I watched the movie before I read the book. After reading the book, I discovered that the book was better than the movie; and I thought the movie was pretty good! This book is about a journey to find the center of the earth. I thought it was fantastic...the dangers of the underground and the unknown, the tretchery of fellow adventurers, and the excitment of discovery. I found that this book satisfied my craving for adventure, and I highly enjoyed another of Jules Verne's stories.
