I bought this to compare it to Michael Todd's movie of the same name. An informational video I had seen about the movie made some extravagant claims, so I bought this to check out those claims. Todd had wanted the cast as you see them because they fit Verne's description. The book proved that. Todd had wanted most everything that the book has (all of the story line). It does. Then on top of that, the story is truly wonderful. It is upliftting and fun at times, and harrowing and suspenseful at others. I was very pleased with this book. You will be too, especiallyu if you've seen Michael Todd's production of this in his 1950s movie. Hell. Buy this book and buy the movie too. Both are delightfully entertaining!
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.
Let me mention that ever since I was a kid I had thought that they went around the world in a hot air balloon. Despite the cover of the Bantam edition (the one I bought and read, which is a good translation), nowhere during their trip do they ride in a hot air balloon.
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!
