Editor reviews

To say Nigel Lambert brings this classic from Jules Verne to life would be a gross understatement. Though he’s the sole performer for this audiobook, Lambert has somehow recreated Verne’s magical world in full, with a unique energy for each character from Professor Otto Lidenbrock to Hans Bjelke. Listen along as Professor Lidenbrock and company descend down an Icelandic volcano and into the adventure of a lifetime. With Nigel Lambert at the helm, this production of Journey to the Center of the Earth is not to be missed.

Summary

Here's an exciting adventure fantasy, written in Jules Verne's first-person narrative style. Journey to the Centre of the Earth is a ripping Victorian yarn, one of the best of the genre. The sequence of amazing happenings are presented in a delightful, matter-of-fact way and surely reflect the attitude of the Great European explorers of the 19th century, who, in the midst of some appalling situation, would calmly sit down with a cup of tea and consider their plight. Nigel Lambert's abridgement remains true to the original and he tells the story grippingly.
