The story and performance were very good, but the translation was mediocre at best, not exercising the beauty of the language and somewhat dry. Recommend to try another translation.
The most interesting thing about this book is that it is an adventure speckled in between a survival guide, and an biology textbook. Every process the islanders do is described in extreme detail, from making bricks to collecting plants. Every piece of vegetation on the island is listed, class, order, species, its use, etc to the point that I would almost nod off, and then in stark contrast, something strange or frightening would happen on the island and little to no explanation would be offered, leaving you begging for more.
This pattern of dullness followed by mystery would continue through the entire book. It was an interesting experience, similar to drifting off to sleep, only to be awakened by an unexplained bump in the night. I've never had this kind of emotional experience from a book before, and would highly recommend it.
This is easily my favorite Jules Verne novel. A great story about 5 castaways using the technology of their time to truly "turn lemons into lemonade."
Full of adventure with some mystery on the side. No fan of the classics should miss it!
I had never read the book before, listening was a great way to experience this story.
The occasional mispronounced word was amusing, overall good performance.
Obviously the ending.
Made me want to go back and read Verne, 20000 leagues under the sea again.
It's a awesome book. The mystery and a what happens next is present in this book
Finally know what happens to nemo
A good reader and how he delivers the book
Cyrus Harding was my favorite character. Just the idea that such a man had that much knowledge of so many different topics that he was able to guide the rest of the colonists in recreating a new society of a kind.
did a very good job, Half way through my iPhone died and had to get a blackberry so I also had to get a different audiobook. The other guy didnt cut it.
