Format: Paperback
I discovered why this book is a classic. The characters are fascinating, the situation is absurd, and craft is supernal. It is a great classic, and a wonderful way to get into Jules Vern's other writings.
I think the key to the book is not just the absurd bet that Fogg makes, but that Verne adds to the deadline tension by having this idiot Inspector Fix trail Fogg on his voyage around the world. Fogg not only has to combat the perils of global travel in the 1890's, but also Fix as he sabotages Fogg's journey. That is genius.
This book is all plot: you are whooshed along for the ride and it never eases up. The Chapters are short, adding to the sense of speed. The only thing offensive in this book are some of the stereotypes: Asians, Indians, Yankee Americans and Mormons are all misrepresented in this book. Alas, that is the bigotry of the Victorian era that somehow still lingers.
This is a great book for your boy who hates Jane Austin novels.

Format: Paperback
Around the World in 80 Days is another good work from the author of 20,000 Leagues under the Sea and Journey to the Center of the Earth.
Phileas Fogg is member of the London Reform Club. He makes a bet that he can travel around the world in 80 days. He leaves immediately along with his servant Passepartout. A short time before Fogg left on his "Tour of the world", a bank robbery occurred at the bank of England. Police Detective Fix mistakenly believes that, because his description is so close to the robber's, that Phileas Fogg was the robber.
What will the trip gain Mr. Fogg? Will he make it in 80 days? Will Fix learn his blunder or cost Fogg the wager? Find out by reading for yourself.

Awesome book Dec 10 2012
By Todd G. Olson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is great! We read it together with our mom. Great book for all ages. It satisfied a nine year old, twelve year old and an adult. We loved all the exciting twists and turns, and the characters are very interesting and funny. Jules Verne is a great writer, and we highly recommend that you read this book.

Good book May 10 2014
By Amazon buyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dover Thrift Editions are a great low-cost book. Being a thrifty edition, the words are very small and they tried to cram lots of words onto one page so there's hardly even a margin. If you are wanting to add a high quality book to your home library then this is not the book for you. If you want to read it once and toss, then this would be a great version to get.
