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.

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.

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.

Best iteration I've heard

Whilst the story is a classic, there have been multiple dramatized versions of Journey to the Center of the Earth over the years and this by far in my opinion has been, in my opinion, my favourite version to listen to.
