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.

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!

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!

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.

This story is about an English Gentleman that bet his life savings that he could travle around the world in Eighty Days. He spent alot of time looking at the clock so he's never to early or late just on time. This English Gentleman's name was Phileas Fogg. Phileas Fogg had no wife, children, relatives or close friends. Phileas Fogg was a rich man that was alown with one servent in his lage house. Phileas Fogg's nickname is Fogg. Fogg's going to replace the servent with a different person his name was John Passpartout. The difference between Fogg and Passpartout was Fogg is quiet, and Passpartout was talkative. John's nickname is Passpartout. Every day Fogg woke up at exactly 8:00 and left for a Reform Club at 11:30 a.m.Fogg play's games at the Reform Club in a way they are his friends. One of them bet him to go around the world in 80 days so he did . I thick this was a good book I would give it about 3 stars because if you read the book it's mostly about time,and mouny,and it's not one of the best things I've ever read. Otherwise it was an interesting book.

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.

Around the World in 80 days by: Scott
The novel Around the World in 80 days is a mysterious masterpiece. It is a story that is filled with action and adventure as well as a lot of mystification. Around the World in 80 days has interesting characters that are weird in their own ways. The entire story has 80 different settings in 80 different places. The entire book is based upon a 20,000 pound wager for a bet. The book takes place in in the year 1872. This book is so fascinating that it will keep you turning pages for hours and hours of action filled enjoyment. I recommend this book to everyone who is an action and adventure lover, then you would love this book.

Everyone knows the story - which just shows what a great story it is, and how much of an opportunity Jules Verne let slip. He wasn't a good writer. His prose doesn't sparkle (okay - maybe it does in French), the suspense is never really suspenseful, and one gets little of the flavour of the parts of the world that Fogg passes through. I was told before reading this book that he tends to have national caricatures rather than characters: even so, I was unprepared for the reality. All that can be said in his defense is that he isn't afraid to make his French characters as cartoony as the rest. I enjoyed this book, but only while reading it.

This is simply the best book I have ever read. It's also a fun way to learn geography! From San Fransisco, California to Allahabad, India, follow the adventures of the tranquil, exact, phlegmatic, and laconic Phileas Fogg as, for a bet, he heads around the world in eighty days with his manservant Passapartout. On the way, he rescues the wife of a dead Rajah from an untimely cremation, is pursued by a detective who thinks he is a robber, bribes the crew of the ship Henrietta to mutiny, and still manages never to show emotion! It's a really fun book with adventure, romance, humor, and much more! A must read!
