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.
Sci-Fi, Fantasy and sometimes a good horror book, I also like a classic now and then.
Yes, its a classic and a good read (listen) My all time favorite book and movie (old school pat boone movie)
Tim Curry, I wish he would do more classics. Audible need more signature performances of the old school classics. Give me gritty, famous actors to read these classics and Il buy them. Give a fresh look at timeless books with a great reading from a great narrator like tim curry.
Top notch, wish he could do more, but I know he is getting sick... Thank you Mr. Curry for the books and movies you did share with us.
No, I hate abridged books, give me the full version and respect the authors true writes. No abridged books please.
Jules Verne has such a commanding and old world writing style, truly classic, especially when you look at he he created these classics.Great production, keep this sort of production going for the classics, seek after unique and commanding voices. It makes it that more special.
