Around the World in 80 Days

164 ratings, 23 reviews

Perhaps the inspiration for the show the Amazing Race, Around the World in 80 Days by Jules Verne is the story of the eccentric Englishman Phileas Fogg and his trusty French valet Passepartout, who, on a bet of 20K pounds, attempt to travel the globe on trains, steamboats and a hot air balloon. Fogg blows most of his fortune in the attempt, but his adventure sets him in England, Paris, the Suez Canal, Egypt, India, Hong Kong, Japan, America, and Ireland.

Every good adventure story needs a villain, thus we have the nosy detective Mr. Fix, who's on their trail, suspecting that Fogg is a bankrobber who's stolen 55K pounds. While in India they pick up the beautiful princess Aouda whom they rescue and take along for the ride. Will Fogg make it back to England in time to win the bet, or will detective Fix catch Fogg as he races around the globe?

Classic adventure, i used google maps to track where he was along the way and these places are very interesting. My favorite part was the train needing to cross a rickety bridge. The take away here is to remain calm and cool through the adersities of life, just like Mr.Fogg.

There is no hot air balloon in this book. That was invented for the film.

I loved this timeless classic. Even though its an old book, it's pretty easy to understand. I would certainly suggest that you read it.

Great story!! Full of excitment and, more than that, plenty of messages for our lives. We have to learn a lot from Mr. Phileas Fogg: serenity, loyalty, friendship, perseverence, and, on top of that, that we have no means to control our lives at all. What makes us happy can come, for instance, in a trip or other enterprise in which we take part for money. Enjoy and learn from it!!!

A nice and exciting story. I read the simplified verision about 30 years ago as a little girl. As an adult, I still enjoyed the adventures of Mr Fogg and his servant. Awesome!

I read this as a child 35 years ago. It was just as good the second time.

Fairly silly story. More interesting for the time and place then the actual adventure. Characters are particularly one dimensional.

Love it, it is really great. I recommend that anyone with adequate stamina reads it!

As Poe is better read in French translation than in English, Verne is horrible in French but good in English. Poe is better in English than Verne is in French, but still....

A fantastic and suspenseful read. Written simple but conceived intricately.
