Around the World in 80 Days: Campfire Classics Line (Campfire Graphic Novels)

Around the World in 80 Days: Campfire Classics Line (Campfire Graphic Novels) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A hair-raising journey starts when a wager is made by Phileas Fogg to travel round the globe in just 80 days. And he wins it too, in the nick of time, but not before surmounting impossible odds and circumventing the strangest of situations, while being hindered at each step by a trailing detective who mistakes him for a bank robber on the run! 

Phileas Fogg's race against time is also his race towards final happiness, for the phlegmatic Victorian, who is moved at nothing, finally confesses to emotions of love and fulfillment after traversing the whole world.

About the Author

Jules Gabriel Verne was born in Nantes, France on February 8, 1828. Over the following 77 years, he became both a prodigious writer and a creator of characters that came to be known throughout the world. His work continues to live on well beyond his death and he is known by many as the father of modern science fiction. His stories revolved around the use of technologies of the day, such as in his novels Five Days in a Balloon and Around the World in Eighty Days. However, what made Verne really stand out were the flights of fancy he took with regard to the potential advances in technology. His fantastic creations were based, in many respects, on a keen understanding of science and the way it was moving forwards.
