One ill-fated evening at the Reform Club, 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-establised routine of his daily life, the reserved Englishman immediately sets off for Dover, accompanied by his hot-blooded French manservant Passepartout. Travelling by train, steamship, sailing boat, sledge, and even elephant, they must overcome storms, kidnappings, natural disasters, Sioux attacks, and the dogged Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard, who believes Fogg has robbed the Bank of England, to win the extraordinary wager.

Around the World in 80 Days gripped audiences on its publication and remains hugely popular, combining exploration, adventure and a thrilling race against time.

    " Around the world in 80days, mostly boring with flat characters and a bollywoodish dramatic climax which saves the reader from entire dissappointment.. maybe because it's a translation from the original french version by Jules to English. "
