Présentation de l'éditeur

Mr. Phileas Fogg lived in 1872 at No.7 Saville Row Burlington Gardens. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention. This Phileas Fogg was a puzzling gentleman about whom little was known except that he was a polished man of the world. (Excerpt)

Biographie de l'auteur

Jules Gabriel Verne (French: 8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French novelist, poet, and playwright best known for his adventure novels and his profound influence on the literary genre of science fiction.

Born to bourgeois parents in the seaport of Nantes, Verne was trained to follow in his father's footsteps as a lawyer, but quit the profession early in life to write for magazines and the stage. His collaboration with the publisher Pierre-Jules Hetzel led to the creation of the Voyages Extraordinaires, a widely popular series of scrupulously researched adventure novels including Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days.

Verne is generally considered a major literary author in France and most of Europe, where he has had a wide influence on the literary avant-garde and on surrealism. His reputation is markedly different in Anglophone regions, where he has often been labeled a writer of genre fiction or children's books, not least because of the highly abridged and altered translations in which his novels are often reprinted.

Verne is the second most-translated author in the world since 1979, between the English-language writers Agatha Christie and William Shakespeare, and probably was the most-translated during the 1960s and 1970s. He is one of the authors sometimes called "The Father of Science Fiction", as are H. G. Wells and Hugo Gernsback. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

Around the World in 80 Days 31 mars 2000
Par Terrance - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book was interesting and I couldn't put it down. Of course, this was written by Jules Verne and was filled with exciting moments. Philleas Fogg, an Englishman, bets 20,000 pounds that he can travel around the world in 80 days with his companion and sevant named Jean Passepartout. After betting this money at the reform club, he departs soon from London and travels all the way around the world. After arriving in many different countries by many different means of transportation, he lands in India and runs into a enchanting young princess who is about to be killed. Fogg and Passepartout come to the rescue and keep moving right along. And soon, they fell in love. But this whole time, there was trouble right behind him. Detective Fix thinks Fogg was a bank robber and this detective is following him everywhere so he can arrest him in London. Passepartout ends up thinking this man is a member of the reform club, and thinks he's trying to stop them from getting there. After many close calls through transportation and an arrest, Fogg arrives. But you'll have to read it yourself to find out what happens. It's a wonderful book and if you haven't read it, it's a good book to read.

A fast, action-packed adventure with both romance and danger 16 octobre 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Before there was any kind of high-speed travel an English gentleman named Phileas Fogg betted 20,000 pounds that he can travel around the world in 80 or less days. He starts his journey in London. On his way he meets a beautiful Indian Princess. Fogg also gets mistaken for a criminal. During his whole journey he has a detective following him trying to arrest him when the warrant arrives. In the book you follow Fogg's adventures through four continents when he is racing against time. The book is fast-paced, action-packed adventure with both romance and danger.
The characters in the story were introduced very well, especially Phileas Fogg. In the beginning of the book you get to know that Fogg is a very private gentleman. He never goes to any social places except the Reform Club. A remarkable thing about Fogg is that his life is centered around the clock. He is very precise and always on time. Every day he follows the exact same schedule. Phileas Fogg does not have a wife or any kids.
The setting of the book was very jumpy. Since Fogg travels through many continents and countries the setting changes all the time. You still feel you know a little bit about every place that he comes to, even if he only stays there for a couple of hours.
When I started reading the book I thought it would be a really good book and it really did meet my standards. I would recommend it to any one who likes adventure and action. Since it is written in so many different versions a person almost any age can read it.

Get your fifth grader to read! 11 janvier 2009
Par mom-o-four - Publié sur
It is tricky to get my 11-year-old boy to read anything but non-fiction. He really got into the Great Illustrated Classics version of A Journey to the Center of the Earth, however, so I got him other Jules Verne titles including Around the World in 80 Days. I think the combination of classic literature, illustrations and adventure tales are very compelling to boys his age. Now he turns the light back on at bedtime to keep reading! I ordered five others in the Great Illustrated Classics series, including The Three Musketeers and Treasure Island.

Loved thi sbook 10 novembre 2009
Par Efrain Morales - Publié sur
this book was a very good book. My 5th grade teacher 5 years ago assigned this book to me for a book report. I didn't want to read it, but I did anyways. I was just interested in reading the first chapter, but read the whole book in a couple of hours. Loved it!

Classic Travel Adventure--Well Worth the Trip! 15 novembre 2010
Par Mrs. Chips - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have read Around the World in 80 Days multiple times. Enjoy meeting the cultured, gentlemanly explorer with his resourceful, friendly valet. With all the delays, how will they arrive in time and prevent total ruin? If you are buying this for a child, find a good illustrated edition. Travel back to a time of gracious living and leisurely transportation. If you enjoy this story, try 21 Balloons by William Pene Dubois.
