VERNE, J.: Journey to the Centre of the Earth (Unabridged)

The story begins in Hamburg, 1863. The brilliant Professor Liedenbrock, inspired by an ancient, encoded manuscript, impetuously decides to take his reluctant nephew Axel on a seemingly insane mission: to travel down volcanic tunnels to the very centre of the earth. With Hans, their intrepid Icelandic guide, they descend deeper and deeper, encountering terrifying prehistoric animals and passing through unimaginably beautiful landscapes. Will Axel ever again see his beloved fiancée Graüben? All is revealed in the incredible dénouement of this thrilling adventure.
