelming... An okay read, but not fantastical enough to be worth picking up again. "

    " Another book enjoyed in the school and lived the adventure with it for months "

    " Genius book for my childhood self. I didn't like the journey to the center of the earth the non wishbone edition. I Thoroughly enjoyed this little dog going to the center of the earth. It was enjoyable of wishbone the dog that goes on adventures. I also used to watch its shows since i was in 5th grade. Every night. It was nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandie | 1/21/2014

    " A wonderfully curious group of adventurers and their trip below the Earth. This book was so much fun to read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elley Murray | 1/16/2014

    " Starts out slow, but once you get about halfway and they're actually, y'know, journeying to the center of the earth (instead of talking about what they're packing and getting to Iceland and stuff) it gets pretty interesting. I listened to this on audiobook as narrated by Tim Curry, and he did a GREAT job narrating. :) "

    " There is nothing like a classic! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Thoughtstones | 1/2/2014

    " Feels dated now, seems so stilted but these may be a translation issue. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 12/18/2013

    " adventure, geology, death-defying. a fun read. unbelievable! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matteo | 12/16/2013

    " Meh. It was kind of boring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Natarsha | 10/30/2013

    " "its so worth a read, because the science and geological descriptions are fascinating, and for 1864 this book may have been "before its time". I didn't find it boring and really loved it." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aamen | 10/27/2013

    " Intruiging with fantasy and imagination enlaced with the plot. Sometimes too unreal, but good nevertheless. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Donaghe | 10/11/2013

    " This is an excellent adventure tale that has stood the test of time. Jules Vern was a man whose voice and writing was ahead of his time. The Journey to The Center Of The Earth is a great book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Curt | 8/15/2013

    " Read this in high school and enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 2/25/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis | 1/9/2013

    " 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. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Morgan Bruyneel | 7/8/2012

    " 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 Adán Rodríguez-arroyo | 4/9/2012

    " Easy and enjoyable read. The plot is quite good (considering it is science fiction from the 19th Century) and the vivid descriptions of their findings and ordeals through this adventure makes you wonder what to expect next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex Smith | 12/21/2011

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mia | 7/6/2011

    " I really couldn't understand most of it because of the language they were using. We had to read this book for French class, but thank goodness I got an A. "

  • 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.
