    Tough book-great story

    I first sat down with this book at the beginning of last summer simply because I had nothing to read and I quickly discovered this book was not meant for people with a small vocabulary. After finally finishing the book, I still do not think I know what all the words mean and frequently I had to stop and sound out the words, something I have not done in a long time. At some places it is also a very slow read, partly because of the difficult vocabulary, but also because it is extremly descriptive sometimes taking up one whole page (and the text is not very big) to describe the scene. Some of the paragraphs describe one subject so thoroughly that I constantly got the "I get the message, let's move on" feeling. At these places I got very bored with the book, especially in the first 35 pages. Once you start getting into it, though, the story becomes fantastic and engaging. I am a very big fan of adventure, and the book definatly satisfied my appetite. Because the book is super descriptive, what it is describing is amazing. I could really imagine the height of the cavern, the vast enormity of the sea and the power of the sea monsters. I could always feel the excitement or the rage that Professor Liedenbrock displayed upon his discoveries. And I always felt like I was being but into the shoes of Axel. Jules Verne did a very good job explaining his thoughts. Towards the end of the book, however, the book began to be not as engaging. I began to feel as though the author was rushing the ending which, by the way, was extremley short. It could have been because of their situation, but the book suddenly stopped describing the happenings of the journey. And at the very end I could tell that things were being cut short. Before the ending, Axel was narrating the things that happened in the story. In the ending, it seemed like he was summarizing the narration. But overall the book is really pretty good. It just has a really slow, boring beginning and a rushed, bad ending. The plotline is a very good one, and the order of things and how they were done in the story made sense to me. Whenever Axel and Professor Liedenbrock had a scientific conversation, they explained their hypotheses clearly and it had me wondering if a journey to the center of the Earth could really happen. The three main characters (Axel, Professor Liedenbrock, and Hans, their guide) in the story were so different in thier personalities that it was almost funny when they talked to each other, expressed their opinions and argued. So if you are one who has a diverse vocabulary and a love of lengthy descriptions, this is the book for you. But if you need constant action in a book, or you are just picking it up to pass the time, I would not recomend it.

    A wonderful book filled with adventure. And a nice version too with no typos that I could see. The other negative comments must be for a different version, not this one.

    Boring!

    This book is not a 'fast read!' It is very descriptive. Perhaps too descriptive. This book is not for teenagers and is a book I will never read again!
