Classic Verne adventure novel. Worth reading, as it's a classic, but it is no great work of literature, sexist (I swear I can read a novel and not label it as "sexist"...just not this one) and full of flat characters, but at the time of its writing it would have been a great adventure in installments, it helped form a new genre and it is fun to read as a throwback to the 19th century and what the masses were reading at that time. Quick and easy to read, if nothing else.
