9780007372379: Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Collins Classics)

HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics.

‘From that hour we had no further occasion for the exercise of reason, or judgment, or skill, or contrivance. We were henceforth to be hurled along, the playthings of the fierce elements of the deep.’

In Verne’s science-fiction classic, Professor Lidenbrock chances upon an ancient manuscript and pledges to solve the mysterious coded message that lies within it. Eventually he deciphers the story – that of an Icelandic explorer who travels to the centre of the earth, finding his way there via a volcano.

Inspired by the manuscript, The Professor is determined to follow in the explorer’s footsteps and builds a crew of men which includes his nervous nephew Axel. Together they begin their journey to the centre of the earth, facing fearsome danger and adventure at every turn.

Review:

"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)
