Book review time:
A Journey into the Interior of the Earth by Jules Verne
214 pages; science fiction
Summary: The Professor Otto Liedenbrock came home one day with an old book of the rare variety. Out of the pages fell a note written in code. The professor labored over the possible meaning of the code but it was his nephew, Axel, who discovered it’s meaning. It was instructions on how to get to the center of the earth. And so their adventure began.
Review: This book was so ridiculously technical it was hard to follow at times. I have no science background whatsoever when it comes to geology and numerology. It was very confusing at times. There also wasn’t as much adventure as I would have thought. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen movies based off the book that add a lot to it but I just assumed it would be more adventure and less stating of facts. All in all it was an interesting read.
Recommendation: If you an stand reason something very technical, give it a try. If not, I would say avoid it.
