Publisher's Summary

A mysterious sea monster, theorized by some to be a giant narwhal, is sighted by ships of several nations; an ocean liner is also damaged by the creature. The United States government finally assembles an expedition to track down and destroy the menace. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and narrator of the story, master harpoonist Ned Land, and Aronnax's faithful assistant Conseil join the expedition.
After much fruitless searching, the monster is found, and the ship charges into battle. During the fight, the ship's steering is damaged, and the three men are thrown overboard. They find themselves stranded on the "hide" of the creature, only to discover to their surprise that it is a large metal construct. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo.

Terrible Narration for a Fantastic Story

Would you try another book from Jules Verne and/or Alan Munro?

I couldn't even get through half of this beloved story because of the subpar narration. The narration sounds like they recorded Mr. Munro saying all the phrases in random order and spliced them together haphazardly. He doesn't even sound like a native speaker in this rendition. He breaks sentences at awkward moments and speaks in a dreary monotone the entire time I bared to listen to.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alan Munro?

Literally anyone else. Gilbert Gottfried. Bob Dylan. Sylvester Stallone.

The Deadpan of Alan Munro

Great novel, always been a favorite and deserving of its status as a classic. This was my first encounter with the narrator, and I have endured him through many since. The novels he narrates are always priced cheap, so if you can tolerate him then it's a good deal.
