    Story
    "Garbled Audio"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator has a great voice, but his repeated and terrible mispronunciation of "monsieur" made me wince every time.


    Any additional comments?

    I know that this audio book was bargain-priced, but it ended up being worthless, because the audio is completely garbled/unintelligible beginning in Chapter 5.

    Story
    "Very poor fluency by reader."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Spend the extra few dollars on another production of this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Such a great story is worthy of a better performance.


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

    I would avoid purchasing another auditioned performed by Mr. Monroe.

    Story
    "narration is BAD"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have loved this story since childhood and looked forward to listening to it - unfortunately, the experience is rather painful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the nonchalance of the whole and the subtle humor.


    What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

    The voice itself is pleasant but the manner - it is quite bad. Stilted, broken, pompous, with strange accents and even more strange pauses - it seems the narrator just learned to read about 25 minutes ago and this is the very first book he ever reads aloud.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Around the World in 80 Days?

    I'd change the narrator.

    "Jules Verne's best!"

    If you like adventure books, you will love this one. In my opinion, this is by far the best book Jules Verne ever wrote. You will LOVE the twist at the end!

    "Audio skips"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    After about an hour, the audio begins to skip and is not understandable.


    Any additional comments?

    Need to be fixed.

    "Beware; badly narrated"

    The narrator has an extraordinary technique of narrating half the sentence, then pausing, then finishing the sentence. This he does for EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE. I still haven't decided if this is due to a poorly taught (or poorly understood) narration technique, or if he's not just not very good at, y'know...reading.
    Either way avoid, there are much better unabridged options for this book.
