9780451532152: Journey to the Center of the Earth

From the discovery of a strange parchment in an old bookseller’s shop to the fantastic descent through a dormant volcano into a subterranean world of danger and beauty, A Journey to the Center of the Earth is as wonderfully entertaining today as when it was first published.
 
One of Jules Verne’s finest novels, its unique combination of “hard” science and vivid imagination helped establish this brilliant Frenchman as the father of modern science fiction. A high-tension odyssey, it depicts three men who venture into an unknown, fearsome underworld to discover what lies at the mysterious center of the earth—while risking their chances of ever returning to the surface alive.
 
With an Introduction by Bear Grylls
and an Afterword by Leonard Nimoy

From the Publisher:

In mid-nineteenth century Europe, science fact and science fiction occupied twin thrones of the human imagination in a brave new world on the frontiers of discovery. The particular gift of Jules Verne, author of Around The World in 80 Days and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea as well as Journey to the Center of the Earth, was to ground his fiction in carefully researched science, to endow fantastic adventure with compelling realism.

Often called the father of science fiction, Verne forecast with eerie accuracy many scientific achievements of the twentieth century. Exploration of outer space, submarines, helpicopters, air conditioning, guided missiles and motion pictures all appear in his novels.

A multitalented actor, Shadoe Stevens reads this great journey. He starred in the highly rated comedy series, Dave's World on CBS. In addition to creating, writing and starring in commercials, he also hosted the world's biggest radio show, "American Top 40."

From the Back Cover:

An adventurous geology professor chances upon a manuscript in which a sixteenth-century explorer claims to have found a route to the earth's core. Professor Lidenbrock can't resist the opportunity to investigate, and with his nephew Axel, he sets off across Iceland in the company of Hans Bjelke, a native guide. The expedition descends into an extinct volcano toward a sunless sea, where they encounter a subterranean world of luminous rocks, antediluvian forests, and fantastic marine life—a living past that holds the secrets to the origins of human existence.
Originally published in 1864, Jules Verne's classic remains critically acclaimed for its style and imaginative visions. Verne wrote many fantasy stories that later proved remarkably prescient, and his distinctive combination of realism and romanticism exercised a lasting influence on writers as diverse as Mark Twain, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Jean-Paul Sartre.
