It's science fiction from the masters of the genre! Special 3-D cover design PLUS each book comes with 3D glasses!

From the grandpère of science fiction- a perilous and astonishing adventure into the earth’s core that details encounters with natural hazards, forty foot mushrooms and prehistoric beasts.

After decoding a scrap of paper in runic script, the intrepid Professor Lidenbrock and his nervous nephew Axel travel across Iceland to find the secret passage to the centre of the earth. Enlisting the silent Hans as a guide, the trio encounter a perilous and astonishing subterranean world of natural hazards, curious sights, prehistoric beasts and sea monsters.

Reviews

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
