Publisher's Summary

On December 27, 1831, the HMS Beagle took sail. Onboard was a young Charles Darwin. He would set out on an adventure that would lead him to question everything about man's place in the world and how humans came to be.

The Voyage of the Beagle is the journal Darwin kept during his travels and where he would note his observations of the extraordinary and natural wonders he encountered, from volcanoes to the coral reefs of Australia. It would be these natural wonders that would lead to him questioning how the different species of the world came to be and eventually to his radical theories, which would one day turn the world upside down with the eventual publication of On the Origins of Species.

Fascinating

An amazing step back in time. I couldn't stop listening. I now use the word "Percepitus" whenever I can.

Narration is a joke

The narration of this book is quite frankly laughable. I can’t make my mind up whether this is a real human with very poor reading ability or machine code. If this is a human, the timing has been altered. this is not a review of the book, I know the book is wonderful but the reading terrible.

Fascinating

It has been fascinating to hear firsthand the very detailed and clear observations of a brilliant naturalist and to see Darwin’s observations which would go on to form the basis of his revolutionary description of the evolution of species by natural selection.
