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.

What made the experience of listening to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea the most enjoyable?
Jules Verne was clearly brilliant, captivated by new discoveries and the possibilities chemical and mechanical engineering presented 150 years ago. This work was prescient in many respects, yet full of natural "flaws" from the science of the day. The narrator rolls dreamily through the myriad Latin names for creatures, imparting the character's awe at the wonders of the deep. I loved it.
What about Alan Munro’s performance did you like?
Here's the only fault I found: the volume was insufficient! I had to amplify by connecting my Kindle to my radio. Otherwise, the recording was excellent.

the audio book of 20000 Leagues Under the Sea was very captivating most most rememberable moment was about sea creatures being described very interesting to listen about the battles Wars Islands visited in all it was a captivating the narrator was very strong voiced in his Reading kept me interested and I finished the whole book very good I reckon thank you very much audible
The book contains many many lists of sea creatures and Latin names, which can get a bit long. Read very well, the narrator's voice suits the story style
Great story but the performance was very stilted and there were many noticable edits. I would still highly recommend it though as it is a classic and cheap to buy.
