    Truly, would you not for less than that make a tour around the world This is the second Verne book I have devoured in two days which have both been accredited four five stars I could end the review at that and I would be content Similar to The Journey to the Centre of the Earth which I read yesterday Verne creates amazingly awesome and complex characters The main protagonist Mr Fogg is an obsessive compulsive routine loving timekeeper who bets his chums at the club that he can travel around the world in 80 days, which a newspaper said was possible if no delays were incurred He is so deep, that so much is beneath the surface of this quiet, content gentleman Never fearing or worrying whatever dilemmas are thrown in his path and always willing to fail the mission to help his friends He is also very good at handling a boat I have to ask does anyone know if he has been in any of Verne s previous stories as it seems like he has an amazing past If he hasn t been present and that is just what is built up by the writing in this book I am speechless His trusty French manservant is amazing too Not for a long time have two characters been so three dimensional and have I truly cared about them so much in 200 or so pages This dude is clever, he worries like he is always rui...

    Well So I do believe I saved a book s life About to be tossed away, being a pariah of the garage sale variety, I not only took it home I READ it Aglow with endearing cliches, this is the source of plenty of adventure stories, many of which are films, comics, etc Verne s imagination is grand the plot is silly and almost kid like But absurd it ain t It is fun exactly because there is a topsy turvy madness to visiting places just to prove a point It is fun because it is rife with interesting observations, factoids, themes...

    Mum, could we travel the world in the same way that Phileas Fogg and Passepartout did The question propels me back in time, about three decades This was the first Jules Verne book I read I carried it home in a heavy school bag, in the darkness after an winter afternoon in the public library I was ten, and I had to fill my long evenings, which started at sun set around half past two I still remember the smell of the book, picked from the Classics for children section, and how I opened it and started reading I knew almost nothing of Victorian England, of travelling to exotic countries, of the honour connected to a wager, of foul play or of religious customs in other cultures or of nature s peculiarities in different geographical areas According to my memory, I finished the story that same evening, and went back to the library the very next day to check out the entire stock of Jules Verne I might be wrong, knowing the strange turns memory takes when something is considered of special importa...

    Genre Adventure, Travel.Publication Date 1873Fun and refreshing A short and a light hearted read, you can go through the book in no time and the 80 days goes by in a jiffy The events in the book are fast paced and so is the journey of Mr Phileas Fogg and Mr Passeportout Is he just a gentleman trying to prove a point or a criminal mastermind on the run Mr Fogg has set up a wager with his rich friends that he anyone can travel the world in 80 days He doesn...

    Around the World in Eighty Days was first published by Jules Verne in 1873, and was introduced to an adoring public as monthly installments Each chapter is thus seen as connected but with its own hooks and cliffhangers The character of Phileas Fogg has become a stoic archetype for too cool operators in books to come in several genres This is fast moving and fun, still a good read over a hundred years later One very interesting aspect of the narrative was the portra...

    1 I hated it 32 years ago and still hate it star.A couple days ago my son and I were talking about boring classroom reading material This reminded me that I never rated this glorious piece of classic literature How anyone would insist that students had to mandatorily read it in the 80s is beyond me, let alone in the 21st century A couple years ago, when my son came home with that little paperback edition and whined about how incre...

    I finished Around the World in 80 Days today and it was even better than I remembered from my childhood Admittedly, the version I had read as a child was the Great Illustrated Classics edition that was, unfortunately, abridged I felt that a reading of the unabridged classic was long overdue Shockingly enough, I still remembered the ending 20 years later.Just the task Phileas Fogg faces in trav...

    The original steampunk adventure Written while it was still called modern Fascinating Seriously, though Jules Verne knows how to write a fast paced adventure with French tomfoolery and English sprats They re buckling down to show other multi millionaires price adjusted what a real wager is, using nothing than a very keen mind ...
