The wealthy Professor Challenger (of The Lost World fame) had decided that our planet is alive, protected by its crust, oblivious to the scum of life on its surface. He drills down eight miles to try to communicate with the organism.
The story is a bit of a lark, funny/serious, with now women or children cluttering up the place with emotions. It ends just as it begins to get tedious.
