I love Jules Verne and he was way ahead of his time. This is a look at the coal mining industry and is a very interesting story. It was converted to the kindle edition and seems to be a very good conversion. I only noticed a few mistakes in the writing.
The characters are interesting. I really liked it overall and you have to remember it was written in 1887. It tells the story of a mine that is closed when the coal runs out. the story takes place 10 years after the coal runs out when the old mine engineer James Starr receives a letter to return to the mine that was thought to have gone dry. He finds the Ford family who has remained living in the mine and hasnt given up hope that it still contained coal. What mysteries remain hidden in the mine and who tries to stop them from finding the hidden things. Inrtiguing story.
