      “Journey to the Center of the Earth” is one of the most interesting works by Jules Verne who traveled in his books to places people have never seen and he poured him rich imagination into his books. Many things he described were fiction then but they are possible now, as he predicted.   The themes of the search for meaning in life and life's inevitable tragedies both predominate. The Good Earth derives its title from the author's conviction that a connection to and reverence for the earth can actually lead to inner goodness and peace, and that a disconnection from nature can only result in a lack of fulfillment. Buck presents human beings as transitory, with the earth 5/5.

      Written with the rare talent capable of turning teenage drama into urgent, adult fiction, The Most Dangerous Place on Earth makes vivid a modern adolescence lived in the gleam of the virtual but rich with sorrow, passion, and humanity.   The Most Dangerous Place on Earth doesn’t pull punches.. At the age of 13, a tragic thing happens to a classmate. Some kids blame themselves. Most don’t. We follow them through their high school years and the traumas they experience and inflict.
