I struggled to keep listening. The narrator was very dry and monotone. The book would have been better with an animated narration.

Despite being the better known volume, this is actually the second in the Robur series following Robur The Conqueror. If you have seen the Vincent Price film you have seen an amalgamation of the two stories. In my opinion, this volume is the weaker of the two and less compelling to listen to. Little new ground is covered and characters are pretty paper thin. Recommended only if you want to hear the entire story or are a Verne aficionado.
I also found the performance to be somewhat stilted with an odd cadence. It was not horrendous, but it was distracting.
Everything is wrong about this one:
- Too short
- Hardly any story
- Feel like a (too long) introduction
- Feels too implausable - and this IS a Jules Verne novel!
- The antagonist doesn't do ANYTHING! And still calls himself "Master of the World"...
