"Around the World in Eighty Days", published originally as a newspaper serial in 1872 and released as a book the following year, was well received in both formats. Its hero, Phileas Fogg, is a leisured but taciturn Londoner of such mathematically precise habits that he has fired his servant for bringing him shaving water two degrees too cold. Over a game of cards, Fogg wagers twenty thousand pounds that he can travel around the world in eighty days or less. What follows is a headlong adventure full of trains, ships, elephants, and wind sledges, not to mention human sacrifice, duels, and Indian attacks. A successful combination of modern speed and period quaintness, "Around the World in Eighty Days" has become a steam-driven classic.

“Around the World in Eighty Days”

One of my all time favourite reads; about as comforting as a book can get when you are travveling or its raining cats and dogs outside. Sit back, relax and follow the wonderful cast of eccentric characters in Jules... More
