Présentation de l'éditeur

Having assured the members of London's exclusive Reform Club that he will circumnavigate the world in 80 days, Fogg - stiff, repressed, English - starts by joining forces with an irrepressible Frenchman, Passepartout, and then with a ravishing Indian beauty, Aouda. Together they slice through jungles, over snowbound passes, even across an entire isthmus - only to get back five minutes late. Fogg faces despair and suicide, but Aouda makes a new man of him, able to
face even the Reform Club again.

Around the World in Eighty Days (1872) contains a strong dose of post-Romantic reality plus extensive borrowing from the author's own Journey to England and Scotland - but not a shred of science fiction. Its modernism lies instead in the experimental literary technique, with parallel plots, a narrator constantly made to look foolish, four characters in search of their own unconscious, and a unique twisting of space and time.

Verne's classic, a bestseller for over a century, has never appeared in a critical edition before. William Butcher's stylish new translation moves as fast and as brilliantly as Fogg's own journey.
ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent translation 5 juin 1999
Par R. D. Allison (dallison@biochem.med.ufl.edu) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is Verne's classic story of the trip of Phileas Fogg (who is obsessed with time), Passeportout, Aouda, and Detective Fix around the world on a wager. The book is filled with beautiful time and space imagery throughout (I would bet that one could write an entire thesis on all the time and space references in the novel). Thirty-three years after its publication, the world first learns of the space/time continuum (although I'm certain Verne was not anticipating Einstein). Fogg bets his fellow club members that he can circumnavigate the globe in a mere eighty days. He leaves immediately with his valet Passeportout and is pursued by Detective Fix, who thinks he is a bank robber. Through many adventures, including the rescue of Aouda from immolation, they all return to London. Interestingly, a few years later, after a number of improvements had been made in railways and roads, a U.S. journalist named Nellie Bly (the pseudonym of Elizabeth Cochrane) decided to attempt to break Fogg's "record." Leaving New York on November 14, 1889, she was able to circumnavigate the globe in 72 days, 6 hours, 11 minutes, and 14 seconds. But, she didn't rescue a Hindu princess! It should be noted, however, that one has to be very careful concerning the translations of this novel. There are some terrible ones being sold. This translation by William Butcher appeared in 1995.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Type is TOO small to enjoy reading... :( 31 août 2013

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I know that reviews on the website really push people toward this The Extraordinary Journeys: Around the World in Eighty Days (Oxford World's Classics) version... but the type is SOOO small that it is virtually unreadable! And although I really appreciate the "extras" offered within this print version, the type is actually smaller than the "Look Inside" feature on Amazon! I just can't enjoy reading it with the small type and the flimsy paperback pages, so I'm afraid this one is going back. :(

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Gavin, thanks for telling people how it ends. 21 mai 2004
Par Chad Deville - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is a wonderful book. In my opinion, one of Verne's top 2 or 3. I absolutely loved 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Then, I read this book... Again, in my opion, Around The World In 80 Days is much, much better. This book has to recieve a 5 star rating. I've scarcly, if ever, read better. 20,000 Leagues was my first Verne book. This was my second. Now, I have read almost every Verne book I have been able to get my hands on. This book keeps you flipping pages late into the night. If you want to read a real classic filled with adventure, humor, and drama. Then I should definetly recommend this book, which, I am doing right now ...read Around The World In 80 Days by Jules Verne, and I promise you, you won't be able to put it down.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Highly enjoyable, great read 19 septembre 2013
Par Jeffrey Hills - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I try to read a wide variety of different books, both old and new, fiction and non-fiction. I bought this as an impulse buy, and couldn't be happier. Trust me, as an avid movie watcher as well, the films depicting this story don't come close to the actual book (when do they ever?). Its a fun read, with a surprising amount of humor most of which is just as applicable today as it was over 140 years ago. I wish I would have discovered this book a long time ago. It would be a great introduction to classic literature for a young reader.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good but smelly! 11 avril 2016

The book came in great condition except that it had been sprayed with some type of cologne. It is strong and annoying to those of us who have allergies. I would have returned the book but we had to use it for my son's literature class and we didn't have time to return it.
