LoveReading View on Around the World in 80 Days

First published in 1873, and actually set in 1872, Jules Verne’s classic adventure still feels fresh and exciting and has lost none of its power to entertain and enthral. The story of Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout and their eastwards race around the globe and against the clock is full of incident, not to mention the romance of travel and the thrill of mankind’s efforts to conquer the world. With frequent full page colour illustrations, including a rather beautiful but useful map, this is a particularly handsome edition and the novel itself is made for serial – or bedtime – reading.  ~ Andrea Reece

Around the World in 80 Days Synopsis

A mysterious gentleman named Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune that he can travel around the world in just eighty days. Accompanied by his hapless servant Passepartout, Fogg sets out on a journey through jungles, deserts and mountains, across oceans and into great dangers.

About Jules Verne

Jules Gabriel Verne (February 8, 1828–March 24, 1905) was a French author and a pioneer of the science-fiction genre. Verne was noted for writing about cosmic, atmospheric, and underwater travel before air travel and submarines were commonplace and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated novelist in the world, according to the Index Translational statistics. Some of his books have also been made into films.
