    " Oh I mean, Passepartout, what fun! Elephants and opium, oh my! But it was a little too in the style of Phileas Fogg himself (with a lot of focus on timing of ships and such) for my taste. Not to mention all the Rule Britannia colonialist stuff, which is always jarring, no matter how much you know it's of its time. "

    " it doesn't appeal to me ,, i think it's a good way to waste your time "

    " I had to read this book in class this past year and I did not enjoy myself at all. I often day dreamed and went off track because, for me, the writing was hard to understand. However, I thought the very end was actually really fascinating and a good little twist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sundeep Naidu | 1/12/2014

    " jules is the best.. just love his books... hats off to 'the father of science fiction'... "

    " started off well, then I got bored. might go back to it at future date. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mark Ray | 12/27/2013

    " Jules Verne was one of the first and still one of the best Science Fiction/ Adventure writers of all time. "

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

    " I should be embarrassed that this thin book took me more than a month to read - especially since I really did like it. I knew the basic story before I ever got into the book. I thought the book would be much more difficult a read (try Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea). An enjoyable read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarezh Zyad | 11/14/2013

    " long ago i have finished it but still it make me smile and more motivate to give a decision and be sure that you can do any thing if u belibe that u can do .... :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Nesbitt | 11/12/2013

    " Very entertaining good old fashioned adventure. Nothing fancy or incredibly inciteful, just fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shorouk sebaa | 9/28/2013

    " i liked the movie better :)))) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael Moseley | 8/21/2013

    " Difficult to believe this classic Victorian tale was actually written by a Frenchman. Was he taking the piss? Such an adventure over 100 years ago. Trains, ships and boats but not the balloon of the film. A book that everyone should read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Mcsweeney | 8/16/2013

    " Loved it when I was younger, I don't think i@d enjoy it so much now but I was amazed! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moonchyme | 4/18/2013

    " The whole time I was thinking "Man, this guy is all class and no emotion!" Little did I know what would turn the whole book around on the very last page ^_~. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Grainger | 2/14/2013

    " Around the World in Eighty Days is a non stop action book which follows Phileas Fogg and this manservant on a journey around the world. This is a fun little quick read which doesn't require much concentration. I would recommend for anyone who likes reading classics! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Reese | 1/27/2013

    " This is a fun adventure story. It would be even more fun if Phileas Fogg wasn't so effing glorified. And if you'd get to know more about the countries they travelled. And if there was a hot air balloon. Oh, well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Signoranimal | 12/10/2012

    " Lovely book, never dull, always kept me at the edge of my seat "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chaitanya Reddy | 10/13/2012

    " Classic. A must read for all the adventure buffs out there. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa in Ohio | 9/2/2012

    " I never read this in high school, actually I manage to skim or cliff notes most classics in english class My son asked me to read this with him and after about 30 pages of very descriptive language it settled into a nice action story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby | 12/4/2011

    " 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 Jacqui Jacoby | 9/17/2011

    " This was the most fun Jules Verne I have so far! Great characters and engaging to story. Highly recommend. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 8/8/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicoleta | 7/18/2011

    " O carte superba pentru adolescenti. Mie mi-a placut foarte mult si am savurat fiecare pagina. Daca cineva vrea o carte buna de aventuri asta cu siguranta se califica. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Allison | 6/22/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. Surprisingly entertaining although it did drag at one or two places. Overall, loved it. "

  • 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.
