“Our constant and successive descents had taken us quite thirty leagues into the interior of the earth, that is to say, that there were above us thirty leagues, nearly a hundred miles, of rocks, and oceans, and continents, and towns, to say nothing of living inhabitants.”

Though familiar with the story already, I listened to Tim Curry narrate this classic adventure and had so much fun listening!! For a book first published in 1864, it‘s still manages to inspire a great sense of wonder about the world. Maybe you can‘t cut through from beneath one volcano in Iceland to one in Italy in real life, but his idea of a hidden world has inspired so many other great novels! And the performance is second to none! Such fun!!

When I was a child, I read the Great Illustrated Classics (remember those?) version of “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” and I‘ve wanted to go to Iceland ever since!

#funfriYAY

DrexEdit My family had a ton of Classics Illustrated comics when I was young. I loved them. I just posted about them the other day, because I am pretty sure for most “classic“ literature I only have the comic version of in my head! 😄 Have I “read“ the Count of Monte Cristo? Um. . . Yes!? 😂 I have not read Journey to the Center of the Earth, comic book or otherwise, but Iceland would be a very cool place to visit! 10mo
HappilyEverKrafter @DrexEdit We had this box of about a dozen little paperback illustrated classics! I‘m the same way, I have “read” several of the classics … in this version! 😂 10mo

This is my first book , read it back in sixth grade . Verne was so ahead of his time, the book holds so much adventure in it . It grabs the attention of readers in a unique way in each and every chapter..

I had much success yesterday op shopping! I wasn‘t going to go to this op shop but the yellow, dot dress in the window caught my eye and it fit! Afterwards I took myself out to the sushi train for lunch. They didn‘t have my sparkling sake but they did have green tea ice cream. No strawberries though. It‘s always a bit of a hit or miss. The food is always divine. The art works at the bottom are for #Litsylove and #JustBecause correspondence. $41

The characters are a bit one-dimensional, but the fast-paced story makes up for it. This is the book that inspired me as a youngster to learn more about Iceland (and eventually get into Icelandic mysteries once they became available).

Was feeling restless and unable to focus, so decided to pull a re-read off the pile. I‘ve had this Puffin Classics edition for about 25 years. Probably received it as a gift, after putting it on my Christmas list thanks to the Journey to the Centre of the Earth episode of Wishbone 🐶🐾🕵🏻📚

#30 #Journeys #LitstBitsy

I listened to this audio today. I read it before in 2015 and I loved it once again as it was full of excitement and adventure, with slight hints of humor and slivers of suspense. Verne is so creative and imaginative, yet so descriptive, that you feel as if you are there with the trio as they make their journey. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves adventure.

Cuilin #30 journeys 👍 I‘ve only ever read Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne, I‘ve always wanted to read this and 20,000 leagues under the sea. Thanks for the reminder. Stacked. 2y
EadieB @Cuilin You‘re welcome! It is a good one! 2y

I read Journey to the Center of the Earth as my #doublespin pick for March and also my classic adventure in my reading the classics challenge. I throughly enjoyed the adventure of the story maybe even better than Around the World in 80 days. If you are looking for a shorter classic to meet a challenge goal and like an adventure this would be an excellent choice.

TheAromaofBooks Even though I have read several other of Vernes's books - and enjoyed them - I've never gotten to this one! Definitely need to pick it up. Great review!! 3y

A great classic of the Extraordinary Voyages adventure novels. Classic sci-fi from one of the fathers of the genre. If you love geology, geography, paleontology, or just adventurous travel, you will find joy in this book.

Visiting Snæfullsjökull next week, so I started rereading the paperback I've had since 1965. Went to look something up, and found that this was an inferior and abridged translation (left), in which the characters names had been changed, scenes left out, and other atrocities of literature. At long last reading the better translation (right) and enjoying it, which is as good as I'm going to get since my French isn't up to reading the original.

I‘m in western Iceland and my view is Snaesfellsjokull, where you can jump in to the center of the earth, at least according to Jules Verne.
Started reading it today!

This was definitely one of the more adventurous books I‘ve read. This has to be my second favorite Jules Verne novel, next to Around The World In Eighty Days. It had me wanting to read more and more. I couldn‘t put it down, I just had to keep reading it. I had this urge to finish reading it. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #AJourneyToTheCenterOfTheEarth #JulesVerne #book #books #epicreads @EpicReads #bookend #bookends #Classics #ScienceFiction #Fiction #Adventure 💗💗
