    A mysterious sea monster, theorized by some to be a giant narwhal, is sighted by ships of several nations; an ocean liner is also damaged by the creature. The United States government finally assembles an expedition to track down and destroy the menace. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and narrator of the story, master harpoonist Ned Land, and Aronnax's faithful assistant Conseil join the expedition.

    John S says: "A classic that everyone should read."

    What made the experience of listening to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea the most enjoyable?

    I had forgotten about the Canadian chareter beign so prevalent in the story


    What other book might you compare Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea to and why?

    Journy to the center of the earth:
    why:
    Same author
    Similar scientific / naturalist discussions
    Excellent euphamisums and descriptions of the foreign presonality and ideals without being odvoius.
    (Canadian in this book and the Icelander in Journy to the center of the Earth)


    What about Peter Hussman’s performance did you like?

    good voice work, not as much deffinition of charecter by voice action as Ive heard befroe but still very eliquently spoken.


    Any additional comments?

    chapter pauses are too long more then once i found myself checking to see if the program had paused.

    A Signature Performance: Tim Curry, the source of our inspiration, returns – this time, he captures the quirky enthusiasm of this goofily visionary adventure.

    What did you love best about Journey to the Center of the Earth: A Signature Performance by Tim Curry?

    Immersed me into the book completely, and I couldnt ask for anything more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Its a masterpiece of literature and adventure!


    What does Tim Curry bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As an auditory learner, I get much more out of hearring it articulated by a wordsmith like Mr Curry.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did nto plan to listen to it in one sitting, and thus I did not. but It was my good fortune that I was able to easily pick up where i left off with a simple click, and I found I lost no place in the story and did not need to back up and re-read the page before as I do when i leave a book. I simply continued on to my enjoyment.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you,
    if you do any other Jules Verne please let me know, I have listened to other Readers and find their pauses to be lengthey and the chapter pauses unbarably long. the puases you use are consice and perfect to their timing and requirments.- Micheal S.
