Publisher Description

An Apple Books Classic edition.

Many credit Jules Verne with inventing the genre of science fiction. In this novel, the author of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 Days whisks us back in time and deep into the earth’s core. We follow eccentric scientist Otto Lidenbrock and his team on a dangerous exploration to an Icelandic volcano that he believes is actually a tunnel to the center of the earth. The deeper the group travels, the more treacherous the landscape becomes, littered with the bones of ancient animals and besieged by electrical storms hurling fireballs from above. But the biggest surprise of all may be waiting for them when they finally emerge…

Published in 1864, Journey to the Center of the Earth is riddled with scientific inaccuracies, all of which were based on the accepted theories of Verne’s day. That context only adds to the enjoyment of the story—and doesn’t detract from the amazing fact that Verne accurately predicted a staggering number of future inventions.
