Reviews

awesome old school action and adventure

(5 stars)

Really good book. Wished that Alex Foster would have read it all though. Some narrators really were crap

(5 stars)

a good read with a surprise ending ;)

phineas fogg always entertains

(5 stars)

loved it again.

First Half Outstanding

(4 stars)

The recording and the story were both very entertaining. The voice for the first half was wonderful. He was able to handle different characters and do many accents. Toward the middle and the end however, the quality dropped off. The story is a nail-biting experience and it seems much more important to have a good recorder for the ending. Once we were through the first few chapters I was hooked.

Jules Vernes is epic!!!!

(5 stars)

its magnificence is compeling

Around the World in 80 Days

(3 stars)

worth it

(5 stars)

i understand people want accurate reviews, but some seem to forget that this reading is volunteer based and they wouldn't have it if some of these "bad" readers didn't donate their time, that you seemed to not have to read this book. although some were worse than others, you can still enjoy this book through the second half of the readings, and i appreciated the effort shown.

First half is great...

(3 stars)

I have to agree with others who have noted that the first half of the book is read excellently, but the second half is mediocre to poor. I do understand that these are volunteers, not professionals, but someone who mispronounces a basic word like "country" simply should not be used as a reader.
