Verne has what seems like a deadpan sense of humor and enjoyment in the trip and the relations among all of the people involved. A useful addition to Glencross's translation are his notes that explain people, places, and events better known in the 1870's than today. And whether "Nous partons dans dix minutes pour Douvres et Calais" or "In ten minutes we leave for Dover and Calais" this trip has remained popular for the past 145 years.
To prove that we can certainly travel, Phileas Fogg starts from London, after betting his entire fortune in favor of his answer. Thus starts journey around the world, which is presented in detail and very well written. But there is a misunderstanding in the police department due to which the gentleman is branded a criminal and on the run from the cops. He is followed by a cop throughout the journey and it gets more and more interesting until the very end where there is a catch.
Totally worth it. One of the best novels out there!
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!
