    1. "Truly, would you not for less than that make a tour around the world?"This is the second Verne book I have devoured in two days which have both been accredited four-five stars. I could end the review at that and I would be content!Similar to The Journey to the Centre of the Earth which I read yesterday - Verne creates amazingly awesome and complex characters. The main protagonist Mr. Fogg is an obsessive-compulsive routine loving timekeeper who bets his chums at the club that he can travel arou [...]

    2. Well So I do believe I saved a book's life. About to be tossed away, being a pariah of the garage sale variety, I not only took it home; I READ it. Aglow with endearing cliches, this is the source of plenty of adventure stories, many of which are films, comics, etc. Verne's imagination is grand & the plot is silly and almost kid-like. But absurd it ain't. It is fun exactly because there is a topsy turvy madness to visiting places just to prove a point. It is fun because it is rife with inter [...]

    3. "Mum, could we travel the world in the same way that Phileas Fogg and Passepartout did?"The question propels me back in time, about three decades. This was the first Jules Verne book I read. I carried it home in a heavy school bag, in the darkness after an winter afternoon in the public library. I was ten, and I had to fill my long evenings, which started at sun set around half past two. I still remember the smell of the book, picked from the "Classics for children" section, and how I opened it [...]

    4. Around the World in Eighty Days was first published by Jules Verne in 1873, and was introduced to an adoring public as monthly installments. Each chapter is thus seen as connected but with its own hooks and cliffhangers. The character of Phileas Fogg has become a stoic archetype for too cool operators in books to come in several genres. This is fast moving and fun, still a good read over a hundred years later. One very interesting aspect of the narrative was the portrait of the American west in [...]

    6. 1 I-hated-it-32-years-ago-and-still-hate-it star.A couple days ago my son and I were talking about boring classroom reading material. This reminded me that I never rated this glorious piece of classic literature. How anyone would insist that students had to mandatorily read it in the 80s is beyond me, let alone in the 21st century. A couple years ago, when my son came home with that little paperback edition and whined about how incredibly uninteresting this "gem" is, I calmed him down by saying [...]

    7. I finished Around the World in 80 Days today and it was even better than I remembered from my childhood. Admittedly, the version I had read as a child was the Great Illustrated Classics edition that was, unfortunately, abridged. I felt that a reading of the unabridged classic was long overdue. Shockingly enough, I still remembered the ending 20 years later.Just the task Phileas Fogg faces in traveling the world in 80 days (in the 19th century) and the obstacles that pop up to delay his travels w [...]

    8. The original steampunk adventure! Written while it was still called modern! Fascinating! :)Seriously, though Jules Verne knows how to write a fast-paced adventure with French tomfoolery and English sprats. They're buckling down to show other multi-millionaires (price adjusted) what a *real* wager is, using nothing more than a very keen mind and a talent for reading multiple departures in the paper. (You had to be there. And you also have to enjoy a period piece, too!)But that's not all, folks! T [...]

    9. Whether or not you've read the novel or watched the movie, Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days is so embedded in Western culture that just about everyone knows the basic plot premise: wealthy and reticent Englishman Phileas Fogg makes gentlemanly bet with his chums that he can travel around the world in 80 days and then sets off with his temperamental French servant to do just that.The idea for the story came from the actual journey of eccentric Bostonian George Francis Train. (Who liked t [...]

    11. Really neat story. It was a fun view into life about a century ago.My only nit with it was with the particular audio book I heard: an annoying afterward that publisher felt he had to append. In it, he explained to us how Mr. Verne's views of other cultures are simply not acceptable to modern people such as ourselves, and although he has transgressed and used stereotypes of different cultures the book still has some value.I found it unfair and unnecessary. Verne's depiction of different cultures [...]

    12. This book brings so much childhood memories back. My dad just to read aloud and retell over and over again Jules Verne's stories and I'm so grateful for that. It ignited my passion for reading a long time ago, as I learned for the first time that I can travel around the world through books and stories, laying in the warm room. I can still remember the vivid images of my imagination that I had as a child listening to this story and feelings will never fade, I still felt quite emotional rereading [...]

    13. Ah ha! So that's the reason for it being specifically 80 days! (view spoiler)[Naaah, I wouldn't want to ruin it for you. (hide spoiler)]

    14. I'm a big fan of adventure and travel novels, so I couldn't stop recommending this wonderful and famous book by Jules Verne. After reading it, I'm sure you will want to make a great trip and took a year off to follow in the footsteps of Phileas Fogg! ;)Spanish version: Soy un gran fan de las novelas de aventuras y viajes, así que no podría dejar de recomendar este maravilloso libro de Julio Verne. Después de leerlo seguro que os entran una ganas enormes de hacer un gran viaje o tomaron un añ [...]

    15. More like five days for me really, though even that is too long for a 250 pages book. Well, it’s an audiobook and I only listened to it while commuting to work.Yes, that is a silly intro but what I meant is that while listening to the book I often felt transported along with Phileas Fogg and crew. This is my first Jules Verne book, normally I prefer to read books in the original language they are written in because with translated books there is always an added layer between the translator and [...]

    16. Tal y como me imaginaba, me ha gustado mucho la historia. El punto fuerte de este libro no son sólo las aventuras de Phileas Fogg y compañía, sino también el hecho de que te vaya describiendo los diferentes puntos de la geografía con sus historias, culturas y tradiciones (sí que es verdad que lo hace de una forma muy somera en tanto que no se detienen prácticamente ningún tiempo en cada sitio). También te ayuda a imaginar cuáles eran los métodos de transporte más utilizados en estas [...]

    17. NOTE: I "read" the audiobook version of this, narrated by the fabulous Jim Dale. I think this definitely added interest to the story, which did begin a bit dull, but ended splendidly! Dale is REMARKABLE at the characterization and voices and I think this tale is especially well suited to being read aloud by someone who can do all the accents! ;-> This version also sometimes plays music in the background, suited to the setting/culture and that was a nice touch and helped set the right tone.4.5 [...]

    18. Ottanta giorni… meno uno ! Un titolo che non ha certo bisogno di presentazioni, questo di Jules Verne, reso ancor più popolare da famose trasposizioni cinematografiche e film d’animazione. La storia è nota: un pacato gentleman inglese, il suo fido domestico francese, un caparbio ispettore di polizia, una scommessa da vincere, un viaggio in apparenza impossibile e monotono che si rivelerà, in realtà, decisamente fattibile e avventuroso.A quasi 150 anni dalla sua pubblicazione, “Il giro [...]

    19. Una aventura con todas las de ley.Me pasé toda la lectura del libro soñando despierta, calculando cuánto llevaría hacer ese recorrido en la actualidad, con los transportes modernos y cuántos días de margen daría eso para que, visitando brevemente cada lugar (tampoco si das la vuelta al mundo da ir de tren en tren y de barco en barco, como en el libro)el viaje no se pase de los 80 días. Mientras soñar sea gratis y el futuro incierto, capaz algún día quién dice. Como encantarme, ¡me e [...]

    20. ممکن است فرصتی که به دنبالش هستیم در آخرین لحظه فرا برسد. این کتاب دقیقا مصداق همین جمله ست که از خود کتاب نوشتم. حکایت بیم و امید با چاشنی تلاش در ماجراجویی‌هایی خونسردانه.داستان شخصی که در پی یه شرط‌بندی تصمیم می‌گیره دور دنیا رو در هشتاد روز طی کنه و در این راه با معماها، ات [...]

    21. أعجبتنى كثيرا شخصية مستر فوج وكذلك خادمه باسبارتو ودفاعه عن سيده فى جميع المواقف وما أعجبنى اكثر هو نهاية الرحلة فهو فى خلال رحلته حول العالم لم يكسب أى شىء ماعدا زوجة جميلة محبة جعلت منه أسعد رجل بين الرجال .ألا يستحق ذلك منه رحلة حول العالم .؟؟

    22. Lo he leído mil veces y nunca me cansaré. De mis favoritos de toda la vidaajesdeunabibliofilaspo

    23. Well that was rather amusing :-) Preferred the second half of the book, faster paced and more escapades!

    24. V, is for Verne3 StarsA true Englishman doesn't joke when he is talking about so serious a thing as a wager.Around the World in 80 Days is a slim little adventurous classic that seems to be telling us so much more than the actual text would suggest. It’s heavily scientific jargon can be a bit much at times, and the adventure itself is interesting more than exciting. The motley cast of characters - a staid Englishman, an excitable French servant, an American cop and an Indian maiden – have su [...]

    25. This was fun to read out loud. The phrasing was strange sometimes, possibly due to this being a translated work, but I thought it only contributed to the book's charm. My older son particularly enjoyed Passepartout's character. We discussed suttee, opium dens, Mormons, and extradition laws, among other things.I confess to being a little disappointed that Fogg's success was mostly due to his wealth. He essentially bribes his way around the world; a poor man couldn't have made it.

    26. The Shrinking World26 August 2016 - Rouen I just noticed a little oddity with in France: they used 'et' instead of 'and' when it tells you that people have liked a review. Mind you, they still use the work 'like' and opposed to 'aimer', which is a little disappointing, though apparently the word like, when used in the context of liking something on Social Media, has been taken onboard by numerous languages as apparently the Germans do something similar. I guess this is further evidence of how E [...]

    27. Definitely classic! My girlfriend bought me this book about two years ago, considering my fondness of adventure story. I wasn't really have a chance to read it at that time, thus I had just recently read it a few days ago–and to my surprise I did "round the world" in merely less than three days.The story sets itself in the middle of 19th century, in the very capital of England, London, where Phileas Fogg and his loyal French servant Passepartout set off on a race to round the world in eighty d [...]

    28. Three nights ago, I could not sleep and was not in the mood to read any of the books I was then, and still am, in the middle of reading. So I decided I pluck one of the classics from the bedside bookshelf and just so happened to pick out an old favourite, Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne.When I was younger, and while most others my age were reading Harry Potter or Twilight, I would read Jules Verne, Mark Twain, Jack London, etc. And I loved them, despite only being able to understa [...]

    29. I just remember that there was a movie adaptation of this classic on early 2000, that casts some of the famous Hollywoord actors such as Jackie Chan and Arnold Schwarzenegger. I never had a chance to see the said movie; and now I'm thinking of watching it to check if they follow the spectacular storyline of this book.I love all the protagonists in this novel — even Detective Fix who later became an ally in Mr. Fogg's mission to travel the world. I'm not very much fond of travelling; but this b [...]
