    " Translator not named. Quite an amusing and imaginative little work; nevertheless, this flight of whimsy loses a little --- uh --- steam in the middle. The journey across India is fascinating and detailed, with much to interest the reader; furthermore, exciting things happen on this leg of the journey (Fogg and company rescue a woman from involuntary suttee, etc). However, from there, the narrative begins to plod, and the methodical description of America's geography is the low point. Near the end, fortunately, the tale picks up, and the reader is thrown new twists and turns to the plot on every page. And of course it all ends happily. "

    " LOVED this book! What a fantastic adventure and pretty funny too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Triin | 1/29/2014

    " A great read - amusing an easy to read. It must be the first true adventure story I've read literally in ages and it is a great start for a new reading year. I rate it with 4 stars because even though an enjoyable read, when it comes to the literary value of the book, it is missing something. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pat | 1/23/2014

    " I've read this book, listened to it, and watched the movie yet it never gets old :-) The ending was still as exciting as the first time I read it. From another era, the characters are refreshingly honest, willing to sacrifice of themselves, honorable. The grand adventure, full of dangers and setbacks, tests the ingenuity and determination of the unflappable main character, Phileas Fogg, but brings to him some turns even he didn't anticipate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janelle | 1/18/2014

    " In some parts the author went into excessive detail of an object or place but overall a very good book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sergio GRANDE films | 12/30/2013

    " Young people all over the world were introduced to the good practice of reading through books like this one. May it remain in circulation for evermore. "

    " This is not my favorite Verne book, but it's nice to be able to say you have read it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C.C. Kraber | 11/19/2013

    " Although not necessarily greatly inspired or compelling, Around the World in 80 Days is a fun and enjoyable read and has peaked my interest to read 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Teresa in Ohio | 11/16/2013

    " 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 John Cloud | 9/7/2013

    " Fun read and much better than the movie "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Uriel Sandoval | 7/30/2013

    " What a wonderful geography lesson with a twists-and-turns plot! Great read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lianne | 3/14/2012

    " Funnier than I expected! It is quite a short novel in which many things happen. Therefor it felt rushed at times, but the ending was unexpected and I really enjoyed this book! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nika Mansouri Ghiasi | 1/29/2012

    " Why I don't enjoy adventurous books? !! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dexter/Persy | 11/9/2011

    " So much fun! Phileas Fogg has definitely become one of my favorite characters of fiction ever, and Jules Verne proves to be far more interesting than I expected. I will definitely be looking into his other Voyages Extraordinaires. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lorna | 10/2/2011

    " Wasn't sure if I could make through phrases such 'crusty Jew' but found myself getting sucked into the adventure :) read it with view to reading to class, but the language/references to opium might not be too suitable... Not as much seeing the world as I would have liked but a fun period book. "

  • 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. "
