Around the World in 80 Days

Around the World in 80 Days Summary

Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit – with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever – he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible. With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him. This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be – That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune.

Excitement from beginning to end5 star

What an adventure. This was a serial set around the world. How great each chapter ended, how incredible each turn, how surprising the ending. I recommend this and dutifully say it's the greatest Jules Verne ever written. I'm just amazed it took me this long to read.55

OMG worthy

Awesome5 star

The ending is surprising, and the moral is one of happiness. Just like my friend said- "Whoever said that money couldn't buy you happiness didn't know where to shop." -Mollie Wagnon. O.K, she actually said they didn't know they could buy donuts, but close enough. Obviously, Phileas Fogg knew that by buying tickets and all of that stuff would eventually end up in happiness. O.K, this is a really long review, Ima stop now.55
