Journey to the Centre of the Earth

Condition: New

Books From Sharon


What lies at the centre of our Earth? When Axel helps his uncle Professor Lidenbrock to decipher a cryptic ancient manuscript that purports to chart this very journey, he is thrust upon an epic adventure. They set off from Germany to Iceland, where, with their guide Hans, they descend a volcano, braced for unimaginable phenomena. Nothing, however, could prepare them for the world beneath. With rapid pace and remarkable detail, Journey to the Centre of the Earth reflects the increasingly enlightened world of the nineteenth century, which resonates strongly with today’s ever-growing scientific worldview.

ABOUT THE COVER A maze of phantasmagorical tunnels forms the basis of this psychedelic cover, indicative of the authors ambition to depict a fantastical subterranean world.
