I tried to like this book. I really tried. When I was a kid, I enjoyed works like Mysterious Island. I also enjoyed 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, so I figured this would be ok. Boy was I wrong. This is one of those books that have so much filler at the beginning that by the time it gets to the core of the matter (the actual voyage), you pretty much don't give a rat's ass, pardon the language. Lidenbrock is a dumbass pure and simple; one of the most irritating characters in literature I have had the displeasure of reading. A pity really since I have liked other works by Jules Verne, but this is one to definitely skip. If you still want to try Verne, try some of this other works. For a similar feel to this novel, but better, try some of Conan Doyle's Professor Challenger stories. ( )

Like I said, this guy was my introduction to sci fi. Cannot forget this one. I was 14 when I devoured his books, including this one.

“Wherever he saw a hole he always wanted
to know the depth of it. To him this was important.”

“I dream with my eyes open.”

“If at every instant we may perish, so at every instant we may be saved.” ( )
