In Jules Verne's classic tale Professor Von Hardwigg and his nephew Harry discover the entrance to an ancient volcanic tunnel in Iceland.

Annoying Page Sounds haunt this entire recording

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is a classic book of which all can enjoy.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator's voices for the different characters are great, and his inflection and pace wonderful. The issue I have is the recording itself. The paper page sounds really detract from the story, and are throughout the entire recording.

Great book, average narration

What other book might you compare Journey to the Center of the Earth to and why?

It is similar in style, subject, and plot to the Mysterious Island and the Lost World, likely because they are from the same time period.

Any additional comments?

The narrator gets a bit too dramatic sounding when there isn't really a reason to. It seems like he wanted to make the science references less dry, but it sounded out place to me. Otherwise, I liked his narration.
