    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"
    "Jim Dale is fabulous!"
    Overall

    I'm drawn to rich voices and Jim Dale's is wonderful. I'd love to hear more! And it's great to hear the original text of this old work.

  • Equal Rites: Discworld #3

    Lisa L. Hilton says: "Lots of fun"
    "Perhaps if we plead with Nigel Planer?"
    Overall

    Ms. Imrie's vocal characterizations are strained, unnatural, and painful to listen to. Many of the voices are ill-fitted to the characters. The wizards sound like women and the women sound like crones who have smoked to excess for too many years. I will avoid audiobooks read by Ms. Imrie in the future.
