Summary

An eccentric geology professor acquires an old book and hidden within its pages finds an ancient parchment. On it is a coded message that reveals directions to a secret passageway that leads deep within the earth's interior. The professor immediately sets off on a daring journey to Iceland, where he and his companions enter into an extinct volcano and make their way to the center of the earth. They soon find a strange underground world where the laws of science are turned upside down. They discover huge caverns, luminous rocks, a subterranean sea, primitive forests, and fearsome prehistoric creatures that time had forgot. The travelers encounter one stirring adventure after another as they explore deep within the bowels of the earth.

Very enjoyable adventure from a different age.

I came to this for the narrator. Ed Sala has a great voice, and I had listened to him read two Cormac McCarthy novels. and thought he was fantastic with those, so looked what else he had narrated.
.
This was a fun listen - an all out adventure from a different age, and I would whole heartedly recommend it.

Verne doesn't disappoint

I have read a lot of Verne's novels. In this one again Verne's imagination and mastery of story telling find a synergy together. Excellent book. Narrator's voice seamlessly fits the genre and characters of the story.
