Read this book in my early teens, watched the film several times. However, reading it again was such a lovely experience. I felt part of the journey, moving through the narrow passages of the earth's core, the claustrophobia was tangible. This time round, I fully understood the references made to other natural wonders of the world. This is a great yarn that whatever age you are, as long as you can read, you must read it and you will thoroughly enjoy.

This is a novel that appeals to only a few, possibly those who like myself read and reread it when in their teens.(A long time ago).At the time Science Fiction was not approved of unless it was Dan Dare etc. To be frank it is dated, nowadays the plot, technology and characterisation is seen as one dimensional. And it is.But. Reading it does take you back to younger days, if you have any to remember. What I am trying to say is that at the time it was Independence Day, Lord of the rings et al. Please read it but do allow for its age. And enjoy.

It may have been written a long time ago but it made me want to go to the places mentioned to see for myself.

It took me back to my childhood when I first read it and it retains all of its interest to this day
