An old piece of paper has tumbled from the book, a priceless parchment that will lead them on the expedition to end all expeditions. So begins a voyage thousands of feet under the sea, as the pair embark on a terrifying journey to find what lies at the centre of the earth.

"Verne's imagination has given us some of the greatest adventure stories of all time" ( Daily Mail)
" Journey to the Centre of the Earth is one of the most famous novels ever written. Verne has left us an extraordinary book, which has withstood the test of time better than some of the science described within it. It has brought delight to generations of readers, and will for many more. There is nothing so rare as the chance to take an impossible journey, and to believe it so powerfully that we wonder if we will make it out alive. That's magic. And that's Verne's gift." (Michael Crichton Daily Telegraph)
"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived" (Arthur C. Clarke)
"Fantasised a parallel world to ours under the earth's crust. This hypothesis was both popular and subscribed to, even by reputable scientists, in the 19th century. Verne's tale was flagrantly ripped off; (by Edgar Rice Burroughs, among others, with his "Pellucidar" series) but remains the best of its (scientifically) preposterous kind." (John Sutherland Guardian)
"Jules Vernes most spectacular visions of the future have remained classic science fantasies" ( Daily Mail)
