Originally published 1870, this recording is from the English translation by Frederick P. Walter, published 1991, containing the unabridged text from the original French and offered up into the public domain. It is considered to be the very first science fiction novel ever written, the first novel about the undersea world, and is a classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870. It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus, as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax
Everyone keeps mentioning the first lady, but Sean in chapter 8-9 reading is horrendous. It sounds like he's speaking through a mouth full of spit he refuses to discharge. I was thuroughly disgusted
really good book but the woman from chapter 1-7-11 needs to be replaced and read by someone else I would just by the book and read it.
Lady you put people to sleep. Unfortunately this was my first audio book and you made totally uninterested. The way she reads is as if she is reading for a namesake to earn some money. I dont understand how people would even give 2 stars and some douchebags have even given 5 star rating !
I have heard a lot of audio books and some readers are really good but the woman reading chapter 1 is awful. And it's painful to listen to I couldn't hear all of it. Now with the woman in chapter 18 she has potential believe it or not. She has a good voice but it sounds like she needs to re catch her breath every time she finishes a sentence. In conclusion I would not recommend this book.
If you are hesitant on listening to this book because of the readers, don't be. True, some of the readers are better than others, but honestly, there was only one chapter that was incomprehensible. Don't pass this classic up.....
A great piece of work ... But. Many different readers creates a distracting listening experience. And I agree with many here, the woman who reads is not very engaging. She has a very affected way of speaking/ reading that is almost
What a wonderful book. So different then the movies. Very very scientifically informative. If you can get past the first two chapters with its horrible narration you will enjoy the book. I didn't want it to end.
It sounds like one reader has theatrical training and she does not know how to just read a good story. Lilting your voice down and up wow. Great book though
Oh lord. I have tried to get into this book so many times, but that woman's voice is HORRENDOUS. It is honestly unlistenable. If you skip through her first track you come across multiple other readers who are bareable, but don't get comfortable - because she comes back. From what I have been able to listen to this book is amazing but the audio does it such a disservice.
Good grief. I love this story, but some of the readers leave much to be desired. One in particular should learn how to pronounce common words. One reader was excellent, but there wasn't enough of him. I wish he'd read the entire volume.
