AUDIOFILE Golden Voice Simon Prebble delivers Jules Verne's classic adventure fantasy with masterful precision. Prebble creates distinct voices with cultural authenticity for Professor Lidenbrock, his nephew, Alex, and their devoted guide, Hans. When the trio breaks the runic code found in an ancient manuscript, they travel to Iceland to begin their descent into the mysterious crater that takes them to the center of the earth. Prebble's powerful narration captures the excitement of dangerous encounters along the way, such as prehistoric animals, falling rocks, and molten lava. This classic treasure was written 144 years ago. Prebble's perceptive narration brings Verne's work to life. Listeners will understand why Verne is considered the father of science fiction.
