Around the World in Eighty Days is a rip-roaring tale of adventure on a global scale. On a high-stakes bet from his friends, wealthy Phileas Fogg enlists his trusty butler Passepartout to travel the railroads around the world. The goal? To return to London in no more than eighty days.

Easy to Read
This was an easy to read book but it didn't keep my interest, totally. I kept reading it to see what happened but was kind of glad when I finished it.

A fun read
I really enjoyed this tale of adventure in a literally globe-trotting journey. It is quite a bit of fun waiting to see if Fogg will remain inperturbable, and how many misadventures poor Passepartout will endure. A classic, and for good reason!
