Oh dear!!!

Excellent story - Jules Verne can never be faulted, but the whole experience was ruined by the whining voice of the American narrator. Got as far as chapter 2 and gave up with it.

Horrible reading

If only the reader would not have used a stupid accent for certain characters-which is not only annoying but cannot be understood what is said-, this would be great. I really cannot make out what he's saying and so could not listen to the book.
