I always enjoy Jules Verne. This particular story includes two of my own personal favorite subjects – underground adventure and Scotland. Verne, as always, weaves a human story with characters you come to know as the story progresses.
I must admit, though, as certain details unfolded in the beginning of the story, in my mind I painted quite a different picture of how things would turn out than the way they did. But, leaving it to the air of credibility that “is” Verne, the story concluded just where it should have.
A quick and fun read. I found several mistakes made during the conversion of this book (paragraphs divided into two) and went about correcting them. As I did so, I inserted into the book many original illustrations by James Ferat. They add a wonderful visual dimension to the read. Read it here!
