Journey to the Center of the Earth

By Jules Verne

It all starts when Axel’s uncle, Professor Lindenbrock, gets a book from the library. When they open the book an old piece of parchment falls out. They translate it and discover what it says. It says, “Descend into the crater of Sneffels Yokul, over which the shadow of Scataris falls before the calends of July, bold traveler, and you will reach the center of the earth. I have done this. Arne Saknussemm.” The following day, Axel and his uncle set off on a journey to the center of the earth, but will they make it?

Jules Verne does a great job of describing each scene. It makes you feel like you’re actually traveling with Axel and Professor Lindenbrock, not reading the book. He also does a great job of slowing down time to describe everything. If you have not read Journey to the Center of the Earth, I suggest reading it now.
