Reviews

fun adventure


(5 stars)

This was fun to listen to and well read. The voice goes well with the character of Fogg who is dignified and manly. A character who is truly a cool dude. This would be great for a kid but also enjoyable for adults, in terms of the adventure and the comment on how a man can walk in the world.

I love this book; a true class! First class narrator☆☆☆☆☆

A must!!

A "page turner"

After seeing the 2022 PBS version of this, it was a delight to experience the original. So much more to the story. it was a reminder of the stories in my tv- deprived childhood listening to the radio. This reader is someone I will look for other readings.

What a trip! Ready to go see the world now!


(5 stars)

I've always loved Verne, this story was no exception. I thought I knew the story of Fogg, but was proved wrong many times, and pleasantly so. Snelson is a great narrator, perfect for this book.

perfect!


(5 stars)

What a fantastic adventure, told with a wonderful style.Verne never fails to enchant and entertain. The story captures a bygone era like a capsule, with its colonial mindset in full force, modern readers beware!


(5 stars)

The book is a classic and a very pleasant one, nothing more to say..but what I want to say is that I would love to have this man as my personal reader. Absolutely fantastic.


(5 stars)

Such an amazing classic that checks off all the boxes. Jules Verne is timeless. The reader nailed it absolutely loved Ralphs voice its like listening to a nice camp fire with its warm soothing crackling. I really dug the job he did really brought it to life guy is a total gem should consider becoming a professional.

one of my favorite all-time classics red especially well by this reader. He keeps you very engaged and very interested with his voice inflection of a story that's well known
