Another of Jules Verne' classic tales of adventure is all I can say abou this book. It is filled with suspence and a lot of knowledge. The story is about a man and his nephew who find a mysterious old paper written in code hidden in an old book. The code was written by another adventurer who's entire work and research was distroyed except for this one piece of paper which was written in code so no one knew who wrote it or what it said. They uncle and nephew break the code and find that this is a piece of instruction on how to find the path to the center of the very earth. This starting a wild and very dangerous adventure through caverns and rough seas surrounded by prehistoric creatures for these two characters and their guide.
This is one of Jules Verne' shorter stories. The copy I have is only 211 pages in length so it can easily be read in a day or two or three depending on how much time you have to read or how fast you may read. It is still a very entertaining book filled with knowledge and interesting facts through out the travels of these 3 characters. It is defenatly worth the read if you get a chance to pick it up.
