Phileas Fogg reist mit seinem unermütlichen und auf sympatische Weise trotteligen Diener, Passpartout, um die Welt, um die Wette eines Gentlemans zu gewinnen. Dabei trifft er auf unterschiedlichste Menschen und Kulturen, was eindrucksvoll und feinfühlig von Jules Verne erzählt wird. Am Ende gewinnt er statt Geld die Liebe und sein Ansehen zurück, war er doch als Bankräuber missverstanden worden.
Insgesamt ein absolut lesenswertes Buch, was auch auf Englisch leicht verständlich ist und durch seine tolle Geschichte den Leser in seinen Bann zieht.

Anfangs dachte ich, was kann man für etwas mehr als € 2 schon bekommen. Aber da es von Jules Verne ist habe ich es gekauft und nicht bereut. Ich bin in der 9. Klasse und meine Englisch-Kenntnissen haben für das Buch gereicht und ich fand es wirklich spitze. Und ein paar Vokabeln habe ich auch dazugelernt. Was will man mehr für das Geld?

This is a lazy attempt to make money out if other people's work. The book appears to have been published without the services of a proofreader. The sentence on the back cover, "Publishers of historical writings from a passed age, which are still as much value today as they were in antiquity," does not make sense. Inside they claim to take the "uppermost" care to faithfully reproduce the original book, but then immediately admit that they can't be sure that there are no mistakes because they have only scanned it. The information about the book and the author are quotes from Wikipedia, of all places. The whole thing just feels thrown together with the least possible effort. Please buy a book that was actually made with some care and respect for the original and its author!

A story with wonderful adventures made possible thanks to the master Phileas Fogg--an English gentleman with a brilliant mind, reticent nature and an equally true character, and his loyal Parisian servant Jean Passepartout--a garrulous, audacious and enthusiastic travel companion. From both men we are given two different perspectives on their travels around the world, which makes this book so wonderful.
Jules Verne paints many scenes with words that are descriptive of the cultures visited by his characters, in a balanced, unbias and respectful way. Jules Verne has an eye for the obvious and the not so obvious. Jules Verne gives the reader a wonderful insight on the many characters he has created without being too wordy. Truly an author with ingenious thinking and a beautiful writing style that I admire.

Hatte mir von der Geschichte an sich, mehr erhofft. Aber ist wohl einfach geschmackssache. Möchte hier auch ungern Spoilern. ;)

Die Qualität des Material des Buches ist in Ordnung. Nicht das beste Papier und der beste Druch, aber total ausreichend für's Lesen bei kleinen Geldbeutel.

This is Verne's classic story of the trip of Phileas Fogg (who is obsessed with time), Passeportout, Aouda, and Detective Fix around the world on a wager. The book is filled with beautiful time and space imagery throughout (I would bet that one could write an entire thesis on all the time and space references in the novel). Thirty-three years after its publication, the world first learns of the space/time continuum (although I'm certain Verne was not anticipating Einstein). Fogg bets his fellow club members that he can circumnavigate the globe in a mere eighty days. He leaves immediately with his valet Passeportout and is pursued by Detective Fix, who thinks he is a bank robber. Through many adventures, including the rescue of Aouda from immolation, they all return to London. Interestingly, a few years later, after a number of improvements had been made in railways and roads, a U.S. journalist named Nellie Bly (the pseudonym of Elizabeth Cochrane) decided to attempt to break Fogg's "record." Leaving New York on November 14, 1889, she was able to circumnavigate the globe in 72 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes, and 14 seconds. But, she didn't rescue a Hindu princess! It should be noted, however, that one has to be very careful concerning the translations of this novel. There are some terrible ones being sold. Perhaps that's the reason for the few poor comments by earlier reviewers. There is an excellent translation by William Butcher that appeared in 1995.

I am thrilled to see this book for free! It is the capturing story of a meticulous bachelor and his French servant taking a trip around the world. But they must accomplish this in 80 days or less- or lose the bet with the club that means so much to them. However, an annoying detective on the wrong track may land the two travelers in jail. To find out if the bet will be lost or won, read on, it's free!

I was heading off to San Antonio for the weekend and needed a book to read on the plane. I arbitrarily grabbed Around the World in 80 Days and it was a good thing. While everyone around me on the plane and at the airport huffed and puffed about delays, I just sat back, like Phileas Fogg, knowing that things would turn out ok. Around the World in 80 Days is not a novel of depth, but thanks to Jules Verne's immense talent for suspense and detail, he created a tale so soothing and entertaining that all you worry about the next time you travel will seem inconsequential. Always carry a copy with you whenever you go somewhere!

I liked the book Around the World in 80 days. Once I sarted reading I could'nt stop. Phileas Fogg was never in one place for too long so it motivated me to read more and more. I wanted to read more and more because I wanted to find out if he reached his destination and win the bet. I recomment it to everyone. It is a faccinating book

Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne is the story of Phileas Fogg and his attempts to circle the globe in 80 days. In Verne's day going around the world in 80 days would have been an incredible feat. Fogg places a wager that he can accomplish his journey using all the best technology of the day, including locomotives, steam boats, and hot-air balloons.
This is a Verne story that is more heavy on the adventure instead of the science. It's not quite in the realm of "A Journey to the Center of the Earth" in those terms; but, it is close. Fogg is an entertaining character that is as devilish as he is daring.
It can really take you back to an era before instantaneous communications and jet travel when the world was not quite so small. Verne also gives a good account of the many civilizations that Fogg encounters on his journey. These are civilizations that have all but vanished from the earth with the colonial policies of 19th and 20th century powers that sought to homogenize the lands they conquered. Around the World is a good book for the Verne fan and a good place to start for the Verne newcomer.
