Uneven but entertaining.

(4 Sterne)

Verne often introduces interesting elements (like the giants they see from a distance) then drops them with little development. None-the-less a great adventure story and I see many notes of humor in it that I did not detect when I read this many years ago as a boy. Of the many readers who contributed to this audio edition, I preferred the first one, "the soon-to-be-famous Vinnie Bove" for his theatrical flair for voices and I wish he had recorded the whole book.

I love reading books but I don't always have time to read, this way I can do more than one thing at a time! and amaze book

(4 Sterne)

Fun book, if Verne's least scientific, though he makes fun of that himself. The changing of readers was a bit uneven, but none were a chore to listen to and a couple were quite excellent!

multiple readers

(4 Sterne)

all of the readers for this book were excellent, but I found it a bit distracting that there was a different reader for each chapter

(5 Sterne)

enjoyed the story, all readers spoke clearly, plus this is the original Verne copy and not a translation with added chapters
