Around the World in Eighty Days

by Jules Verne
List(s):"Carp 500"
Category: "Fiction - Adventure"
Year of Publication:1873
Date Read:04/19/1989
Notes:In 1872 mystery-man Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune that he can go around the world in 80 days. With his lively French servant Passepartout, he races against time to do what no man has ever done before. And close on his heels follows Detective Fix of Scotland Yard — determined to arrest Phileas Fogg on a charge of robbery

COMMENTS — There is a lively and well-made movie version with Pierce Brosnan as Fogg and Eric Idle as Passepartout. And if around the world voyages are your thing, read Michael Palin’s Around the World in 80 Days, an account of his trip in Fogg’s footsteps.
My Rating: 6
