He can name a lot of countries on a world map and he knows the most incredible things about them. He probably travelled at one time, but some people insist that he has not left London for many years. Maybe he only travels in his head.

It is one of Verne's most acclaimed works. The story starts in London on Wednesday, 2 October 1872.

JULES VERNE was born in Nantes in 1828, the eldest of five children in a pros-perous family of French, Breton, and Scottish ancestry. His early years were happy, apart from an unfulfilled passion for his cousin Caroline. Literature always attracted him and while taking a law degree in Paris he wrote a num-ber of plays. Eight of the books ap-peared after his death in 1905 - although they were in fact written partly by his son Michel. Translated with an Introduction and Notes by WILLIAM BUTCHER.

Yes we do get some of Jules Verne constant obsession with pointing out where his actors are in regard to the world map, but not as bad as many (what 20,000 leagues under the Sea seemed to be nothing but endless Latitudes, Longitudes and depths) so we get a story that is a good read.

Now I know why this is a classic. Thought I'd give some of the classics a try and picked this one. I think they made a Disney movie of it but I never saw that one. So I didn't know what to expect. Was very pleasantly surprised, great characters and an exciting story that had me hooked right from the start and kept me reading late a couple of nights as I had to know how it would turn out. I'll be checking out the author's other works as well.

A much enjoyed classic of Jules Verne. Though, I have found Butcher translations of Verne not the best version of translations. Butcher , in my opinion, does not ‘hold true’ to basic commonly used verbiage. He uses MANY words when he could have and should have used fewer. (In other words, he is long winded). Again, this is just my opinion on That topic. On the whole, a very very good book .

This is the original version with a few corrections in grammar or spelling.

I bought this to compare it to Michael Todd's movie of the same name. An informational video I had seen about the movie made some extravagant claims, so I bought this to check out those claims. Todd had wanted the cast as you see them because they fit Verne's description. The book proved that. Todd had wanted most everything that the book has (all of the story line). It does. Then on top of that, the story is truly wonderful. It is upliftting and fun at times, and harrowing and suspenseful at others. I was very pleased with this book. You will be too, especiallyu if you've seen Michael Todd's production of this in his 1950s movie. Hell. Buy this book and buy the movie too. Both are delightfully entertaining!

I loved this book so much! Phileas Fogg makes a wager he can travel the world in 80 days. The book follows his journey, which is so fun. Along the way he travels by train, boat, elephant, and more. The dialogue is excellent, and the story is so fun!

I would recommend this book to pretty much everyone. It's a classic adventure story. Who doesn't love a good adventure? The plot is fast-paced, and the dialogue is well-written. The book is also very descriptive, which makes the journey seem very believable.

Phileas is such a great English hero. He never gets flustered or shows worry. He just does what he has to do to succeed. Passpartout, his servant, is a great character, too. He doesn't initially want to travel the world, but he quickly becomes very enthusiastic for the journey.

Fun, delightful story. I enjoyed this one almost as much as Journey to the Centre of the Earth. It was hard to put the book down.

Let me mention that ever since I was a kid I had thought that they went around the world in a hot air balloon. Despite the cover of the Bantam edition (the one I bought and read, which is a good translation), nowhere during their trip do they ride in a hot air balloon.

FYI: There are TWO free public domain editions of this wonderful Jules Verne novel currently available in the Kindle Store. One is under the most common title AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS and is translated by George Makepeace Towle (though his name does not always appear and, in error, is sometimes listed as "anonymous"); the other -- this one -- is under the less common title 'ROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS and is translated by Henry Frith. Both are technically accurate (enough) renderings of Verne's French into the English language, but Towle's version is a tad smoother and easier to read than Frith's whose English syntax tends to be occasionally stilted and choppy. Therefore, I would advise any prospective reader of this public domain freebie by Frith to still download it, but to ALSO download the other free public domain version (that is by Towle but not identified as such); read the first few pages of each and decide which of the two you will wish to continue reading from start to finish. I strongly suspect you will prefer Towle (5-stars) over Frith (4-stars). But whichever one you choose, Verne's tale is terrific, and for more than a few pleasant hours you will find yourself vicariously traveling around the world with Phileas Fogg and Passepartout.

I really like the AmazonClassics series; they are well formatted, making them easy to navigate. My only wish would be that the author's biography was longer. As to whether you'll like the book yourself, that's going to depend on how well you like 19th & 20th century literature. Of all Jules Verne's books, this and Journey To The Center Of The Earth are probably the most liked.
Well I must say that the movie Around the World in 80 Days was a outstanding movie and I have seen it more than five times! However, until recently, I had never read the book. So I decided to turn off the computer, turn off the TV etc, relax with lots of fluffy pillows and read this book. And every page I thoroughly enjoyed, it was so well described that I felt like I was on a trip around the world with them.
This timeless book is still wonderful, maybe more so in today's hurry up and tech times! What a way to relax and unwind after a stressful day. This book I found more detailed than the movie and I found myself bookmarking passages to refer to as I will be reading this book from time to time, again and again and again...

Highly recommend this book!
