Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Taking up a challenge from his whist partners, a mysterious English gentleman named Phileas Fogg wagers half his fortune and abandons his quiet domestic routine to undertake a daring feat: to circle the globe in a mere 80 days, an achievement unheard of in the Victorian world.

Fogg and Passepartout, his devoted manservant, avail themselves of virtually every known means of transportation in their wild race against time. All the while, a devious detective dogs their every step and introduces fresh obstacles. The resourceful Fogg faces each new trial with unshakable aplomb, through a constantly shifting background of exotic locales — from the jungles of India, a Chinese opium den, and a Japanese circus to a full-throttle train ride under attack by Sioux and a bloodless mutiny aboard a tramp steamer.

The most popular of Jules Verne's fantastic adventure stories, Around the World in Eighty Days first appeared as a newspaper serial in 1872, much to the delight of a world already agog with recent advances in technology. Its enduring blend of comic misadventures and thrilling suspense continues to enchant generations of readers.

Synopsis:

As a result of a wager made at his London club, Phileas Fogg accepts a challenge to make a world tour in no more than 80 days (an incredible feat for anyone living in the Victorian era). Accompanied by his French valet, Passepartout, he sets out in a wild race against time; and with superhuman effort — along with loads of cool reserve in the face of nearly insurmountable obstacles — the resourceful Englishman and his loyal servant circle the globe and turn up at the club shortly before their allotted time expires. A delightful mixture of fantasy, comedy and dazzling suspense, this universally popular novel has thrilled audiences for over 120 years.

Synopsis:

An eccentric Englishman accepts a challenge to circle the globe with unprecedented speed in this fantastic blend of adventure, entertainment and suspense.
