A fast paced adventure about a man who takes on a bet that he can circumnavigate the world, starting and ending in London, within 80 days. It's not as technical as some of Verne's other Extraordinary Voyages, but that could also be the translation. Some translators of Verne's work take rather large liberties. I quite enjoyed this book. It was an exciting read! ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
Mr. Phileas Fogg lived, in 1872, at No. 7, Saville Row, Burlington Gardens, the house in which Sheridan died in 1814.
In the year 1872, No. 7 Savile Row, Burlington Gardens -- the house where Sheridan died in 1814 -- was occupied by Phileas Fogg, Esq.
(William Butcher's translation).
In the year 1872, the house at number 7 Savile Row, Burlington Gardens - the house in which Sheridan died in 1814 - was lived in by Phileas Fogg, Esq., one of the oddest and most striking members of the Reform Club, even though he seemed determined to avoid doing anything that might draw attention to himself.
(Penguin 2004 edition translation)
