E 1873Fun and refreshing A short and a light hearted read you can go through the book in no time and the 80 days goes by in a jiffy The vents in the book are fa I thoroughly njoyed this book I usually prefer long books with lots of details and drawn out adventures but once in a while it nice to read a shorter story where drawn adventures but once in a while it s nice to read a
shorter story where of things happen This is the third book by Jules Verne I ve read and I loved all story where of things happen This is the third book by Jules Verne I ve read and I loved all of them The story just brought me a lot of joy and it was fun to read it His way of storytelling is simply amazing and ahead of his time There isn t a lot I can say it s just a nice little fun book to read in between I definitely recommend it Truly would you not for less than that make a tour around the worldThis is the second Verne book I have devoured in two days which have both been accredited four five stars I could nd the review at that and I would be contentSimilar to The Journey to the Centre of the Earth which I read yesterday Verne creates amazingly awesome and complex characters The main protagonist Mr Fogg is an obsessive compulsive routine loving timekeeper who bets his chums at the club that he can travel around the world in 80 days which a newspaper said was possible if no delays were incurred He is so deep that so much is beneath the surface of this uiet content gentleman Never fearing or worrying whatever dilemmas are thrown in his path and always willing to fail the mission to help his friends He is also very good at handling a boat I have to ask does anyone know if he has been in any of Verne s previous stories as it seems like he has an amazing past If he hasn t been present and that is just what is built up by the writing in this book I am speechless His trusty French manservant is amazing too Not for a long time have two characters been so three dimensional and have I truly cared about them so much in 200 or so pages This dude is clever he worries like he is always ruining the plan but he is very loyal apt gymnast and sometimes a lifesaverOther characters Fix a stalking policeman and Aouda a rescued Indian damsel are amazingly created colourful characters tooI don t want to say too much of the story but it takes places all over the world London China India Japan HK America Liverpool amongst others Full of amazing set pieces that whilst being gripping always bring a smile to your face Traveling on an lephant to rescue a lady due to be burnt to the death fighting bandits on railway lines in the US are just a couple of these many amazing incidents I was xpecting a scene with a hot air balloon which I see in. • A new table of contents has been included by the publisher •. Well So I do believe I saved a book s life About to be tossed away being a pariah of the garage sale variety I not only took it home I READ it Aglow with The Casa Mono Cookbook endearing cliches this is the source of plenty of adventure stories many of which are films comicstc Verne s imagination is grand the plot is silly and almost kid like But absurd it ain t It is fun xactly because there is a topsy turvy madness to visiting places just to prove a point It is fun because it Is Rife With Interesting rife with interesting factoids themes that in Verne s day were barely in development There is romance the plot is thick with well things happening a ticking clock looms a large shadow and a velocity is masterfully stablished that seems almost incredibly doable the reader wants to xperience this Airplanes suck ass anyway The chance which now seems lost may present itself at the last moment I got this novel from my cousin It s her course book I didn t want to read 1 I hated it 32 years ago and still hate it starA couple days ago my son and I were talking about boring classroom reading material This reminded me that I never rated this glorious piece of classic literature How anyone would insist that students had to mandatorily read it in the 80s is beyond me let alone in the 21st century A couple years ago when my son came home with that little paperback dition and whined about how incredibly uninteresting this gem is I calmed him down by saying that I felt for him because it

UESTION PROPELS ME BACK IN TIMEpropels me back in time three decades This was the first Jules Verne book I read I carried it home in a heavy school bag in the darkness after an winter afternoon in the public library I was ten and I had to fill my long venings which started at sun set around half past two I still remember the smell of the book picked from the Classics for children section and how I opened it and started reading I knew almost nothing of Victorian England of travelling to xotic countries of the honour connected to a wager of foul play or of religious customs in other cultures or of nature s peculiarities in different geographical areas According to my memory I finished the story that same vening and went back to the library the very next day to check out the ntire stock of Jules Verne I might be wrong knowing the strange turns memory takes when something is considered of special impo Around the World in Eighty Days was first published by Jules Verne in 1873 and was introduced to an adoring public as monthly installments Each chapter is thus seen as connected but with its own hooks and cliffhangers The character of Phileas Fogg has become a stoic archetype for too cool operators in books to come in several genres This is fast moving and fun still a good read over a hundred years later One very interesting aspect of the narrative was the portrait of the American west in the 1870s from a EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVE I FINISHED AROUND THE perspective I finished Around the in 80 Days today and it was ven better than I remembered from my childhood Admittedly the version I had read as a child was the Great Illustrated Classics dition that was unfortunately abridged I felt that a reading of the unabridged classic was long overdue Shockingly nough I still remembered the Conflict in Blood ending 20 years laterJust the task Phileas Fogg faces in traveling the world in 80 days in the 19th century and the obstacles that pop up to delay his travels would make for a fabulous story but thelement of a cat and mouse chase really puts this book over the top I highly recommend it for anyone who loves grand adventure stories I can see why Jules Verne is touted as one of the finest French authors He is deserving of all accolades.
