Publisher's Summary

Jules Verne's unforgettable adventure tale Journey to the Center of the Earth takes on new life in this special edition.

In the midst of examining an ancient Icelandic manuscript, professor and mineralogist Otto Liedenbrock and his nephew Axel make an astonishing discovery. A secret parchment lies hidden in the pages, and on it a puzzling message in code: Descend, bold traveler, into the crater of the jokul of Sneffels...

Thus begins a thrilling scientific quest that takes the professor and Axel from Hamburg to Iceland, down a volcanic crater, and deep into the center of the earth - where they uncover a breathtaking subterranean world unlike anything they ever imagined.

Great classic

The whole performance was great
Makes you wish the two movies had been truer to narrative.

Classic Book but no Modern Adventure

This book was great. I enjoyed it fully and Derek Perkins narrated it very well. My only regret was the quickness in its conclusion. For me at least, but it was worth listening to and I’m glad I did.

Great narration!

This book is a classic for sure. But the narrator put it over the top! He adds great emotion and depth to the main characters, makes the whole book hard to stop listening to

Brief review

An excellent classic science fiction adventure focusing on the journey traveled by the main character both through the mantle with his uncle, but also the journey through himself from elation to despair.

Fantastic performance and Fantastic story!

an interesting look into an earlier time. Good to see what story helped inspire the Crazed Professor trope!
