Summary:

Geologist Otto Lidenbrock is perusing an ancient Icelandic manuscript when he discovers a mysterious encrypted note. The message reveals the account of a sixteenth-century explorer who claims to have found a passageway to the center of the earth.In his quest to penetrate the planet's primordial secrets, the impetuous professor, together with his quaking nephew, Axel, and their devoted guide, Hans, sets off immediately for Iceland. Descending through the belly of a volcano into the bowels of the Earth, they discover an astonishing subterranean world of prehistoric proportions.A classic of science fiction that helped give birth to the genre, this imaginative speculation on the earth's nature is both a rousing adventure story and an apt portrait of the psychology of the questing scientist.

    My boys felt it was to long a drawn out. In fact they didn't even finish listening to the book. It would have been nice to spend more time on the adventure not the professor.

    The narrator does not sound like a robot, a pleasant voice as if my teacher were reading me a story. That someone took the time to read this book than to just do it easy and with a robotic device.
