A Journey into the Interior of the Earth

A Journey into the Interior of the Earth is a science fiction novel by French author Jules Verne.

A German scientist discovers an ancient runic message, which when translated proves to be a map to the center of a hollow Earth! The professor and his nephew then embark on a dangerous adventure, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, down an Icelandic volcano to explore an unknown world in the interior of the Earth.

The category of subterranean fiction existed well before Verne. However his novel's distinction lay in its well-researched Victorian science and its inventive contribution to the science-fiction subgenre of time travel—Verne's innovation was the concept of a prehistoric realm still existing in the present-day world. Journey inspired many later authors, including Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his novel The Lost World, Edgar Rice Burroughs in his Pellucidar series, and J. R. R. Tolkien in The Hobbit. The novel has been adapted to several films throughout the years (1959, 1989 and 2008).

A Journey into the Interior of the Earth was first published in 1877. Translated by Frederic Malleson. Audiobook read by Mark Nelson, running time 8 hours, 1 min. Unabridged full version. 

Jules Verne (1828 – 1905) was a French writer who pioneered the science fiction genre. Many of his novels involve elements of technology that were fantastic for the day but later became commonplace. Verne is the second most translated author in the world (following Agatha Christie), and his works appear in more translations per year than those of any other writer. Verne is one writer sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction".
