Book Excerpt: 
. . .This is my decision," replied Professor Liedenbrock, putting on one of his grandest airs. "Neither you nor anybody else knows with any certainty what is going on in the interior of this globe, since not the twelve thousandth part of its radius is known; science is eminently perfectible; and every new theory is soon routed by a newer. Was it not always believed until Fourier that the temperature of the interplanetary spaces decreased perpetually? and is it not known at the present time that the greatest cold of the ethereal regions is never lower than 40 degrees below zero Fahr.? Why should it not be the same with the internal heat? Why should it not, at a certain depth, attain an impassable limit, instead of rising to such a point as to fuse the most infusible metals?"

As my uncle was now taking his stand upon hypotheses, of course, there was nothing to be said.

This was a DNF for me when I was a teenager. I loved the old movie, but I just couldn't get into the book.

Then, I selected this for my Goodreads book-club a couple of years ago thinking that now that I have grown up and read more - and because Jules Verne is one of the founding fathers of sci-fi - I

So my first experience of this story was the 1959 film (a good year ha ha), that I saw probably in my early teens, normally around the Christmas time. I have a penchant for 1950s sci-fi "B" movies and this film was certainly part of my drive to read the books that were made into the wonderful films.

A bit too pedantic for me, Journey to the Center of the Earth, is full of half-baked scientific notions and unproven theories put forth in a dry, scholarly manner, which does nothing for the story at hand. Professor Lidenbrock and his nephew Axel and their stalwart and phlegmatic guide Hans are the

When I was young I read this book and most of his others too. I used to wonder about the Hollow Earth and often compared it to Middle Earth and Midgaurd. Alice down the rabbit hole. Shamballa and Hades. Like At The Earths Core this book opens the imagination to an inner realm. I have researched this

Why does Jules Verne often remind me of Monty Python? I mean, it's not funny or anything. Perhaps I was struck by the fact that Robur-le-conquérant doesn't just feature a flying machine called the Albatross, but also gives you a precise figure for the speed of a swallow. Anyway, with further apologi

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.

I've tried to make The Journey to the Centre of the earth myself people, and let me tell you, it is fraught with danger! It should be a warning to you that I'm writing this from the bed of a Burns unit by typing with two chargrilled finger stumps, because the centre of the earth is not some wonderfu

"As long as the heart beats, as long as your body and soul keep together, I cannot admit that any creature endowed with a will has need to despair of life"

I thought this book was brilliant and superbly well written by Venre as I will summarise below.

It follows 3 main characters:-

Gawd dim it, bollocks, ShazBot and shit snacks...I am so, SO bummed that I didn’t experience Jules Verne’s novels for the first time as a young man, rather than as an aging manolescent. Reading them now, as a 41 year old, I still find myself carried away in the rollickingness of his well crafted adv
