Around the World in 80 Days

Jules Verne

 

 

 

jules Verne, the enormously popular French author, is known as one of the founding fathers of science fiction. Verne's stories, written for adolescents as well as adults, caught the enterprising spirit of the nineteenth century, its uncritical fascination about scientific progress and inventions. His works were often written in the form of a travel book, which took the readers on a voyage to the moon in From the Earth to the Moon (1865) or to another direction as in A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864). Many of Verne's ideas have been hailed as prophetic. Around the World in Eighty Days (1873), a classic adventure story, is among his best-known books.

Around the World in Eighty Days is the story of Phileas Fogg and his quest to complete the tour of the world in eighty days, in order to win a gentleman's wager. Accompanied by his loyal servant Passepartout, Fogg embarks on a journey in which he is followed by Detective Fix who suspects him to be a bank robber. Fogg's journey takes him through the Suez, Bombay, Hong Kong, San Francisco and New York. The journey unfolds, breathlessly, full of adventure, eccentricities and surprises.
