    Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days. With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne's hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.

    Gary says: "Fabulous narration for Verne Classic"
    "Terrific retro fun"
    Overall

    About the audio file - no preset chapter breaks. Level 3 a bit 'tinny'. Jim Dale is terrific and a pleasure to listen as he works through the multitude of accents and personalities.
    About the story - I missed this as a kid, it was already a legend. It's somewhat politically incorrect, but that makes it more fun. We found our selves laughing that "he did NOT just say that!" and it was a hoot to think about the Victorian perspective on world travel and the British Gentleman's culture. Very enjoyable to listen in a car during a journey.

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Mark Grannis says: "Not history, not theology, just great fiction"
    "only a little dissappointed"
    Overall

    Audio specific: Many busy characters without much differentiation in voices - gets a little confusing when distracted by driving, etc... Who? What? Pretty good at level 3 quality.
    As for book review in general - found the romantic sub-plot to be poorly presented and silly. But the story was very engaging and well told overall.
