    " I read this as a kid and it's such a hoot reading it now. The language is so much different than those contemporary books I'm usually reading so it's hard to get used to, but this was one of the books that really got me into reading. the world that was imagined and the lands that were visited made my younger self realize that through reading, my travels could be limitless! "

    " gets pretty boring at the end "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dominique Dixon | 1/12/2014

    " This isn't just the story of how a guy went around the world in 80 days. I didn't even know there was a mysterious element to it! So exciting. I skipped over the paragraphs about topography and how trains work. I don't care about that. But I was very interested in the actual plot and all the mishaps that happened along the way. Also, the end was awesome. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Brittany | 1/11/2014

    " I'm sorry to say but I hated this book. I had to read it for English class and I thought it was terrible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/8/2014

    " I really enjoyed it. As the original it's the best and it certainly has something to offer. The book just flowes and it's funny. Just maybe to draw the characters better out. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 1/5/2014

    " This book (much to my surprise) rocked my socks. I listened to the audiobook version, read by Jim Dale. It was really fast-pased and Jules Verne's unsavory depiction of 20th-century Americans is hilarious. Passepartout was my fav! Four stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaylene ÏŸ Alarcon | 1/3/2014

    " Brilliant. A very different and interesting story that's packed with tons of adventure and some science. Yes! I loved how time traveling plays a big role at the end. But, I have to admit that if it wasn't for Passepartout, the story would had been very different. He is the funny character that lights up the whole story and takes it to a higher level. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare P | 12/15/2013

    " Enjoyed this - it was funny and well-paced. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pasquale | 12/5/2013

    " Classicissimo di Giulio Verne da leggere. Sogno ad occhi aperti garantito. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Borgford | 11/23/2013

    " Only my second Verne book. I liked this far better than 20,000 Leagues. A bit more of a solid story line with some interesting side stories. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank | 10/22/2013

    " It was ok. I like how Jules Verne thought of a story where the character traveled to so many amazing, different places. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roger | 10/5/2013

    " One of the best stories I've ever read. Just a fun, wonderful, fast passed story with awesome characters and a great ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zuzana | 1/20/2013

    " Fun read. Much more entertaining than Hector Servadac. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 12/25/2012

    " Pretty funny, and more entertaining than Journey to the Centre of the Earth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alisse | 10/31/2012

    " I loved reading this book. I had read it as a teen and loved it and this was a wonderful friend to read again. I loved how Philias Fogg was so calm throughout the book no matter what circumstances fell upon the different characters. I loved the whole train scene during their time in the USA. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Grace | 9/22/2012

    " Not at all what I had expected. Because I read this book in adulthood I had an idea of what it was going to be already formed in my head since childhood. However, I was not disappointed. The story moves quickly, and is a very easy read with some great mental visuals. I will definitely read it again. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jojo | 6/5/2012

    " The book took me to exotic locations, England, India, china, north Africa and Japan. I was not really impress with Jules Vern's story telling, I feel it is a little to out dated for my taste. I really doubt I will be reading more of his books. But I do see how this book was famous...in its time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Gaspar | 4/10/2012

    " I will never get tired rereading this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrea Aramu | 3/26/2012

    " I have read it in Italian when I was a kid. I would like to re-read it know! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kevin Malone | 12/14/2011

    " Such an exciting and quick-paced novel, and an introduction to one of the most interesting characters of all time. I could have sworn there was going to be a hot air balloon, though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Clara | 10/8/2011

    " I enjoyed reading Verne's interpretations of the different cultures. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karen | 5/22/2011

    " bought a kobo loaded with 100 classics...enjoyed this one. I was surprised! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philip | 5/15/2011

    " I remember enjoying the movie with Pierce Brosnan and Eric Idle as a kid so I was inspired to read the free download on the kindle. It was a fun read and timeless like it could have been written yesterday. A fun adventure! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 F. | 5/14/2011

    " To think what we take for granted now. This was set in a time when we were starting to span the globe. This book would be a good one for a child entering high school. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shelly | 5/11/2011

    " So great. These books are wasted on the young, before we can really appreciate them. Making them required reading for disinterested students does great books a disservice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Les | 5/9/2011

    " Very entertaining book, though I am certain that the author never visited the Salt Lake valley. I found his explanations of Mormons darn funny! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 5/5/2011

    " I read this a long time ago and all I remember is that I liked it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jolene | 5/2/2011

    " Not my type of book. The part about Mormons was crazy. I also listened to this book, or I never would have finished it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 4/29/2011

    " I'm on my Jules Verne kick. I really enjoyed this book. It was fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cameron | 4/28/2011

    " Simple story, simply written, simple characters. A light read, by not Verne´s best by any means. I enjoyed ´Journey to the Center of the Earth´ more than this. Not as fun and as detailed as I expected. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Harmony | 4/27/2011

    " i didnt love it. i took forever to read it. maybe thats why i didnt like it, it seemed to drag on until the end. i liked the ending, a twist. and love too, who doesnt like a fairy tale ending. im wondering if i should watch that movie they made about it. just to compare. "

About the Author
Author Jules Verne

Jules Verne (1828–1905) is considered by many the father of science fiction. Born in Nantes, France, he studied law but turned to writing opera libretti until the 1863 publication of Five Weeks in a Balloon, the first of his Extraordinary Voyages series. Its success encouraged him to produce a number of classic and prophetic science fiction novels, including Journey to the Center of the Earth and Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea. His stories foresaw many scientific and technological developments, including the submarine, television, and space travel.
