Journey to the Center of the Earth: A Signature Performance by Tim Curry

94 ratings

Summary

Journey to the Center of the Earth is one of literature’s earliest works of science fiction. It vividly animates a fantastical subterranean world as an intrepid crew, led by the eccentric Otto Lidenbrock, traverses the planet’s core and its various bizarre obstacles: giant mushrooms and insects, a herd of mastodons, prehistoric humans, a treacherous pit of magma, and more. Tim Curry, narrator of the customer favorite A Christmas Carol, returns for an encore performance that delivers a range of distinct character voices and captures the energy and enthusiasm of a time when scientific exploration was a brand new adventure.

Summary

A mysterious sea monster, theorized by some to be a giant narwhal, is sighted by ships of several nations; an ocean liner is also damaged by the creature. The United States government finally assembles an expedition to track down and destroy the menace. Professor Pierre Aronnax, a noted French marine biologist and narrator of the story, master harpoonist Ned Land, and Aronnax's faithful assistant Conseil join the expedition. After much fruitless searching, the monster is found, and the ship charges into battle. During the fight, the ship's steering is damaged, and the three men are thrown overboard. They find themselves stranded on the "hide" of the creature, only to discover to their surprise that it is a large metal construct. They are quickly captured and brought inside the vessel, where they meet its enigmatic creator and commander, Captain Nemo.

Summary

Like many Jules Verne classics, The Mysterious Island takes you on an unforgettable journey of adventure and reflection. During the American Civil War, a group of Union soldiers escape their confederate captors when they steal a balloon. What they didn't anticipate is the violent storm that awaits them and leads them into uncharted territory. When the storm-damaged balloon crashes, the men are marooned on a desert island. While awaiting rescue, the soldiers must work together to stay alive by making use of their survival skills and taking advantage of the vast resources on the island. Eventually, the men make the island into a home away from home, naming it Lincoln Island, after President Lincoln. All is well until the group discovers a box of guns and ammunition that shouldn't be there. They begin to suspect the mysterious island may have its own secrets. Can the men survive long enough to be rescued off the island?

Summary

The most exciting underwater adventure ever! In 1866 a mysterious giant whale savagely attacks ships in international seas. A famous French marine biologist, Pierre Aronnax, joins the hunt to track down and incapacitate the creature. With him are his loyal servant, Conseil, and redoubtable Canadian harpooner Ned Land. They soon find that their enemy is no sea beast but a brilliantly designed submarine. They are captured and imprisoned by its master, the sinister Captain Nemo. The story is relentlessly thrilling while containing beautifully written observations of underwater life. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea has been hugely influential on popular culture, having inspired several stage and film adaptations, including a Walt Disney film with Kirk Douglas. Captain Nemo also appears as a main character in the graphic novel and film The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. Bill Homewood's distinctive voice is perfect for the French classics: He has previously read The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Three Musketeers for Naxos AudioBooks and is "...a narrator so perfectly matched to his material that you can't help but smile" (The Times). PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Based on the true story of Alexander Selkirk, who survived alone for almost five years on an uninhabited island off the coast of Chile, The Mysterious Island is considered by many to be Jules Verne’s masterpiece. “Wide-eyed mid-nineteenth-century humanistic optimism in a breezy, blissfully readable translation by Stump” (Kirkus Reviews), here is the enthralling tale of five men and a dog who land in a balloon on a faraway, fantastic island of bewildering goings-on and their struggle to survive as they uncover the island’s secret.

Summary

The War of the Rebellion is over, and the members of the American Gun Club, bored with inactivity, look around for a new project. At last they have it: "We will build the greatest projectile the world has ever seen and make the moon our 38th state!" When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space? Today, like so many of Jules Verne's prophecies, space travel is a reality. Here's a fun adventure story that shows how Verne, with foresight that is at times almost eerily accurate, envisioned a trip to the moon.

Summary

Ce roman "extraordinaire" au sens premier du terme est l'un des premiers fleurons d'un genre promis à une grande réussite. Né en 1920, Jean Desailly, d'abord passionné par les Beaux-Arts se tourne vers le Théâtre. En 1942, il remporte le premier Prix du Conservatoire et entre rapidement à la Comédie Française. En même temps le Cinéma s'accapare sa silhouette et son talent... bientôt les maisons de disque le réclament. En 1955, Desailly qui incarne le flegme et l'élégance, avait été remarqué par Sacha Guitry ( Si Versailles m'était conté) et jouait aux côtés de Gérard Philippe et Michèle Morgan dans Les grandes manœuvres, lit le Voyage au centre de la Terre. Sa diction impétueuse emporte l'auditeur au centre de la terre et persuade que ce voyage en rêve pourrait bien être réalité.

A second chance romance.... What happens when you fall for the boy next door? Bea Norwood had the market on normal. Drama free life? Check. A single-mother who doubled as her confidant and partner in crime? Check. A neighbor and best friend she trusted more than anyone? Check. But that was until the day her mother remarried. The day that changed everything. When her best friend's cousin, Liam Falcon, is sent to live with his aunt and uncle to clean up his act, Bea finds herself falling for the boy next door. With their hearts so infinitely entwined, Bea turns to Liam as her only escape from her new step-brother's daily torment at home. Bea thought their love could conquer anything. But she was wrong. Love was for fools, and she was the biggest fool of them all. When Liam left Lakeport, he took her heart with him, shattering the organ to pieces. Six years later, Liam takes a trip back to Lakeport to visit his family, and to see her. His first love. The girl who holds his heart. The same girl who shattered it six years ago without looking back. Liam is hell-bent on seeing Bea again after six years, but what he finds tears his heart in half. Bea Norwood is a shell of the girl he fell in love with. Underneath the baggy clothes, and pale skin, he knows she's still in there somewhere, he just needs to find her. Liam will stop at nothing to win his girl back, but sometimes, ignorance is bliss, and Liam isn't prepared for Bea's truth. Some aspects of this story may be difficult for listeners.

Summary

Jules Verne achieved a triumph when his imagination, fired by Rudolph Wyss’ The Swiss Family Robinson was impelled to carry the story a step farther in The Castaways of the Flag. An island was ever his spiritual home; and no one was ever happier upon one. The Castaways of the Flag is a satisfactory sequel to The Swiss Family Robinson because it is the production of Jules Verne, an original genius, set in motion by Rudolph Wyss. Wherever The Swiss Family Robinson is heard, The Castaways of the Flag should also be heard.

Il giro del mondo in ottanta giorni

Summary

"Un vero inglese non scherza mai su una cosa seria come una scommessa". "Il giro del mondo in ottanta giorni" è forse il più noto tra i romanzi di Jules Verne, fonte di numerosi adattamenti televisivi e cinematografici.  Il protagonista è un inglese vittoriano di nome Phileas Fogg che, per scommessa con i soci del suo club londinese, si imbarca nell'avventura di fare il giro del mondo in non più di ottanta giorni. Alla base della sua certezza vi è la convinzione tipica dell'Europa del suo tempo di aver domato il mondo, tanto da poter programmare ogni tappa solo sulla base degli orari ferroviari e di navigazione ufficiali. Fogg non è un normale turista, non è interessato alle bellezze dei luoghi che attraversa, ma a raggiungere in modo efficiente il suo obiettivo. Ad affiancarlo nell'impresa il domestico Jean, detto Passepartout, che lo aiuterà a risolvere gli imprevisti che incontrerà nel suo tour.  In una ridda di imprese, a volte tragiche a volte comiche, Fogg alla fine riuscirà a vincere la scommessa, nonostante gli ostacoli che gli verranno opposti di continuo da un pertinace poliziotto inglese che lo insegue per tutto il mondo, convinto che sia l'autore di un grosso furto in banca.

Around the World in 80 Days

Summary

In Around the World in 80 Days, Phileas Fogg rashly bets his companions £20,000 that he can travel around the entire globe in just 80 days - and he is determined not to lose.  Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, the reserved Englishman immediately sets off for Dover, accompanied by his hot-blooded French manservant, Passepartout. Traveling by train, steamship, sailboat, sledge, and even elephant, they must overcome storms, kidnappings, natural disasters, Sioux attacks, and the dogged Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard to win the extraordinary wager.  Combining exploration, adventure, and a thrilling race against time, Around the World in 80 Days gripped audiences upon its publication and remains hugely popular to this day.         Jules Verne was born on February 8, 1828 in Nantes, France. In Paris, Verne studied law but chose to pursue literature. In 1850 his play, Les Pailles Rompues ("The Broken Straws"), was successfully produced at Alexandre Dumas's Theatre Historique. He served as secretary at the Theatre Lyrique (1852-54) and later became a stockbroker but continued writing. He died on March 24, 1905, in Amiens, France, leaving behind a legacy of science fiction works, including Journey to the Center of the Earth.
