Facing the Flag


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.5 stars; 21 reviews)

Like The Begum's Millions, which Verne published in 1879, it has the theme of France and the entire world threatened by a super-weapon (what would now be called a weapon of mass destruction) with the threat finally overcome through the force of French patriotism.

Good story but the 1st is awful. Does he have a speech impediment? Even the kid that follows him has vastly improved since I began listening to him many books ago.
