A Journey to the Centre of the Earth

by by Jules Verne

A great science fiction book about an old professor, his nephew, and their guide. As they go on a thrilling adventure to the center of our planet Earth, they have many adventures, including getting caught in an electric storm on the Central Sea filled with huge dinosaurs! And they run into a twelve-foot-tall cave man herding mastodons! There is a suspenseful ending as they are forced out of a living volcano! It's a good book! Read it!

I saw the movie and it was really good. From the way I've read about it the movie doesn't follow the book. I want to read the book...... I never knew there was one. Thanks for recommending it.

Is the book as good as the movie? I saw the movie and loved it, but don't know if I should read the book.

Like you, I loved the movie, but I haven't read the book. However, the book will probably be even better than the movie was; they usually are. If you don't know whether or not you'll like it though, it's better to get it from a library than to just buy it.
