    The science fiction classic that coined the term "time machine" and is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel. A must listen for any fan of science fiction!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?

    no, he has a strange halting speech that is distracting. I was actually seriously considering if it was narrated by some advanced computer program stitching together reused pieces of voice recording.

  • The Island of Doctor Moreau

    The Island of Doctor Moreau is part science-fiction and part horror. However, it is much more than that. The novel also raises questions about the ethical limits of scientific experiments, playing God, and the distinction between humans and animals. Shipwreck survivor, Edward Prendick is rescued and dropped off at a remote Pacific Island, where a disgraced British biologist has fled to continue his experimental work on human-animal hybrids.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would remove the background noises/music. They are too loud and not done well. I returned the book to get a different narration

    In Jules Verne's classic tale Professor Von Hardwigg and his nephew Harry discover the entrance to an ancient volcanic tunnel in Iceland. They choose to explore it for the mysteries it may hold, the Professor for scientific knowledge, and Harry to prove his bravery to a beautiful girl. It is a dangerous journey that may destroy them both. As they travel deep into the caverns they encounter a subterranean world that pre-existed man. It is an adventure as fascinating and strange as any explorer ever recorded. Finally, with their equipment lost and food running low they must face the consequences of a vital choice.

    Zachary says: "Great book, average narration"

    What other book might you compare Journey to the Center of the Earth to and why?

    It is similar in style, subject, and plot to the Mysterious Island and the Lost World, likely because they are from the same time period.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator gets a bit too dramatic sounding when there isn't really a reason to. It seems like he wanted to make the science references less dry, but it sounded out place to me. Otherwise, I liked his narration.
