This novel tells the story of German professor Otto Lidenbrock who believes there are volcanic tubes going toward the centre of the Earth. He, his nephew Axel, and their guide Hans descend into the Icelandic volcano Snæfellsjökull, encountering many adventures, including prehistoric animals and natural hazards, before eventually coming to the surface again in southern Italy, at the Stromboli volcano. It is the third of the Voyages Extraordinaires, the 54-novel-series written by Verne, which in his own words intended “to conclude in story form my whole survey of the world’s surface and the heavens; there are still left corners of the world to which my thoughts have not yet penetrated … I have dealt with the moon, but a great deal remains to be done.” His attention to detail and scientific trivia, and his sense of wonder and exploration, are the backbone of the novels, in which the reader could acquire knowledge of geology, biology, astronomy, paleontology, oceanography, etc., as well as to travel to the exotic locations and cultures of the world through the adventures of Verne's protagonists. Some of the best known and most popular novels in history are part of this series, including Five Weeks in a Balloon (1863); Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864); Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea (1869–70); From the Earth to the Moon (1865); Around the World in Eighty Days (1873), etc.
