Reviews :

Hugh M. Flick, Jr. (KLIATT Review, May 1995 (Vol. 29, No. 3))
Although the idea of circumnavigating the world in 80 days may not be a very exciting concept in our modern world, the story itself is timeless and still captivating. Verne is a master storyteller and the tale read- ily lends itself to an oral presentation. Colacci's semi-voiced reading is excellent as a result of the wide range of accents he uses for the different characters. Category: Fiction Audiobooks. KLIATT Codes: JSA--Recommended for junior and senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 1994, Brilliance, 6 tapes, 6 hrs.; 22cm; sturdy vinyl binder; color cover, brief plot synopsis., $57.25. Ages 12 to adult.
(PUBLISHER: Brilliance Corporation (Grand Haven MI:), PUBLISHED: 1994.)

Kirkus (Kirkus Reviews, 1996)
An entry in The Whole Story series, this is an annotated edition of the 1873 classic, printed on coated stock and enhanced by both atmospheric new paintings and hundreds of postage-stamp-sized 19th-century photos and prints. The explanatory captions (credited to Jean-Pierre Verdet only on the copyright page) accompanying the latter are largely superfluous, although they do add random snippets of historical background to the journey. It's the views of old ships and trains, of costumed natives, and distant ports of call--from Port Said to San Francisco--that evoke the tale's panorama of the exotic, just as the many lurid Verne trading cards and other spinoffs capture the plot's melodramatic highlights. A good way to put both book and story in context for young armchair travelers. 1996, Viking, $23.99; $15.99 paper. © 1996 Kirkus Reviews/VNU eMedia, Inc. All rights reserved.
