How can humans survive and prosper 1,500 feet below the earth’s surface? Jules Verne successfully weaves a dark yet magnificent story into this equally dark world. The book takes place in a revived and now prosperous coal mine. Amazingly, life in the mine has everything that one could desire, including a lake, fish, and attractive homes. Yet there lurks an evil presence: unexplainable, malicious, and life-threatening occurrences begin. And this evil force could destroy the underground world and everyone in it.

    " This was a nice casual read. The first Verne I've read. The characters weren't deep but the idea of the story is very interesting. "

    " This was very short, it took me less than 40 minutes to read it. The tale was interesting enough, but not one of Verne's best works. I wouldn't go out of your way to buy it, but if someone has it laying around you might as well give it a shot. "
