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.

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.
