Jules Verne (1828-1905) is one of the most recognizable names in Western literature, coming to be known as one of the Fathers of Science-Fiction. Although he studied to be a lawyer and held stock trading jobs, he quickly learned that he had a knack for weaving adventurous stories of travels and expeditions. It didn’t hurt that one of his teachers may have been inventor Brutus de Villeroi, who created the first submarine for the U.S. Navy. Verne wrote about air travel and space travel 50 years before either was possible. One of his most famous works is A Journey to the Center of the Earth, a classic adventure novel published in 1864. The story involves a German Professor Von Hardwigg, who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the center of the Earth. He, his nephew Harry, and their guide Hans encounter many adventures on the journey, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards. One of Verne's main ideas with his stories was also to educate readers as to the different kinds of extinct creatures throughout different geological ages, from ice ages to dinosaurs. It is one of Verne's most acclaimed works, and Journey to the Center of the Earth continues to be a popular classic today.

About the Author:

Jules Verne is best known for his novels A Journey to the Centre of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, The Mysterious Island, and Around the World in Eighty Days. Verne is often referred to as the "Father of science fiction" because he wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before airplanes, spacecrafts, and submarines were invented.

Review:

"Verne's imagination has given us some of the greatest adventure stories of all time."
— Daily Mail

"Journey to the Centre of the Earth is one of the most famous novels ever written. Verne has left us an extraordinary book, which has withstood the test of time better than some of the science described within it. It has brought delight to generations of readers, and will for many more. There is nothing so rare as the chance to take an impossible journey, and to believe it so powerfully that we wonder if we will make it out alive. That's magic. And that's Verne's gift."
Michael Crichton, Daily Telegraph

"Fantasised a parallel world to ours under the earth's crust. This hypothesis was both popular and subscribed to, even by reputable scientists, in the 19th century. Verne's tale... remains the best of its (scientifically) preposterous kind."
John Sutherland, Guardian
