Audible Editor Reviews

With a voice that insists on attention, John Carlisle performs Jules Verne's thrilling classic revolving around a gigantic sea monster that is reportedly roaming the seas and sinking ships. Carlisle masterfully delivers the tale of three men who set off on an American frigate; their goal: killing the "gigantic cetacean." Performing with passion, intensity, and impeccable diction, Carlisle illuminates each character by subtle vocal changes. He draws listeners into the world of Captain Nemo - a "terrible avenger, a perfect archangel of hatred" - his submarine, The Nautilus, and the world beneath the sea.

Publisher's Summary

The year is 1866. The maritime world is gripped by fear after reported sightings of a huge and terrible sea monster. Monsieur Aronnax, a distinguished professor of natural history, pronounces the creature to be a giant narwhal and is invited to join an official expedition to track down the beast. But Professor Aronnax is proved wrong; the beast is not of the natural world, but is a huge submarine. When he is pulled out of the sea by the enigmatic Captain Nemo, and imprisoned on the Nautilus, he experiences at first hand the marvels and perils of submarine life. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is possibly the first and finest work of science fiction; plausible, terrifying and utterly gripping.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
