Description

Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit – with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever – he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible. With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him. This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be – That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune.

    What an adventure. This was a serial set around the world. How great each chapter ended, how incredible each turn, how surprising the ending. I recommend this and dutifully say it's the greatest Jules Verne ever written. I'm just amazed it took me this long to read.

    The ending is surprising, and the moral is one of happiness. Just like my friend said- "Whoever said that money couldn't buy you happiness didn't know where to shop." -Mollie Wagnon. O.K, she actually said they didn't know they could buy donuts, but close enough. Obviously, Phileas Fogg knew that by buying tickets and all of that stuff would eventually end up in happiness. O.K, this is a really long review, Ima stop now.

    Nice nook
  • Beware of Junior Edition

    I wanted to download a wonderful classic from the public domain, but opened it to discover the words "junior edition". This implies that the book is abridged rather than the complete original text. Might be good for younger readers, but as an adult, I will keep looking for another version that isn't censored.

    This is a classic I'd not read. I'm so glad I did. It's an excellent story and very well written. I was rooting for Phileas Fogg with the turn of each page!
