I grew up on the James Mason movie, "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1959), so it was quite a shocker to read the book. You could imagine to my dismay the absents of quite a few characters and the center of the story is Germany not Scotland.

Now for avid readers you could care less about old movies, I can truthfully say that this is one of Jules Verne's best stories and well told.

What you will find more interesting and fun about this tale is the characters and their interaction. One of my favorite parts is when Harry who did not want to go to the center of the earth with his uncle, Professor Hardwigg; he turned to his affianced, Gretchen, and was planning on her to stop him. Her answer is shockingly disappointing to him.

"While there is life there is hope. I beg to assert, Henry, that as long as man's heart beats, as long as man's flesh quivers, I do not allow that being gifted with thought and will can allow himself to despair"

Be prepared as the bulk of the book is really a geological journey back through time and forward again painfully spelled out by Harry whom is the first person narrator.

The Kindle version does not have actual picture of the runes in chapter 1. Moreover, a tad off on pronunciations. Other than that, it is more than worth obtaining along with a hard copy for your library.

Das "Journey to the Centre of the Earth" ein häufig gelesener Klassiker ist hat seinen Grund. Das Buch lässt sich auch in Englisch noch sehr gut und verständlich lesen. Die Geschichte ist sehr grosse Abschnitte entlang sehr spannend und interessant, häufig fragt man sich was die Abendteurer hinter der nächsten Biegung finden.
Wer die Geschichte vielleicht auf Film und Fernsehen zu kennen glaubt wird sehr überrascht sein wenn er das Buch einmal selber gelesen hat.
Trotz des zum teil schnörkellosen Erzählstils kann die Geschichte sehr gut fesseln. Jules Verne hat es verstanden einen fiktiven Roman mit gerade soviel Wissenschaftlichen Erkenntnissen (der damaligen Zeit) zu unterlegen dass die Geschichte fast schon Glaubwuerdig wird, aber doch nicht von zuviel besserwisserischen Fakten zugestaubt wird.
Fuer mich ist das Buch ein muss fuer jeden, der sich vorgenommen hat sein Literarisches Grundwissen ein wenig zu erweitern.

This is a wonderful book. Taking into consideration the timeat which it was written, it was (and still is) a very fascinating andintriguing book. It kept MY attention, that's for sure. Sure, maybe it IS outdated but you have to keep your mind open and remember WHEN it was written. About the only thing I didn't like was the super long descriptions of Iceland. Got a little snoozy but other than that, very excellently written. Good for anyone of any age!

Dem Autor ist es auf packende Art und Weise gelungen geologische Fakten und wissenschaftliche Theorien mit blühender Fantasie zu vermischen. Der Leser wird mehrmals im Verlauf des Buches dazu gezwungen an sich und seinem Verständnis von Wissenschaft zu zweifeln. Ständig stellt man sich die Frage:"Kann das wirklich sein?" Das Buch ist nicht nur ein reiner Lesespaß, sondern für jeden Nachwuchsentdecker ein Anstoss an seiner Fantasie und Vorstellungskraft festzuhalten, denn wer weiss schon wieviel davon wahr oder erfunden ist. Jules Verne unterlegt eine Fantasiegeschichte mit viel wissenschaftlicher Anschaulichkeit und Verständnis. Dennoch geht nicht der kleinste Funken Spannung verloren.

Forget for the moment the established theory that the center of the Earth is a ball of fire, and enjoy this wonderful adventure written over a century ago that offered an alternative view. I'm a big fan of Journey To The Center Of The Earth. I've read the book and seen the movie countless times, and still never tire of it. Alien Voices attempts to tell the story in a way that would suit a modern audience, while still retaining the spirit of the original. Long, descriptive passages can be circumvented in the aural medium with a few lines of dialogue or sound effects, and tighten the pace. Projecting the fascination of the unknown and portraying science in a highly positive way is indeed very Verne, and in this Alien Voices get it exactly right. Leonard Nimoy is an unsurpassably brilliant actor who brings the crotchety and irascible Professor Lidenbrock to life with panache. This is one man whose voice is perfectly suited to audio. John DeLancie unfortunately overdoes his part way too much for my liking, being too soppy and emotive as Axel. Still, that's the way Axel was written, so I can't say he got it wrong! The acting all round is competant, though it's mostly Nimoy and DeLancie who we hear, and they are seasoned professionals in film and t.v anyway. Put this on the headphones, and the sound quality becomes most evident, and you'll soon be taken away into the past. A worthy interpretation, for the most part, certainly to be congratulated for being far truer to the novel than the nonetheless highly enjoyable 1959 film.
