Summary

The story involves a German professor (Otto Lidenbrock in the original French, Professor Von Hardwigg in the most common English translation) who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the center of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel (Harry), and their guide Hans encounter many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy.

- Quality?

Is it too much to ask for quality? I'm sitting on a bus, wanted to enjoy the book, but the reader from track 11 on recorded by putting his 1920s microphone on the other side of the room. Ok, it's free, but shite as well!
