Description

A mysterious sea monster, theorized by some to be a giant narwhal, is sighted by ships of several nations; an ocean liner is also damaged by the creature. The United States government finally assembles an expedition to track down and destroy the menace. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and narrator of the story, master harpoonist Ned Land, and Aronnax's faithful assistant Conseil join the expedition.

After much fruitless searching, the monster is found, and the ship charges into battle. During the fight, the ship's steering is damaged, and the three men are thrown overboard. They find themselves stranded on the "hide" of the creature, only to discover to their surprise that it is a large metal construct. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo.

The Deadpan of Alan Munro

Great novel, always been a favorite and deserving of its status as a classic. This was my first encounter with the narrator, and I have endured him through many since. The novels he narrates are always priced cheap, so if you can tolerate him then it's a good deal.

Unabridged & so rich in 19th C. scientific detail!

What made the experience of listening to Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea the most enjoyable?

Jules Verne was clearly brilliant, captivated by new discoveries and the possibilities chemical and mechanical engineering presented 150 years ago. This work was prescient in many respects, yet full of natural "flaws" from the science of the day. The narrator rolls dreamily through the myriad Latin names for creatures, imparting the character's awe at the wonders of the deep. I loved it.

What about Alan Munro’s performance did you like?

Here's the only fault I found: the volume was insufficient! I had to amplify by connecting my Kindle to my radio. Otherwise, the recording was excellent.

Timeless and fantastic story, monotonous narrator.

A true timeless classic, however the narrator fails to keep a continuous engaging reading.
The story makes up for it though.

classic story terrible narrative

the story was just as I remembered it fantastic but the narrator was terrible to say the least he showed no enthusiasm no excitement threw out the story which made for a very long novel while his voice droning on not contributing to any of the excitement and wonder of this fantastic story

Bass!?

I turn down the bass in my car completely and it's still overpowering. Very lazy job on the audio.

Good Narrator

A lengthy read and a lengthy listen. Good narrator. I remember reading it in High School. Jules Verne created some memorable characters, but his story skills could have been improved. 99k words without much story arc, lots of experiences played along a 1st person calendar. Still a great book.

Terrible narration of classic scifi

The narrator's delivery is choppy, often unintelligible and ruins this classic scifi masterpiece. Jules Vern must be doing 20,000 RPM's in his grave.
