did not like it
bookshelves: the-list
Read in June, 2011

Okay, so technically I've haven't read this one. Not all of it, anyway. To be perfectly honest I got to about the second chapter (I listened to this on audiobook so it's hard to tell - track 9, anyway) and all I could think was, "This is boring. I'm bored now. Still bored."

There are so many other books I want to be reading, and I don't want to force myself to get through this just because it's on The List. So, my apologizes to Mr. Verne, and we'll try again another day.

Also I couldn't stop picturing Steve Coogan as Phileas Fogg and it sort of ruined things for me, which is hardly Verne's fault.

Jonathan Haha, it bothered me too seeing Coogan as I was reading.
