Another great story by the masterful Verne. The first part of this story, Part One of the Adventures of Captain Hatteras, has been thoroughly ruined by the inclusion of an awful, almost totally incomprehensible reading, which encompasses the initial 20 chapters. It is a mystery why this reading was allowed to remain and be inflicted upon the listening public, and one questions the competence of the coordinator of that volume's volunteer readers. However perhaps this can serve as a reminder of how badly things can go wrong, and thus a warning to others. The second part of the story, which didn't suffer from that same reader's inability to speak English, bowled along engagingly from beginning to end.

I can see how this man was a visionary for the people and a hero for young men

The readers were much easier to understand.

great book

I must say I enjoyed the reader in the first part referred to in the last review very much. I had no trouble to understand her and think she has a great voice.
