Around the world in eighty days is written by Jules Verne and the book is published in 1873. The story is about traveling across the in eighty days. The protagonist Fogg bets to travel across the world and was taking help of the estimation of dates published in the daily telegraph. The whole plot of the story is submerged with different parts of the world. The author has very neatly narrated to story providing a very smooth flow to the story.

An interesting and adventurous read.
I wrote a high school term paper on this book. I know the teacher wasn't happy about the choice, but I think she let me do it because she thought I was going to fail and wanted to see it...

I loved this book so much when I was a kid. I actually won it in a competition and have never let go of it ever since. It's an absolutely wonderful read and not too hard to get through.

First, I take it as no small task to post my true sentiments about this.
In childhood, (as a good childhood needs) it brought inspiration, dreams, and imagination.
I will owe it a lifetime's joy.

I read this book many years ago and loved it! It is hard to imagine what a big deal it was to travel around the world in those days. I was intrigued that he may not have made it within the promised time, but for the time difference!

I would love to read this one! I only saw the Jackie Chan movie based on it. It was hilarious.

I have read an extract from this classic book, and I would be interested in reading it in the future.

I think that what is amazing also about the author (Jules Verne) is that he had incredible foresight, as he describes many modern technologies when nobody thought they could be created.

I haven't read the book yet but I saw the movie and it compelled me to seek out the book. I must say it is an amazing storyline.

What a wonderful book! I had my family read it after I finished it because I couldn’t put it down! A well-written story full of adventure and suspense that keeps the reader guessing. The journey around the world with Fogg paints a fascinating picture of different cultures and lifestyles across the globe. Loved every minute of it!
