In the novel A Journey to the Center of the Earth author Jules Verne tells the fictitious story of three men and their adventures as they descend into the depths of the earth The leading character in this expedition is a fifty-year-old German professor named Hardwigg He is an uncle to the narrator Henry Harry a simple Englishman The other man is Hans a serene Icelandic guide Professor Hardwigg finds a piece of parchment that written in Runic in a book Harry finds out before his uncle that it says there is a way to get into the center of the earth through a mountain Mt Sneffels in Iceland Harry is reluctant to tell his uncle the message because he is afraid his uncle will actually want to visit the center of the earth He was right because the professor wanted to explore as soon as possible They head off to Iceland and along the way receive Hans as their guide The journey to the mountain itself takes a while They reach the entrance to the center and from there they head inside Once in the dark labyrinths they descend this goes on for days The three men then face difficulties thirst light getting lost injuries and fatigue were among them They make many discoveries They find that theres a sea with fish and sea monsters They find forests giant mushrooms animals that look like dinosaurs and even what seems to be giant human beings The idea of writing this story came from a scientist who explored the crater of a certain mountain Verne got the idea that maybe it would be possible to descend even further into the earth Many of Vernes fantasy stories have come true in the years following his death in the year 1905 A Journey to the Center of the Earth is farthest from reality Even with the technology we have today it would be impossible for one to descend
