Jules Verne's career as a novelist began in 1863, when he struck a new vein in fiction - stories that combined popular science and exploration. In Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg rashly bets his companions £20,000 that he can travel around the entire globe in just eighty days - and he is determined not to lose. Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, the reserved Englishman immediately sets off for Dover, accompanied by his hot-blooded French manservant, Passepartout.

    " The only other Verne I have read is 20, 000 Leagues under the Sea, which I thought was a complex book and fairly difficult to read. I saw a link somewhere to Around the World in Eighty Days and decided to give it a go. What a difference! This book is a very quick read and has no real depth to it but I still liked it very much. Phileas Fogg is actually quite boring as a character, but I adored Passepartout. I enjoyed the descriptions of the areas of the world from the Victorian viewpoint and in fact didn't find them nearly as racist and condescending as expected for a book written in this time period. I liked the twist at the end; it was a bit silly of course, but made for a clever ending. "
