Publisher's Summary

Mr. Kazallon thought that booking passage on a cargo ship from Charleston to Liverpool would be a charming way to return to his English homeland. If only he knew! A crazed sea captain, a disaster in the hold, storms, oppressive heat, sharks and starvation are just some of the many travails that will beset both passengers and crew. Will any of them survive the wreck of the Chancellor?

Overall, Good

Good story and good deliverance. The British accent was nice, but suffered on animated voices.

A Masterpiece, but not one for the faint of heart-

As always, Jules Verne provides a masterpiece. Though this is perhaps his darkest work, it should not be avoided.

Worst narrator I have ever heard

I am a fan of Verne and was excited to find this free version. The story is short and interesting, but the narrator is probably the worst I have ever heard. Sounds like Cruella Deville’s spoiled stepchild being forced to read a story so he can go back to sleep. And his french accent…..my goodness.

Interesting Story, but not Super Iintense

It was an OK story. But I guess the main charicter was so worn out by the end of his arduous ordeal, aparently he didnt have the energy left to tell any kind of a detailed ending at all.

Could Not Finish

I love Jules Vernes stories but the narrator was so awful, I couldn't make it through the second chapter.

Had an earful

I loved this book but the presentation here is dreadful, poor soiund quality compounded by a narrator who makes fingernails down the blackboard a more pleasing sound. How audiable have the audacity to charge for this afront to the ears is beyond me. AVOID AT ALL COSTS
