Jules Verne's fascinating novel takes the listener on a journey beneath the sea to the far reaches of the world. The figure of Captain Nemo provides a dark undercurrent to the optimism of Verne's narrator, Pierre Aronnax. Bill Homewood's narration is truly delightful. His melodic cadence delivers the descriptive prose engagingly, and his vocal characterizations are also convincing. As Professor Aronnax, he enthusiastically expounds upon scientific explanations, adding excitement to what could be dry bits of text. Ned Land has a gruff, burly voice, while the mysterious Captain Nemo speaks in a slightly foreign accent. Homewood's narration invites the listener onto the NAUTILUS and a world of undersea adventure. D.M.W. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2018]
