A great classic

This book is filled with adventure and wonder. I listened to it while backpacking in the South Cumberland State Park and it was a great companion.

Take the time and enjoy the ambiance

AC Doyle spins a tale like Kipling. You have to just stop and look at the world as the words create it. Did you like "The Man Who would be King"... Movie or print. This is like that but the movies of this story are a crude mirage of the elegance that Doyle includes in his telling of this tale. There are no blonde babes getting mauled by bats or any of that other Hollywood farce. Just the classical retelling of a remarkable journey.

Good performance but very meh book

Listened because it was free on audible and I thought It’d be worth reading a classic, but it has sharpened my resolve not to read books just because they are very old. The story is predictable, the plot is plodding, and there is so much weird racist stuff that I can’t say I enjoyed this at all. Journey to the center of the earth is much better very similar story, even though that is also a plodding old book.

exciting and well narrated

Parts of it read like Jurassic Park the movie without the heavy science and technology of Jurassic Park the novel. The story has additional elements as well and of course Arthur Conan Doyle did it first. I was able to get through this in one day without getting bored or being tempted to switch to another book.
