Surprisingly, I've never read this book before. The main character, Phileas Fogg undertakes a journey around the world with his servant, wagering to do it in 80 days. so I decided to fill in the hole in my education, without regards of it being a children's book. Along the way he is considered a robber, rescues a lady from sacrifice in India, sails through many stormy seas, fights indians, crosses collapsing bridges, runs a ship with itself as a fuel and plays a lot of whist.

Of all Jules Verne's books, this and Journey To The Center Of The Earth are probably the most liked. Well I must say that the movie Around the World in 80 Days was a outstanding movie and I have seen it more than five times! However, until recently, I had never read the book
Of all Jules Verne's books, this and Journey To The Center Of The Earth are probably the most liked. One person found this helpful. Well I must say that the movie Around the World in 80 Days was a outstanding movie and I have seen it more than five times! However, until recently, I had never read the book. So I decided to turn off the computer, turn off the TV etc, relax with lots of fluffy pillows and read this book. And every page I thoroughly enjoyed, it was so well described that I felt like I was on a trip around the world with them. This timeless book is still wonderful, maybe more so in today's hurry up and tech times!
The Extraordinary Journeys. Around the World in Eighty Days. Nor is Verne’s reputation for optimistic anticipation at all justified
The Extraordinary Journeys. Nor is Verne’s reputation for optimistic anticipation at all justified. Around the World in Eighty Days contains not a glimmer of science fiction; and very few of the other works contain any radically new technology. Even the early works display self-doubting and nihilistic tendencies; in the intermediate pe-riod, there appear opposing views on the characters’ motives, the events re-ported, and even the narration itself; and these will eventually grow into mordant and distant pastiches that will attack the previous novels and un-dermine the series’ whole being.
