Description

Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit – with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever – he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible. With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him. This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be – That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune.

    This book IS a true classic. Even today, it makes a gripping read. Verne isn't given to flowery descriptions, in fact his style is dry, almost. Yet you will still fall in love with his characters, and be totally immersed in his tale. He's a story teller, at heart. Of course, at the time of writing, this tale was almost documentary. It described a fictitious journey by conveyances of the period. Now, it is quaint and old fashioned. But it still makes a rip-roaring read! Find it for free, and you get a trip around the world for nothing !!

    Pablue! as Passepartout says. This book was great! I had to write a book review on this in four weeks. I did it in five days, simply because the story intrigued me so much. The story had twists and turns but I didn't just it for that. No, Apple's simple to use iBooks was great. As this is a classic, it had many words I didn't understand, but the easy to use, simple worded built in dictionary sorted that problem out for me. Parents, if you are bent on getting your children reading a classic, this is the book. It has an exciting plot and will keep them entertained for hours. Try to think of Mr Fogg as Robert Downing Jr. I'm serious it'll help! But I think I thought of Fogg as Robert because I had just read A Study In Scarlet, another fascinating read. Hope this helps! Aurevoir!
  • Well worth the read!

    This book is full and badly paced I love the film but not the book which is most unlike me but that's my opinion To improve the book I would have written less intro and more of a detailed story.
  • Great read!

    I'm not a big reader, in fact I only downloaded this book because it was free, but I am so glad I did. The story is captivating and the characters are perfectly amiable. A 5 star read!
