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 filmsSo some time in the mid 70s I read this book and discovered there were loads that I knew I would enjoySo fast forward 40 years and I ve probably watched the 50s movie than I ve read the book so it was time to read the book again And what a memorable read it was yes I could see James Mason as Professor Lindenbrook but the characters are regardless of the movie well rounded and uniue Considering it is not really a long book Jules managed to pack an amazing amount of story into such a small number of pages a story that is fast paced and well constructed And worth reading if you are into classic sci fi or even if you just enjoyed the film 1959 version is far superiorGiven it is now 5 years since I read this I had forgotten to write a review it should certainly be making its way to the top of my TBR again

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 characters making the journey They start in Iceland by climbing down into a dead volcanoAs they make their way the reluctant Axel is always begging his uncle to go back His Uncle Otto then berates the young man for his lack of courage and tenacity They repeat the same conversation in different forms The only other variation in their interactions is when Otto tells Axel why his science is wrong Otto gives long monologues on his scientific theories which would have been enough for Axel to kill him No court in the land would have prosecuted Hans doesn t speak and always sides with the professor The only time Otto is kind to his nephew is when Axel gets lostLong story short they make their way down down And discover many unscientific things like an ocean inside the mantle Also prehistoric sea creatures which battle it out around their makeshift raft on the interior ocean Somehow they get thrown back on the surface of the earth through an active volcano without getting hurt So it was a bit of a trudge for me and not very exciting except when Axel was lost in the dark

Gawd dim it bollocks ShazBot and shit snacksI 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 adventures but part of me knows deep down in my nethers that there s a warm gooey nostalgia that will always be missing This giant load of empty in my core if filled would likely have elevated this from a really good read to a cozy memory rewind of simpler happier times coughs bitterness from aching heartAlas my loving parents were unintentionally guilty of literary child neglect Thus while I really enjoyed all those afternoons watching Gilligan s Island I think my time would have been better utilized immersing myself in the classics of Wells Verne Doyle and Poe So yes it hurts and I m a little disappointed maybe even a skosh angry But wipes tearno sense crying weeping uncontrollably over spilled milk misspent reading years I must just remember to ensure that I don t make the same error with my own children So far so good Why anyone would shed tears over spilled bovine teat juice is beyond me PLOT SUMMARYOne of the most popular and beloved works within Verne s 54 volume Les Voyages Extraordinaires Journey to the Center of the Earth tells of the travels of Professor Lidenbrock an accomplished and incredibly impatient mineralogist and his uiet reserved nephew Axel While perusing an ancient manuscript Lidenbrock discovers a mysterious message encrypted in runic script After cracking the code with unexpected help from young Axel the professor discovers that the message describes how to locate a secret passage leading to uh take a wild guess The pair immediately scamper off to Iceland where with the help of hunterguide named Hans Bjelke they discover the hidden entrance and embark on a highly perilous but even highly enjoyable adventure THOUGHTSVerne was a consummate story teller who never wrote down to his audience or cut corners with his material One of the most enjoyable aspects for me about reading his stories is the scientific thoughtfulness that Verne poured into his novels True much of his science is badly dated and many of his theories including the central premise of this story have long since been disproved and relegated to nonsenseville However when written Verne was conscientious in his attempt to be as accurate as possible and employed a rigor to his plot elements and story details that few can match This diligence was the result of Verne s desire to use his novels to use his novels as teaching tools as well as entertainment This is a major bonus for the reader because Verne s devotion to authenticity actually enhances the sense of wonder by creating an air of plausibility that allows the suspension of disbelief to occur unconsciously and thus unnoticed What I m bushing around the beat about is that I really really enjoyed this I m couldn t give it the full 5 stars because I thought the initial portion of the novel ie the part before the entrance to the hidden passage took a bit too long to develop and the time spent in the most interesting segment of the journey ie the censored to avoid spoilerage was too fleeting Still there is genuine wonder here and excellently drawn characters who display remarkable depth for this kind of story Add to that an ending that is perfectly suited for the tale and you have a classic well done adventure yarn that should be read Oh a final gripe in the interest of full disclosure The ending s awesomeness was dampened a tad for me by the compass mystery which I thought was overindulged by the Jules Two days after finishing this I am still mildly annoyed by that snippet of the tale so I thought I would be remiss if I failed to mention it However minor nits and compass annoyance aside this was a great experience Definitely one I HIGHLY RECOMMEND40 starsPS I need to add a note to the doofus brained asshats who put together the 1871 English translation published by Griffith and Farran Dear Sirs You SUCK Worse this version happens to be the one that the geniuses at Easton Press decided in their unimaginable stupidity to use in their collection of science fiction classic The mind boggles This literary assassination abridged and largely rewrote the story even changing the main character s name from Professor Lidenbrock to Hardwigg Thank Odin and Cthulhu the unabridged audiobook I listened to was the original uality translation This actually gave me the ability to compare the to volumes There is no comparison If you are reading a version where the professor s name is Hardwiggtoss it in the trash and find an original translation As for the creators of the 1871 abomination I only wish you could find yourself on the receiving end of justice

I mean it's not funny or anything Perhaps I was struck by the fact that Robur le conuérant 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 apologies Me I wish to register a complaint about this novel which I purchased not 45 years ago in this very boutiueJohn Cleese Oh yeah?
