Journey to the Center of the Earth (Extraordinary Voyages, #3)

By Jules Verne

Rating: 3 stars

This was a fairly rip-roaring yarn of underground explorers finding vast lakes, giant apes and sea-dwelling dinosaurs all with a very Victorian flourish. The science has dated badly, but the sense of adventure is fresh. Although some of the characters can be annoying at times, it’s a book of ideas and adventure, not a character study.
