Around the World in 80 Days is a classic adventure novel, written by Jules Verne in 1873. In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet, Passepartout, attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager (equal to £1,324,289 or $2,082,576 today) set by his friends at the Reform Club.

Accompanied by Passepartout, he leaves London by train and travels to Egypt via the Suez Canal. On their way to India, they're being watched by a Scotland Yard detective named Fix who has been dispatched from London in search of a bank robber. Because Fogg matches the description of the bank robber, Fix mistakes Fogg for the criminal and follows them everywhere they go.

Their adventure becomes entangled with various events, including rescuing a young Parsi woman, Aouda, and finding her lost relative.

    " As always, Jules Verne does excellent science fiction, albeit small in size. "

    " A solid story, as most "classics" are, Verne spins an entertaining tale. While it's a little mild compared to some of today's thrillers, you can imagine how it was pretty ground breaking stuff in the late nineteenth century. Short, easy to read, I recommend it to fans of classics. "

    " I love the adventure and risk that this book brings; I love how the descriptions of the places they travel are somewhat brief, as it allows the reader to imagine the rest of the details; and I love the composure that Phileas Fogg (main character) maintains throughout the bewildering voyage, for it brings a sense of security to the reader despite the countless obstacles that the characters face. "

    " Clever, witty writing. A bit predictable, but an amusing read nevertheless. "
