Product Description

From Amazon

Jules Verne aimait le grand spectacle, ses effets de scène et ses coups de théâtre. Et certains de ses livres, Le Tour du monde en 80 jours notamment, sont conçus comme des machines théâtrales. Tout y est calibré, ajusté pour tenir le lecteur en haleine, l'étonner, le distraire ou le prendre à contre-pied. On est en pleine esthétique romantique, celle de Dumas en particulier, avec qui Verne collabora un temps. Mais le Tour du monde c'est aussi l'avènement du monde industriel, le culte de la machine, de l'efficacité, le pointage horaire étendu à une échelle universelle. Culte porté jusqu'à l'outrance, avec un humour féroce, une ironie mordante : Verne n'est pas dupe. Et s'il agite ses personnages comme des marionnettes prises de frénésie, c'est pour, en sourdine, articuler un discours de révolte : Philéas Fogg n'est pas si loin de Némo l'anarchiste, nouveau Faust moderne, et ce texte éblouissant cache bien des profondeurs. --Scarbo --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

A Londres, en 1872, Phileas Fogg engage un pari insensé pour l'époque : faire le tour du monde en quatre-vingts jours. Le détective Fix, persuadé que Fogg est un vulgaire cambrioleur qui fuit la justice, tentera tout pour retarder Phileas et son fidèle Passepartout. De Londres à Shanghaï, en passant par les Etats-Unis, la course nous entraîne à toute allure pour un tour du monde qui n'a rien de touristique... --This text refers to an alternate Mass Market Paperback edition.

J'avais envie de lire le livre qui avais inspirée les dessins tant aimée vue dans mon enfance et j'ai été servi !!!
Petit livre léger qui se lit très rapidement, l'aventure de Phileas Fogg lue par mes yeux d'adulte a été tout aussi enchanteresse que dans mon enfance !!!

There's not much to say about it. The story was great (Jules Verne has a way of writing and portraying his characters that makes you laugh), and the book was delivered very soon. There really was nothing I did not like.

I resisted reading it for a long time, but I now count it among my favourites. C'est beaucoup mieux que j'avais imaginé!

"80 days around the world" is a wonderful trip that will take you north and south, east and west where you will see the colors, hear the anthems and taste the way of life of 1000 different cultures!

Le Tour du Monde en 80 Jours July 29 2003
By OKB - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is an abridged version of the original in a special collection from Hachette entitled Lecture Facile (Easy Reading) and it is 77 pages long - Level 1 out of 3 with 3 being the advanced version. I used it in a level 4 French class and found it to be very useful for teaching purposes. The entire text is written in the present and the compound past so it is a great beginning reader useful to motivate inexperienced readers of French. The story is a delight and the relationships between the characters is what held everyone's attention. It is apparently timeless as all of the students commented that they loved this book. I rate it four stars because I like the full version so much better. But again, this is a great beginning reader.
An excellent read in the original April 2 2014

You can't beat the original of an excellent work like this. In my mind, there are some things lost in translation. For instance, the following passage:

Et d'ailleurs, avec les habitudes d'insouciance des Américains, on peut dire que, quand ils se mettent à être prudents, il y aurait folie à ne pas l'être.

Is translated in English (by American George Makepeace Towle) as:

It may be taken for granted that, rash as the Americans are, when they are prudent there is good reason for it.

This translation is an excellent one that works better in English than a word-for-word translation from the French would. In French though, the sentence reads more like "And besides, with the Americans' tendencies to be so carefree, you could say that when they are prudent it would be crazy not to follow suit."

You really do have to change words to make it flow better in other languages. This is not a critique of the English translation. But doing this makes you lose some of the author's original intent. It's why I really feel the original wins out!

In my mind "there is good reason to be prudent" and "it would be crazy to not be prudent" are not quite the same. The playful American teasing that Jules Verne included gives the text part of its personality, part of its edge; but this is easily watered down in English versions.

Check it out and enjoy it in the words the author himself had written. I was lucky enough to be reading this while in Hong Kong overlooking the port where one of the scenes took place in Verne's mind. One of my favourite ever reading experiences!

Paisir de lire les classiques July 16 2012

C'est un plaisir de lire «électroniquement» les classiques de la littérature française, surtout quand ils sont maintenant accessibles facilement et gratuitement.
Oportunidad de volver a leer clásicos de la literatura francesa Dec 18 2012
By Hugues - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Siempre pensé que parte de la “Vuelta del Mundo en 80 Días” se hacía en globo. (O quizás, me estoy confundiendo con la novela “cinco semanas…”. El problema con estas ediciones gratuitas es que nunca se sabe si están completas o no. Pero hay que reconocer; sin ellas y el Kindle nunca habría vuelto a leer estos clásicos de la literatura francesa. Un excelente libro, por si…
