In the story, Phileas Fogg of London and his newly employed French valet Passepartout attempt to circumnavigate the world in 80 days on a £20,000 wager (£2,242,900 in 2019) set by his friends at the Reform Club. It is one of Verne's most acclaimed works. The story starts in London on Wednesday, 2 October 1872.

Surprisingly, I've never read this book before. The main character, Phileas Fogg undertakes a journey around the world with his servant, wagering to do it in 80 days. so I decided to fill in the hole in my education, without regards of it being a children's book. Along the way he is considered a robber, rescues a lady from sacrifice in India, sails through many stormy seas, fights indians, crosses collapsing bridges, runs a ship with itself as a fuel and plays a lot of whist.

and sat down to the Pall Mall at twenty minutes before six. Half an hour later several members of the Reform came in and drew up to the fireplace, where a coal fire was steadily burning. What do you ask me about around the world in 80 days?It is a very fantastic,marvelous and adventourous trip of mr. fogg even it is just for an assignment i always borrow it to read and the servant i cant belive what a disaster but i also thank hi because with out him m. ogg couldnt find the girl for him.

The Extraordinary Journeys. Around the World in Eighty Days. Nor is Verne’s reputation for optimistic anticipation at all justified

The Extraordinary Journeys. Nor is Verne’s reputation for optimistic anticipation at all justified. Around the World in Eighty Days contains not a glimmer of science fiction; and very few of the other works contain any radically new technology. Even the early works display self-doubting and nihilistic tendencies; in the intermediate pe-riod, there appear opposing views on the characters’ motives, the events re-ported, and even the narration itself; and these will eventually grow into mordant and distant pastiches that will attack the previous novels and un-dermine the series’ whole being.

For a bet, Phileas Fogg sets out with his servant Passeportout to achieve an incredible journey - from London to Paris, Brindisi, Suez, Bombay, Calcutta, Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco, New York and back to London again, all in just eighty days. There are many alarms and surprises along the way - and a last minute setback that makes all the difference between winning and losing.
Now I know why this is a classic. Thought I'd give some of the classics a try and picked this one. I think they made a Disney movie of it but I never saw that one. So I didn't know what to expect. Was very pleasantly surprised, great characters and an exciting story that had me hooked right from the start and kept me reading late a couple of nights as I had to know how it would turn out. I'll be checking out the author's other works as well.
A much enjoyed classic of Jules Verne. Though, I have found Butcher translations of Verne not the best version of translations. Butcher , in my opinion, does not ‘hold true’ to basic commonly used verbiage. He uses MANY words when he could have and should have used fewer. (In other words, he is long winded). Again, this is just my opinion on That topic. On the whole, a very very good book .
Sadaron above the Gods
This is the original version with a few corrections in grammar or spelling.

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 loved this book so much! Phileas Fogg makes a wager he can travel the world in 80 days. The book follows his journey, which is so fun. Along the way he travels by train, boat, elephant, and more. The dialogue is excellent, and the story is so fun!

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.
Fun, delightful story. I enjoyed this one almost as much as Journey to the Centre of the Earth. It was hard to put the book down.

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.
FYI: There are TWO free public domain editions of this wonderful Jules Verne novel currently available in the Kindle Store. One is under the most common title AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS and is translated by George Makepeace Towle (though his name does not always appear and, in error, is sometimes listed as "anonymous"); the other -- this one -- is under the less common title 'ROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS and is translated by Henry Frith. Both are technically accurate (enough) renderings of Verne's French into the English language, but Towle's version is a tad smoother and easier to read than Frith's whose English syntax tends to be occasionally stilted and choppy. Therefore, I would advise any prospective reader of this public domain freebie by Frith to still download it, but to ALSO download the other free public domain version (that is by Towle but not identified as such); read the first few pages of each and decide which of the two you will wish to continue reading from start to finish. I strongly suspect you will prefer Towle (5-stars) over Frith (4-stars). But whichever one you choose, Verne's tale is terrific, and for more than a few pleasant hours you will find yourself vicariously traveling around the world with Phileas Fogg and Passepartout.
I really like the AmazonClassics series; they are well formatted, making them easy to navigate. My only wish would be that the author's biography was longer. As to whether you'll like the book yourself, that's going to depend on how well you like 19th & 20th century literature. Of all Jules Verne's books, this and Journey To The Center Of The Earth are probably the most liked.
Well I must say that the movie Around the World in 80 Days was a outstanding movie and I have seen it more than five times! However, until recently, I had never read the book. So I decided to turn off the computer, turn off the TV etc, relax with lots of fluffy pillows and read this book. And every page I thoroughly enjoyed, it was so well described that I felt like I was on a trip around the world with them.
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!
