If I said to you “Let’s go spelunking at the weekend”, would you have the faintest idea what I was talking about? Well if you had read the final pages in this “Illustrated Classic” version from 1957 of Jules Verne’s A Journey to the Centre of the Earth, then you would know that I was suggesting a trip to go exploring or climbing inside caves, otherwise known as “potholing”. “Spelunking” derives from “speleologists”, or cave scientists, who venture far underground to disco [...]
This book is full of science fail.I tried and tried to suspend my disbelief and failed time and time again. The core of the earth is not hollow. It is full of liquid rock. It is hot. You can’t walk to it. There are no magic tunnels to the centre of the earth, where prehistoric sharks fight prehistoric dinosaurs. The main character is engaged to his cousin. I’m pretty sure they’d figured out about flipper children by the 1800s. The main character? Not likable. Some people, might even call h [...]
Fun Read!As much fun as I remembered when I read this edition as a kid. Read it, read the novel, see the original movie.
This book is called A Journey To The Center Of The Earth by Jules Verne (for some reason on my book cover it also says retold by Pauline Francis, maybe it's a shorter version or something). It's scientific fiction though I would kind of make it fiction because how the people travelled in the story is more like a miracle. It's really easy to read and it kind of makes you wanna do the same. The characters are 2 men and 1 boy.So, there was a boy called Axel and he lived with his uncle Lindbrock. Hi [...]
The book was very dry and boring for the beginning and it just did not attract to me, A journey to the center of the earth by Jules Verne was written extremely well with very mature scientific research done to support this book. The book is very old and the way it is written is for that time so since I am not that old I dont understand some of the dialect used in the book. Near the middle of the book it started to get a little less dry and started to be more like the movie adding action and peop [...]
The intrepid Professor Liedenbrock embarks upon the strangest expedition of the nineteenth century: a journey down an extinct Icelandic volcano to the Earth's very core. In his quest to penetrate the planet's primordial secrets, the geologist--together with his quaking nephew Axel and their devoted guide, Hans--discovers an astonishing subterranean menagerie of prehistoric proportions. Verne's imaginative tale is at once the ultimate science fiction adventure and a reflection on the perfectibili [...]
I had to read this book for school and while I enjoyed the story line, the beginning was really slow for me and towards the end I started to really get into the book. While this story was written in an old sort of writing I thoroughly enjoyed the way that if was formatted as though it was a journal. That being said, it didn't keep my attention that well and I sometimes had to force myself to keep reading. Once you got to the second half though, it was much more bearable.
An expedition to the Earth's core is prompted by a coded message. Professor Lidenbrock, his nephew, and their Swiss guide encounter a prehistoric world below the surface. This is a science fiction classic.
Took me awhile to read this onebut I really liked it.
Read it for school, not this edition though. It's enjoyable and a quick read as well :) yay for Laila attempting to read more classics
This book is okay, although it takes a good long while to climax. A little on the boring side, but there are some interesting parts
the book is good
Classic, early science-fiction; slow, but most books from this time period aren't as fast-paced as we're used to reading.
So good I've read it ThriceThe first read was magnetic.The second engrossed me .The third was fascinating.I probably read it again or share it.
