As someone who has spent a lot of time spelunking (caving) I found this story intriguing, fun, and a bit far-fetched.

The story is a bit dated, but charming nonetheless. There were times that I wished the story would've paced things a bit differently. For example, there was a lot more time spent in setting up the background and the journey to the cave entrance yet there were some profound discoveries made in the cave system that could've provided many more pages of story to investigate.

All criticism aside I really enjoyed the pure adventure of Verne's classic.
