Verne gives painstakingly historically and geographically accurate details throughout the novel, which gives the reader the sense that they are making this famous journey around the world within the hours it takes them to read about it.
If you are one for adventure, travel, history, or simply a good read, you will be more than satisfied to procure a copy of Around the World in Eighty Days.
This timeless book is still wonderful, maybe more so in today's hurry up and tech times! What a way to relax and unwind after a stressful day. This book I found more detailed than the movie and I found myself bookmarking passages to refer to as I will be reading this book from time to time, again and again and again...
Highly recommend this book!
This was a really fun book. I didn't expect to enjoy it nearly as much as I did. I assumed it would be a boring tale of a journey and feel really outdated. I was pleasantly surprised. I felt like I was learning a bit about world travel in days gone by and I really enjoyed the excursions and incidents Fogg and Passerpartout got into (and somehow out of). Passerpartuout was definitely the hero of the tale for me. He seemed to get the most out of the adventure and had the most interactions with local people in ensuring the journey was successful (outside of Fogg just paying money). They definitely had many adventures around the world. So glad I got to this one finally.
I would recommend this book to pretty much everyone. It's a classic adventure story. Who doesn't love a good adventure? The plot is fast-paced, and the dialogue is well-written. The book is also very descriptive, which makes the journey seem very believable.
Phileas is such a great English hero. He never gets flustered or shows worry. He just does what he has to do to succeed. Passpartout, his servant, is a great character, too. He doesn't initially want to travel the world, but he quickly becomes very enthusiastic for the journey.
