Publisher Description

"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived." — Arthur C. Clarke
An adventurous geology professor chances upon a manuscript in which a 16th-century explorer claims to have found a route to the earth's core. Professor Lidenbrock can't resist the opportunity to investigate, and with his nephew Axel, he sets off across Iceland in the company of Hans Bjelke, a native guide. The expedition descends into an extinct volcano toward a sunless sea, where they encounter a subterranean world of luminous rocks, antediluvian forests, and fantastic marine life — a living past that holds the secrets to the origins of human existence.
Originally published in 1864, Jules Verne's classic remains critically acclaimed for its style and imaginative visions. Verne wrote many fantasy stories that later proved remarkably prescient, and his distinctive combination of realism and romanticism exercised a lasting influence on writers as diverse as Mark Twain, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Jean-Paul Sartre. In addition to the excitement of an action novel, Journey to the Center of the Earth has the added appeal of a psychological quest, in which the sojourn itself is as significant as the ultimate destination.

Why should anyone hate it?

Why would anyone hate it? I haven't read it yet,but I'm sure it's good. I saw the movie, and I know the book and movie in any case, they will not be the same. I read all of the Twilights, and I'm still working on Breaking Dawn. When I first read Twilight, it was totally different than the movie. My point is, if you saw the movie and then read the book, you did it backwards. You should read the book before you see the movie to know what will happen and not get confused when you read something that wasn't in the movie.

Please take this into consideration. I hope you see that I have a point. I listen to this because I have a very brilliant teacher that says this all the time.

Thank you for reading my review.
