I'm incredibly sorry that it has taken so long for me to get around to posting. I know I told Lady A. I would post some time ago, but I have been busy. My apologies. Alright, this time I am writing about Around the World in 80 Days, by Jules Verne. I have read this book about four or five times, and I think it just might be one of the best books I have ever read. That's saying a lot. I know that at an earlier time I wrote a post on 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and surprisingly I didn't like it. But this is very different. The story takes place in London, England in 1872. The story begins with a rich gentleman named Phileas Fogg, who lives a uniform life with no variation and no excitement. The story is seen through the eyes of Mr. Fogg's man servant, Passepartout, who has just come to work for him when Mr. Fogg decides to take up a friend on his bet to travel around the world in 80 days. Passepartout and Mr. Fogg set of on their wild adventure, but for some reason are being followed by an English detective named Mr. Fix. We follow them on their journey around the world and see lots of interesting places and people, such as a lovely young lady named Aouda. I personally think this book is amazing! It is fast paced and surprisingly humorous for the type of book it is. The book is filled with adventure, danger, romance, and the obvious anxiety of traveling around the world in 80 days! So in other words if you like adventure and world travel you should definitely pick up a copy of this book... and even if you don't you should read it anyway. If you have any more questions on the subject let me know because I wrote the post quickly and probably left important things out. Thank you for your patience.
