9780140449068: Around the World in Eighty Days (Penguin Classics)

One night in the reform club, Phileas Fogg bets his companions that he can travel across the globe in just eighty days. Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, he immediately sets off for Dover with his astonished valet Passepartout. Passing through exotic lands and dangerous locations, they seize whatever transportation is at hand - whether train or elephant - overcoming set-backs and always racing against the clock.

Review:

"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived."--Arthur C. Clarke

From the Back Cover:

First serialized in a French newspaper in 1872, this is perhaps the most beloved and the most enduring of Jules Verne's novels of imaginative escapades. When Englishman Phileas Fogg takes on a bet of £20,000 from his gentlemen's club that he cannot circumnavigate the globe in 80 days or less--an unheard-of feat in the Victorian world--he sets off, with his manservant Passepartout at his side, on an series of exotic exploits and comic misadventures (Fogg is mistaken for a thief on the run by a pursuing Scotland Yard detective). An inspiration to generations of writers and readers, Verne's fiction remains compelling and thoroughly enjoyable today. French author JULES GABRIEL VERNE (1828-1905) is considered the father of modern science fiction. Among his many groundbreaking books are Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1870)
