Mr. Clark brought each character to life and made the listen so enjoyable. I will look for more from him.
Penncroft, human and a good sort.

A classic and deservedly so.
Written over 144 years ago and it is one of my favorites. An adventure story I have listened to many times and will never tire of. Excellent narration.
Jules Verne is the father of science-fiction Set the age of the Civil War and written about the same time this is one of the first early versions of science-fiction writing.
Very good storyline and excellent detail of almost all portions of the book when describing the process is used for farming and scientific exploration and also when describing the island. Only issue I found is that some of the solution seems way too easy.
Very good book that none of the movie adaptations give justice
Exiting, intriguing, addictive
Like Swiss Family Robinson, but more focused on the science. The relationship between the characters is familial and supportive and inspiring.
No, I haven't. Would love to try!
No, it is too long for that, but I did listen in large time shares, say 45 minutes to an hour at a sitting.
Can't believe I haven't read this before. Very underrated, should be mandatory reading along with Swiss Family Robinson and Robinson Crusoe.
This is a very fun book and it is of no wonder that it has survived decades as a best read. It has it all; mystery, intrigue, suspence, sorrow, laughter, and even references of how to survive in a desolate situation. For those that like to learn something as they read rather than just the mystery of a story, this book is a must read.
Maybe. Jules Verne writing style is definitely from his time period and it was hard to keep interested. Slogged though it only because I never quit on anything.
TOO much scientific and botanical terms. I had no idea what kind of animal or plant he was describing.
Berny Clark's performance was the ONLY thing I actually liked. He's great and I would definitely listen to another book he reads.
Only that it is a classic and was on my bucket list.
You will discover that Jules Verne more than just inspired LOST he wrote it. Granted tv had to add to it to stretch it out over multiple seasons but it is Verne's story. Wonderful
Restless, relentless and rouge.
Wow. Great story of survival, grit and championing the wild. Thoroughly enjoyed this book from beginning to end.
