Niels Klim's Underground Travels, originally published in Latin as "Nicolai Klimii Iter Subterraneum" (1741) is a satirical science-fiction/fantasy novel written by Ludvig Holberg, a Norwegian-Danish dramatist, historian, and essayist, born in Bergen, Norway. It was his first and only novel. It describes a utopian society from an outsider's point of view, and often pokes fun at diverse cultural and social topics such as moral, science, sexual equality, religion, governments, and philosophy.

Nicely done

I enjoyed the reading and the story very much

Moderately interesting

(2.5 stars)

Well read, but otherwise mediocre. Also, inexplicably, the author chose to insert brief (fortunately) but regular bits of poetry. I cannot stand poetry and I am dumbfounded as to why the author felt this necessary or somehow beneficial. This is not an author that I would pursue further.
