Man reads words without comprehension...

If Stephen Hawking narrated this story it would be only marginally less emotional, and only slightly more mechanical than that of John Bolens. I struggled through this story to find to my absolute horror that this "narrator" had butchered a worthwile classic. Vernes knowledge of the subject matter seems remarkable when it is considered that at the time this story was written how little much "fact" can be found in the novels of his popular contemporaries. A corker of a yarn as well so do get the book, but PLEASE, keep away from this recording!

So bad that a certain grandeur creeps in

This may be a wonderful book, but the reading was so awful I couldn't concentrate on the content and gave up after about an hour or two. The reader does all of the dialogue (and there is a lot of it) in an absurdly exaggerated Russian accent. At first it was funny, but it got old fast. Don't waste your money on this one.

Sounds like a robot is reading it

Not much to say about the book. It is considered one of the best works of Vernes. My problem is with the narration. It does not sound like a human at all. I can only describe it like the voice from very old documentaries (early '80s). It is boring, monotonous and tiring to the ears.
