Journey to the Center of the Earth

Title: Journey to the Center of the Earth
Author: Jules Verne
Finished: August 26
Pages: 304

Decoding an ancient message, a boy and his Uncle find the secret to finding the center of the Earth by traveling to Iceland and finding an entrance in one of the mountains, pointed to by a shadow during a specific month.

During the journey, they are faced with many obstacles, including rushing waters, ocean, lack of food and starvation, dehydration and in the case of the boy, a few near death experiences.

I found it to be an okay story, a little slow for me and hard to follow whether or not they were still in the center or back on the surface of Earth.
