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.
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.
