I love books. Love to read them, listen to them, and build my stash of them.
Tim Curry's narration of this book is excellent. He made the story come alive so that it was easy to visualize what he was telling.
This is an enjoyable story, despite the frequent whining of one character.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is used to reading novels, or even just getting into them. There is no bad language and the story is gripping.
The story takes place in the 1800s, and something that excited the characters in that time isn't necessarily super exciting now. Don't get me wrong, the adventure part was pretty fun, but the social aspects were dated.
This book is a classic for a reason, and Tim Curry brings it to life like never before in a truly entertaining performance. I've listened to it many times and will continue to whenever i am in need of 8 hours of wonder and discovery!
Verne had an art and command of eloquent vocabulary like I've never seen before. He has a way of choosing words that not only deepens the understanding of characters and plot, but it makes the reading of the book like the eating of rich and decadent chocolate-- the taste is rich and satisfying in small amounts.
Possibly the best performance I've ever heard in an audiobook. Text is full of science-with-an-exclamation-point, I loved every line.
