Riassunto: [Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]
[Read by Simon Prebble]
Geologist Otto Lidenbrock is perusing an ancient Icelandic manuscript when he discovers a mysterious encrypted note. The message reveals the account of a sixteenth-century explorer who claims to have found a passageway to the center of the earth.
In his quest to penetrate the planet's primordial secrets, the impetuous professor, together with his quaking nephew, Axel, and their devoted guide, Hans, sets off immediately for Iceland. Descending through the belly of a volcano into the bowels of the Earth, they discover an astonishing subterranean world of prehistoric proportions.
A classic of science fiction that helped give birth to the genre, this imaginative speculation on the earth's nature is both a rousing adventure story and an apt portrait of the psychology of the questing scientist. Though often scientifically outdated, books of Verne's ''Voyages Extraordinaires'' series still retain their sense of wonder that appealed to readers of his time, and still provoke an interest in the sciences among the young.
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."
