A pioneer in the genre of science fiction writing, Jules Verne possessed an uncanny ability to imagine—often with startling accuracy—the future possibilities of science. In this classic novel, first published in 1864, the author introduces readers to Otto Lidenbrock, a professor of geology who ventures into a fantastical world within an extinct Icelandic volcano. Verne's vivid imagination and masterful storytelling ability has made this book a popular choice among readers for more than 140 years. This version is believed to be the most faithful rendition into English of this classic currently in the public domain. The few notes of the translator are located near the point where they are referenced.
This is still a delight to read after 40 years. It is a remarkable adventure story without any of the silly Hollywood scenes, just three men on a really long walk. Read morePublished 1 day ago by Paul Rooney
