With an attempt to get into reading, my husband bought me the nook for Christmas. I decided that I wanted to start off by reading Journey to the Centre of the Earth. It took me several weeks to read this book in 30-60 minute sessions before bed, and I didn't read it every night. Today I noticed I had 30 pages left so I quickly finished the book. I was thrilled to actually read a classic novel.

The ebook itself had misspellings, but that was to be expected. It helps to have an understanding of science to make sense of certain aspects and to be prepared for an older version of English writing when attempting to read. I would recommend it to people who aren't put off by pessimism. One downfall that I found was the 9 lives the characters have. No matter how many times he almost died, he prevailed. You know the main character survived, or how else would he be writing this book in such a narrative manner? I prefer surprises and unexpected twists which were not found in this book.

TERRIBLE formatting errors make this unreadable

Nearly 30% of the words here are misspelled and require guessing what they might mean. It's so sad that such a great story has been so badly mishandled.

    Now What I Expected

    I really looked forward to reading this book because it is a classic I had heard about off and on. I was sadly disappointed in the monotony and drawn out literary style. I had expected some action and adventure, but wound up with a very dull story. From what I can gather, there may be other versions of this story, but it's hard to say which one is the one really written by Jules Verne. I bought another copy, and just reading the first page it is completely different, so perhaps that one will contain more excitement. I certainly wouldn't recommend this copy.
