Hardcover, Foundation Classics, 56 pages. Published January 1st 2009 by Skyview Books. My first experience of a science fiction novel. Although many of the scientific theories in this book are dated, such as the reason for a volcano erupting, the book is very educational
Hardcover, Foundation Classics, 56 pages. Although many of the scientific theories in this book are dated, such as the reason for a volcano erupting, the book is very educational. It was an eye opener for me, making science seem like an adventure or something to write creatively about. This book also introduced me to the classic, journey story-structure. Jul 17, 2010 Jodie Landes rated it it was amazing.

Pauline Francis has 20 years of experience as a secondary school teacher and trained librarian. She is the author of a number of retellings of well-known classics, including The Count of Monte Cristo, Frankenstein, and The War of the Worlds. I hope kindle in motion and Mr. Eng will breathe a new life to other classic books. Jules Verne's A Journey to the Center of the Earth is a classic science fiction tale from 1864. The story is related in a diary form by the young nephew, apprenticed to his famous scientist uncle.
Soon he was turning out imaginative stories such as Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863) and Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), which were immensely popular all over the world. He lived in his little house in Königstrasse, a dwelling built partly of brick and partly of stone, with a crenated gable-end, which looked on to one of those winding canals which intersect each other in the centre of the oldest part of Hamburg, which happily escaped the great fire in 1842. The old house leaned forward slightly, and bulged out towards the passers-by.

Journey to the Center of the Earth is an 1864 science fiction novel by Jules Verne. The story involves German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano.
Journey to the Centre of the Earth is an astonishing book for many reasons. What a book!’ he was saying
Journey to the Centre of the Earth is an astonishing book for many reasons. It certainly astonished me when I first read it at the age of ten – I couldn’t put it down, and I wouldn’t talk to anybody until I had finished it. It is one of the first pieces of science fiction ever written and, at the same time, a thoroughly exciting adventure story. What a book!’ he was saying. This exclamation reminded me that Professor Lidenbrock was also a bibliomaniac in his spare time; but a book had no value in his eyes unless it was unique or, at the very least, unreadable. Can’t you see what it is?

This book takes a little while to get going, but when it does, it becomes one .
This book takes a little while to get going, but when it does, it becomes one you cannot put down'. Indeed, most of us waited for the film to be introduced to Journey to the Centre of the Earth. In this novel, instead of going around the world, we are now going into it! Though most adventures and action books these days rely on shoot outs and car chases to keep the reader interested, Jules Verne manages to grip us using old fashioned mystery and suspense. If your parents are insisting, like mine, that you read classics, this is the place to start! Want to tell the world about a book you've read?
The world’s classics. Journey to the centre of the earth .
The world’s classics. JULES VERNE was born in Nantes in 1828, the eldest of five children in a prosperous family of French, Breton, and Scottish ancestry. It was followed by Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Seas, Around the World in Eighty Days, and sixty other novels, covering the whole world (and below and beyond). Verne himself travelled over three continents, before suddenly selling his yacht in 1886. The overwhelming majority of books by ‘Djools’ Verne are leaden or wooden, and possibly infringe the Trade Descriptions Act.

Directions to the Earth’s center were written on the piece of paper. Otto loved it. Now he was able to eat and he told Marta to get his suitcase ready and Axel’s as well. Axel had a million questions and doubts. The professor started mapping out their journey according to the translation. Iceland was completely made of volcanoes. He went on a journey with Axel and his social connections helped him a great deal. He was stubborn, persistent, enthusiastic, curious and intelligent.
