Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The intrepid Professor Lindenbrock embarks upon the strangest expedition of the nineteenth century: a journey down an extinct Icelandic volcano to the Earths very core. In his quest to penetrate the planets primordial secrets, the geologist—together with his quaking nephew Axel and their devoted guide, Hans—discovers an astonishing subterranean menagerie of prehistoric proportions. Vernes imaginative tale is at once the ultimate science fiction adventure and a reflection on the perfectibility of human understanding and the psychology of the questor. As David Brin notes in his Introduction, though Verne never knew the term “science fiction,” Journey to the Centre of the Earth is “inarguably one of the wellsprings from which it all began.”

About the Author

David Brin is the Hugo Award-winning author of fifteen bestselling novels and collections, including Earth, The Postman, and the Uplift saga. His nonfiction book, The Transparent Society, won the American Library Associations Obeler Freedom of Speech Award.
