Thank You Amazon Classics for re-printing this book.
I relived my childhood days while reading this book. This was my first novel, I read it in 5th grade.
Jules Verne was the author who's work gave me the wings of imagination, possibilities, courage. And this book needs no review at all. I'm sure, every literate person have read his work atleast once in their lifetime.
Sounds impossible but still an interesting read for those who loves science fiction adventures. Keeps one captivated throughout the story. It's like seeing it while reading it. Great imagination and description of everything by the author. Would love to read some of the other books by Jules Verne as well.
To even conceptualize something like this during the time Jules Verne wrote this book was something to be really proud of and one must acknowledge such imagination and creativity. However, Jules Verne didn't leave much to imagination when it came to detailing. It could have been something totally out of the park with the kind of imagination the author has, but the author kept that imagination to the concept and when it came to detailing, he has done justice to reality. One may not get swayed away with things which seem unrealistic or not pragmatic in approach or actions. That care is taken by the author which makes this a gem of a book.
Great book! I don't read books that often and this is probably my first one since my last book in 2017. And I'm glad I broke the hiatus with this book because it was a pleasure to read. The story is really intriguing and will get you hooked.
amazing. this book is more than 150 years old. though it is fiction author wrote very imaginatively. the translator of this book also have a good command on language, there are lot of terminology which relates to geology, so you need a dictionary with you when you read. the movie journey into center of the earth is based on this book, everything said in this book is made into that movie.
It was a pure joy to read this wonderful story of adventure, I felt entertained the whole way through. I loved the characters, the writing style and the plot so incredibly much. I can't even explain why, I just had a good feeling every time I picked up this book.
