Around the World in Eighty Days (Paperback)Jules Verne (author)
- 10+ in stock
Bursting with old-fashioned adventure and exotic charm, Verne's globe-trotting epic has become part of the national fabric.
One night in the reform club, Phileas Fogg bets his companions that he can travel across the globe in just eighty days. Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, he immediately sets off for Dover with his astonished valet Passepartout.
Passing through exotic lands and dangerous locations, they seize whatever transportation is at hand - whether train or elephant - overcoming set-backs and always racing against the clock.
