Superb narration of a difficult classic!

I first read Jules Verne’s epic some 50 years ago, as a youngster keen to devour anything by Verne, Wells, Wyndham etc. I must admit, I found it heavy going then but worthwhile, and images from the voyage of the Nautilus have stayed with me since then. When I spotted this free download I was in two minds - would the narration live up to my cloudy memories of reading it myself? I need not have worried! Mr Kirschner (is that spelt right?) does a superb job, conveying the mood and attitude of the 19th century characters with aplomb, wrestling manfully - and winning - with Verne’s sometimes irritating tendency to list endless obscure Latin names for flora and fauna. The narrator skilfully conveys the changing atmosphere toward the novel’s conclusion, with clear, well paced diction throughout. Thoroughly enjoyable - well done!
