I was a little disappointed with this book. It contained mostly facts about the route Mr. Fogg took during his journey; mileage travelled, lists of cities passed through, times and amounts ahead or behind in their pursuit of the ultimate goal. This isn’t to say there wasn’t a story. Occasionally, Mr. Fogg would have enough time in one place to have a bit of an adventure, but more likely it was Passepartout who found himself in trouble and in a big need to get out of it.

It is very interesting that I would like a book so much where not a whole lot happens and the characters are incredibly thinly written. Needless to say, I really enjoyed listening to this book. I may have been affected by Jim Dale's storytelling, and that is fine. My son loved it as well. I think the the idea of the book is exciting in and of itself. Even though there isn't much to Phileas Fogg, I really was drawn to his constancy and ability to always remain calm and under control. I found myse ...more

Jules Verne proved to be a fantastic writer in his book, Around The World in 80 days. It was an adventure from the first page to the last page. I never found myself bored from a long conversation or a redundant story line because it never happened. Whenever the story got to a point where the characters seemed to be in the clear from a problem, another obstacle was put in their way and it kept the reader on their toes. Verne has a unique writing style that makes it extremely difficult for the rea ...more

This is a fun book to listen too. When it talked about going though the western US and the Mormons, I saw the great misunderstandings that people have about our religion. They don't know what we believe, but think they do.

I really liked this book. Originally written in French, then translated to English sometime in the mid 1800's I think, so the type of writing is as such. Great story though. Good character development. Would recommend.

I'm not sure which translation I read (it was the free English one on the Gutenberg Project) but I wasn't really engaged by this. I didn't like the characters, save for Passepartout, and the trip didn't have the suspense or creativity I've come to expect from Verne.

It's a light reading book and I enjoyed it very much.
The story is simple enough about a journey around the world in 80 days based on a bet.
But I can already guess how the end would turned out.
