Verne’s most outrageous “voyage extraordinaire”—a hasty world tour taken up on a gentlemen’s club wager! Mr. Phileas Fogg, master of precision, enters into the strangest wager ever made over the whist table—that he will circle the globe in eighty days.

The news astounds Jean Passepartout, sometime wandering minstrel, bareback rider, funambulist, gymnast and fireman, now turned valet to Mr. Fogg in the expectancy of a quiet and well-regulated life. For the next eighty days, their lives are anything but quiet or well-regulated.

Jules Verne preferred to call himself an author of “voyages extraordinaires.” An extraordinary voyage it is, from Fogg’s announcement to Passepartout that they are to “leave for Dover in ten minutes,” to his triumphant return to the Reform Club at the last second!

    " I finished this short book on the way back from Spain. It was a great read and I kind of identified with the main character, since I'm always on the go. I am not a huge fan of fiction, but this one was good. "

    " This was an instant hit and made Verne famous instantly. Now I see why. I read this book when I was younger, but didn't remember it, and now I admire this piece of fine literature more than ever. Verne used the adventure story format, applied the technology of the time period, and added some obstacles on the way to make a great, and overall interesting story. "

    " Not brilliant writing perhaps, but such an influential book in my childhood - this and The 21 Balloons sparked my interest in travel at an early age. "

    " A nice short read - a rip-roaring adventure filled with drug abuse, human sacrifice and heavy gambling. Reminded me with nostalgia of the old cartoon with Willy Fogg in it :) And it also mentions a port in Ireland called Queenstown, which I just found out was the old name for Cobh, interestingly enough!
