Summary

The oceans of the world are no longer safe. Ships are being attacked and sunk by what survivors describe as a giant sea monster. The United States Government sends the frigate Abraham Lincoln to investigate, carrying renowned scientist Pierre Aronnax in hopes of solving the mystery. They soon encounter the "sea monster", which is actually a submarine, far advanced than anything the world has ever seen - commanded by Captain Nemo.

The award winning Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air presents this spectacular production of the Jules Verne classic, complete with a full cast, sound effects, and a breathtaking score by Jeffrey Gage.

Starring J.T. Turner, Allan Mayo, Joseph Zamparelli, Robin Gabrielli, and the Colonial Radio Players

Submarine

It would not be fair to judge this audiobook dramatization too harshly as I have yet to have listened nor read the original work. My review might change when I delve into the latter.
When that is said I enjoyed this audiobook very much. Not too long and not too short either. The voice acting and Sfx were top of it's class, so good I felt as if: "watching a movie with your eyes closed".
Give it a go.

Another outstanding CRT production!

While the story has been around a long time, the chance to experience it through a radio dramatization brings it different life. You get to create the images in your mind. Outstanding sound effects and music.

Surpassed my expectations

This is a difficult story to get right due to the subtle nuances of the characters involved. The cast for this presentation was spot on and the accents very well performed. It develops the intrigue of Captain Nemo so faithfully and does an outstanding job of exploring the undertones in Jules Verne’s book. A great adventure with a good dose of catharsis exploring human nature.
