Publisher's Summary

Phileas Fogg, a gentleman of stringent and inflexible habits, proposes that he can circumvent the globe in 80 days. He wagers half of his fortune to this effect. But when a high-profile bank robbery occurs, the dogged Detective Fix is convinced that Mr. Fogg is an audacious bank robber and that his entire "gentleman's wager" is a charade. Thus begins a wild battle of cat and mouse that takes the clever combatants around the world.

One of my Favorites! What an adventure!

My family read this together when I was 10 and it is one of the of those books that has been referenced and talked about amongst us ever since. This was the first time I've read (or listened I guess) it since then and it is just as good as I remembered!

So much fun going on the journey around the world filled with so many crazy happenings and adventures.

Thoroughly entertaining

A thoroughly entertaining tale, Around the World in 80 Days, will amuse and delight with its subject matter and its engaging characters. BJ Harrison does an outstanding job of narrating with just enough tongue-in-cheek tonality that we get the full experience of Jules Verne’s sense of humor. Highly recommended!

A Classic

It might have been awesome to experience so many different cultures and the different kind of adventures plausible for each location and high tech kinds of transportation for the time. But for that time. Not so much today. Maybe the French edition is better.
