Poor narration

The narrator speaks way over the top, which is in it self not to bad but he puts the accents randomly in a sentence in such a way that I found it hard to understand the content.

Did not even made it trough the first chapter. I bought another version of the same book and start listening that one right away. What a difference! I advise against getting this version of the book. Luckily there are lots more to chose from.

The Classic Adventure

Jules Verne created one of the greatest adventures of all-time in this tale that revolves around a chance bet. A remarkable cast of characters and stunning locales and bursting with excitement that only a Master could conjure.

The best download

This particular book is by far the better of all books titled Around the world in 80 days by Jules Verne.
The narrator is better, not mono tone.

Excellent over all. Just the best.

Terrible narration

Great story ruined by terrible narration by someone who couldn't even pronounce Quay! American pronunciations of a classic English book ruined the experience. Shame....... Its a great book.
