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.

About the narration.

Style of storytelling is okay and all but when the Narrator does voice acting or character play, holy fuck it sounds like he's mocking the characters not trying to act, it irritates me on so many levels.

Great classic

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

The Center

Upon this, my first reading, I was captivated by the scientific research and use of the vocabulary . Realistic, engaging and enjoyable.

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.

A must read sci-fi classic

It just keeps better as the book goes on, almost makes you believe that one could survive the center of the earth!

Fantastic performance and Fantastic story!

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

Classic, But Slow

I know it's a classic, but I found it really slow. The voice actor also had a very relaxing voice so this turned into my nap book.

Great narration, tedious story.

I’m sure this book appealed to readers in 1864 when it was published. Unfortunately, I found myself waiting for the story to grab me and when it didn’t, I found myself hoping the volcano would erupt and kill all the characters.

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.
