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 80 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 80 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!

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Falina | 2/19/2014

    " This was mildly entertaining, and at some points it was funny. It was a nice mindless read that I didn't really take anything away with me from. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Saiid Abdul Baqi | 2/19/2014

    " I have read it in English, Arabic, as well as watched the movie in different versions. It is a masterpiece in adventure stories! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 2/10/2014

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

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pavithra Manoharan | 12/27/2013

    " Not becuase of the book-because of a singularly bad publication that focused more on illustrations and had a hell lot of spelling errors leading to a disturbing reading. Must buy a good publication. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pasquale | 12/26/2013

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

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnn | 12/23/2013

    " Jim Dale was fabulous- as always. Book was good- but you had to follow along more than some, because it is detail-rich. Probably better audio than read- our family enjoyed. Ages 8-45. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wes | 12/19/2013

    " Fun little book that is a quick read. Nothing important or really exceptional about it. Just a mildly entertaining read about a guy who makes a bet and tries to go around the world in 80 days. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Miner | 12/10/2013

    " A fun tour of travel in the mid 1800's. I wish I was as unflappable as Phinias Fog. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica Petree | 12/7/2013

    " **This book is not the same edition that I read. "

    " I've read this once as a child, in German, and loved it, so now I'm curious how I'm going to like it in English. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill Keck | 3/12/2013

    " 5 stars not enough. I've been re-reading some of the classics lately via downloads from Google books. This is a true classic. "

    " a nice adventure book.....story of the adventure of Phileas Fogg and Passespartout........the only moral i got from here is: a man is incomplete without a woman..!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Petra E. | 6/9/2012

    " This is a Great book-esp. for being a Jules Vern. :P "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esther | 3/24/2012

    " I read this book when I was studying at high school and I don't remember if I liked it or not. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Luís | 1/10/2012

    " Maybe i need to give it a second change. The movies i have seen all my life about this give me a fun idea of this adventure and the problems they would have to be sucessed. The reading was Ok but kinda boring sometimes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Abrams Lehn | 6/3/2011

    " What a delightful story! So much more enchanting than the story I remember as I child. Very enjoyable read indeed! "

  • 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. "
