Description

Journey to the Center of the Earth

An eccentric geology professor acquires an old book and hidden within its pages finds an ancient parchment. On it is a coded message that reveals directions to a secret passageway that leads deep within the earth’s interior. The professor immediately sets off on a daring journey to Iceland where he and his companions enter into an extinct volcano and make their way to the center of the earth. They soon find a strange underground world where the laws of science are turned upside down. They discover huge caverns, luminous rocks, a subterranean sea, primitive forests, and fearsome prehistoric creatures that time had forgot. The travelers encounter one stirring adventure after another as they explore deep within the bowels of the earth.

Jules Verne (1828-1905) was a French novelist who pioneered the genre of science fiction. He maintained a large library and always kept up on scientific and technological progress. A
true visionary with an extraordinary talent for writing adventure stories, his writings incorporated the latest scientific knowledge of his day and envisioned technological developments that were years ahead of their time. Verne wrote about undersea, air, and space travel long before any navigable or practical craft were invented. Verne, along with H.G. Wells, is considered the “Father of Science Fiction.” Verne wrote over 50 novels and numerous short stories. Some of his most successful novels appeared as a series collectively known as Extraordinary Voyages. This series included such notable works as Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (1869), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1872). These timeless classics hold the same fascination today as they did when they were first written. Verne is one of the two most translated authors of all time. Due to the popularity of his novels,
many of them have been made into feature length films.
