Présentation de l'éditeur

Journey to the Centre of the Earth has been consistently praised for its style and its vision of the world. It explores the prehistory of the globe, but can also be read as a psychological quest, for the journey itself is as important as arrival or discovery. Professor Lidenbrock and his nephew Axel travel across Iceland, and then down through an extinct crater towards a sunless sea where they enter a living past and are confronted with the origins of man. A classic of nineteenth-century French literature, the novel's distinctive combination of realism and Romanticism has marked figures as diverse as Sartre and Tournier, Mark Twain and Conan Doyle. This new translation of the complete text is faithful to the lyricism, verve, and humour of the original. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic for good reasons 3 mai 2014

Of all authors, Jules Verne has probably been the most unfortunate in the translations of his works. His books are not children's or just young people's stories, but were altered in translation to suit that audience. The result was often the re-arrangement of characters or events within the story, entire chapters were eliminated and other, terrible alterations were made to fit a group of readers and to ignore the author's intention.
This book, a true translation is Verne at his best. The story is exciting, the characters well developed. It is a hundred plus years overdue, but the story is as wonderful now as when it was written. A great addition in any library.

I love Verne and this translation was the greatest I've read. The writing is very descriptive of the scenery as all of his work is. The story is an adventure of exploration that you'll enjoy reading. The explanatory notes in the back should be read the second time you read through the book as you may come across spoilers the first time.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Entertaining, if a bit dated 20 mai 2015

But that's alright. There are a few occasions where the storytelling suffers due to prolonged focus on scientific minutiae. Some specifics are to be expected (and even necessary), but the level of detailing in some passages was distracting, to say the least. It never feels like a treatise on geology, but it might cause some readers to put the book down for a while.

Otherwise, this tale has many elements of a great story; a fantastic premise, understandable characters, an incredible journey, moments of tension and danger, all while remaining largely within the realm of possibility. Largely. ;-)

Any seeking to argue against the work must contend with arguments levied by the author himself. "‘No more; that is sufficient. When science has uttered her voice, let babblers hold their peace.’"

The story line varies slightly from the old James Mason movie (an old favorite of mine) that I was raised with but after fifty some odd years I figured it was about time that I read it. As usual the book is better in some ways. I guess a reader's imagination is much better than Hollywood's special effects. I highly recommend it even if you are not familiar with the movie.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Real Classic 20 septembre 2014
Par Odell J Hubbard - Publié sur Amazon.com

While its scientific information is obviously outdated, it is a well written and enjoyable story with a surprising sense of humor. Often retold and envisioned in numerous movie versions, it truly is a classic worth enjoying in its original form.
