    I used this as a read aloud with my younger children. (My older always sneak in and listen as well though.) My 10 year old really enjoyed this book. It was fun as a graphic novel as I tried to make voices for the characters. The best part was when we compared the characters Axel and Hans.

    This is one of those books that I've been meaning to read since, well, since I heard of it. Jules Verne is one of those authors that you hear a lot about, you either love him or you hate him. He was considered to be a very forward thinking man back in his day. I have read Around The World In Eighty Days, which I enjoyed but I never read his more science fictiony (is that even a word?) works.

Jules Verne is one of those authors that you hear a lot about, you either love him or you hate him. He was considered to be a very forward thinking man back in his day. I have read Around The World In Eighty Days, which I enjoyed but I never read his more science fictiony (is that even a word?) works. When I was deciding on which authors that I would read for Celebrate the Author Challenge, I chose Jules Verne. Professor Von Hardwigg finds a rare manuscript on a Icelandic saga, in that book he find a note that is written in a cryptic way. He gets his nephew Harry to decipher the message. From that note he comes to find out about a way to travel to the centre of the earth through a volcano in Iceland. The Professor, along with his reluctant nephew travel to Iceland, there they find a willing guide to take them to the volcano crater. And that's when the adventure starts. The way the book is written, like a diary or travel log style was easy enough to follow, but I found certain parts harder to read than other. Some were dry and boring, and others exciting and moving. I didn't care much for the Professor, I found him mean. Harry on the other hand was either a pessimist or a optimist his moods would change all the time, and he also had the knack for getting lost. My favorite part of the book was the way the author described the surroundings. I felt like I was there along with them. He made it so believable, I found that fascinating. I just devoured the book. My least part of the book: the ending. I didn't care for it! Along the way the story kept on building and I found the ending anti-climatic.

    Boy, did the narrator irritate me. He was so whiny and scared ALL the time. His voice could have been that of a classic Victorian heroine, always panicking and swooning. The science seemed to be a mix of then-current knowledge about fossils and speculation about geology and meterology. I don't know how it inspired generations of adventureres - maybe they thought they'd be braver than Henry?

    I'm very interested in Jules Verne but don't really think I could manage the original text. So reading this graphic novel was a pleasure for me. Making use of some of the original text, keeping true to the original and clear art work added up to an excellent way of passing an hour or 2.

    Much more palatable in graphic form, I can't bring myself to read the classics in full form.

    My second favourite of his novels, it is simply enchanting. An easy read with superb detail and imagery.

    A group of men follow some ancient instructions to the centre of the Earth. I thought this was a really strong story with plenty of realistic interaction between the believable characters.

    Honestly this book was very hard to get through. I really enjoyed Around the World in 80 days, but this one became quite grueling and rather stupid. One of those books that won't be read again.
