I read Journey to the Centre of the Earth for the Jolly Good Reading Society book club on Goodreads and thoroughly enjoyed it! I have the three novel edition of Jules Verne’s work and will definitely be reading the other two novels at some point in the near future.
I found the writing style in this novel to be accessible but descriptive enough to suck me into the characters’ adventure. Some of the scientific ideas are a little outdated but I went into the book expecting that so that didn’t bother me.
I loved the Icelandic setting and the characterisation of the three protagonists.
Overall, I would highly recommend this novel and can’t wait to read more Jules Verne.
5 out of 5 stars!
