Jules Verne's two novels featuring Captain Nemo (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and The Mysterious Island), condensed down to two thrilling hours.
In 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, marine scientist Professor Aronnax and his stowaway daughter, Connie, join whaler Ned Land aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln to hunt an aggressive sea monster, believed to be a giant narwhale. When they engage the monster, they find to their astonishment it's an electrically powered submarine, the Nautilus, technologically far superior to any vessel known. They are rescued by the ship's enigmatic captain, Nemo....
In The Mysterious Island, military engineer Cyrus Smith, his freed slave, Neb, and reporter Grace Spilett flee the besieged city of Richmond in a balloon. Their vessel is caught in a vast storm and blown thousands of miles until it crashes on a remote Pacific island. But they soon realise that they are not alone on the island....

misleading (too many changes)
I was excited about listening to this because of the full cast, i was very very disappointed. If you are a fan of either of these books, then stay away from this, there were so many changes made to the story that it made me angry. The description mentions nothing of them taking so many liberties with such classic literature. Shame. Putting aside the erasing of characters and inclusion of brand new ones for absolutely no apparent reason, the performance was quite good, but i would have to have no knowledge of the original works of art to honestly say that I enjoyed these.....things.

good stuff overall - shorter than i exected.
i got this after finishing The War of the Worlds (Jeff Wayne's rock opera version - recommended)
its great, though pretty short - might be an abridged version of the books
