Here's an exciting adventure fantasy, written in Jules Verne's first-person narrative style. Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a ripping Victorian yarn, one of the best of the genre. The sequence of amazing happenings are presented in a delightful, matter-of-fact way and surely reflect the attitude of the Great European explorers of the 19th century, who, in the midst of some appalling situation, would calmly sit down with a cup of tea and consider their plight. Nigel Lambert's abridgement remains true to the original and he tells the story grippingly.
