How Did You Like It?
Overall, I enjoyed this book by Jules Verne for a variety of reasons. Though I usually tend to avoid sci-fi and fantasy novels, this was quite imaginative and really made you think about their options and situation. Though the beginning was rather slow and monotonously flowing, it picked up and got really creative. This novel also was very factual and any reader could easily see how informed Verne was. At some parts, the plot became too far-fetched to believe, at others, too intriguing to stop. As I said, recollecting on the novel, it was interesting, but at parts I literally fell asleep. If fantasy lands excite or entertain you, testing scientific theories and laws is suspenseful, then “Journey to the Centre of the Earth” by Jules Verne will be perfect for you.
