Nautilus Adventure or Essay

I love these stories but unfortunately here they are read with what comes across as a total disconnect from the story being read. The narrator sounds like he is reading a bus timetable. Unfortunately that carries the same feeling over to the listener.

Audio quality is good but occasionally sibilance or a strange mild distortion creeps in. (I'm not talking about the narrator's own way of saying 's', this is in addition to that. Disappointed.

An extraordinary collection of the classics

An underwater exploration with the secretive Captain Nemo, a journey into an icelandic volcano, sailing around the world with Phileas Fogg or hijacking a Confederate balloon. These are all worlds and situations you can visit through this Audiobook and immerse yourself in some of the most celebrated fiction books of the literary world.

A wonderful collection of four of the most famous books by legendary author and science-fiction pioneer, Jules Verne. This compilation includes the following titles: Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea, Journey to the Center of The Earth, Around The World in 80 Days, and The Mysterious Island.

These stories are brought to life through Mr. Jim D. Johnstons immaculate narration. His deep voice gives these timeless tales a feeling of antiquity which perfectly matches the tone used in the actual text. While listening to this audiobook collection I was transported into a world of adventure where I felt like I was living the story right next to the characters.

With 43 hours worth of material, this audiobook can take quite some time to finish. However it is well worth it as it includes four of Verne's most popular works all piled into a single playlist. I found listening to this collection especially rewarding while driving, its entertaining without distracting you too much and can turn even the most mundane of situations into one filled with excitement.
