Présentation de l'éditeur

AROUND THE WORLD IN EIGHTY DAYS, a noted romance by Jules Verne. Phineas Fogg, an English gentleman, wagers that a man can travel around the world in 80 days. He wins his wager after a series of exciting adventures. Many years have elapsed since Fogg, as Jules Verne's mythical hero, accomplished the supposedly impossible task of circumnavigating the globe in 80 days, a feat which won for him a wager of $100,000 and incidentally a wife. Since that time, however, so many improvements have been made in methods of transportation, so many new routes — like that of the Trans-Siberian Railway — have been completed that Mr. Fogg's once remarkable trip now appears in the light of an extremely commonplace achievement. In fact the person who, to-day, could not travel around the world in less than 80 days would be regarded as a very inexperienced globe-trotter. The first serious attempt to lower Jules Verne's imaginary record was made in 1890, when Miss Nellie BIy, who represented the New York World, made the trip around the world against time. She was followed by the late George Francis Train, and both succeeded in accomplishing the tour in less than 70 days. Ten years later Mr. George Griffith, of Chiswick, England, established a new record at 64 days, but this record stood for less than a year, it having been reduced, in 1901, to 60 days and few hours, by Charles C. Fitzmorris, who made the trip at the request of Hearst's Chicago American. The success of Fitzmorris was the means of inspiring many persons to participate in this unique form of record breaking, among the contestants there being several journalists, the representatives of European and Canadian papers. All attempts to lower this last record were unsuccessful, however, until December 1903, when Mr. James Willis Sayre of Seattle, Wash., earned the honor for record breaking by girdling the globe in 54 days, 9 hours and 42 minutes, an achievement that lowered the Fitzmorris record by more than six days and three hours. On 17 July 1911, Andre jager-Schmidt, a reporter on Excelsior, a Paris daily newspaper, left that city under instructions to lower this record. The trip was made without an accident or any unnecessary delay and the traveler arrived in Paris on 26 August, having succeeded in establishing a new record in girdling the earth. M. Jager-Schmidt's official time was 39 days, 19 hours, 43 minutes and 37 4/5 seconds but this time would have been lowered to the extent of a few hours if he had not stopped at Cherbourg to attend a reception.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Around the World in 80 Days is a timeless book. A SUPERB MUST HAVE BOOK! 19 mars 2014
Par Daisy S - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Well I must say that the movie Around the World in 80 Days was a outstanding movie and I have seen it more than five times! However, until recently, I had never read the book. So I decided to turn off the computer, turn off the TV etc, relax with lots of fluffy pillows and read this book. And every page I thoroughly enjoyed, it was so well described that I felt like I was on a trip around the world with them.
This timeless book is still wonderful, maybe more so in today's hurry up and tech times! What a way to relax and unwind after a stressful day. This book I found more detailed than the movie and I found myself bookmarking passages to refer to as I will be reading this book from time to time, again and again and again...

Highly recommend this book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stands the Test of Time! 25 février 2015
Par Obi Wan - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book really holds up from my youth. When it was written, circumnavigation of the globe was a HUGE endeavor at any speed. Doing it in 80 days was a ridiculous notion. So the book was a pure action novel in it's time.

Today I can completely circle the Earth in 24 hours if really wanted to for the cost of a few plane tickets that are publicly available. (Or I could join the space program and circle the entire planet in a little under 90 minutes) So in today's society, Around The World in 80 Days isn't exactly an action story.

But it's still a GREAT adventure story! As a kid I read this book and thought it was an amazing adventure. Of course back then just going around the world at any speed sounded amazing. As a kid I barely knew what other States were, much less the other side of the world. When I re-read this recently as an adult, I was worried that I'd destroy my memory of the novel by seeing it in a less interesting light now that I've actually been all over the world.

I didn't. It was just an amazing as the first time I read it as a child.

Some of Jules Verne's books hold up like that over the years. Some don't. He was one of the most creative futurists of his day. But now the things he saw as existing in the distant future are things that we read about in history books. Sadly, the passage of time dulls some of Verne's amazing works. But Around The World in 80 Days absolutely stands the test of time!

Its a unique and amazing story about a legendary wager on a very specific question: Can a man travel around the world in under 80 days?
To prove that we can certainly travel, Phileas Fogg starts from London, after betting his entire fortune in favor of his answer. Thus starts journey around the world, which is presented in detail and very well written. But there is a misunderstanding in the police department due to which the gentleman is branded a criminal and on the run from the cops. He is followed by a cop throughout the journey and it gets more and more interesting until the very end where there is a catch.
Totally worth it. One of the best novels out there!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The game is asea, and more 21 avril 2017

The translation by Michael Glencross looks accurate and thorough and, for those who know something of French, there are slight and instructive differences. For example, M. Verne includes an explanatory sentence about Mme Tussaud's wax museum ("Il convient de dire ici que les « bonshommes » de Mme Tussaud sont des figures de cire, fort visitées à Londres, et auxquelles il ne manque vraiment que la parole.") that Mr. Glencross does not include, and others ("Passepartout n'était point un de ces Frontins ou Mascarilles") that are in an English equivalent ("Passpartout was not one of those cheeky or scheming servants").

Verne has what seems like a deadpan sense of humor and enjoyment in the trip and the relations among all of the people involved. A useful addition to Glencross's translation are his notes that explain people, places, and events better known in the 1870's than today. And whether "Nous partons dans dix minutes pour Douvres et Calais" or "In ten minutes we leave for Dover and Calais" this trip has remained popular for the past 145 years.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I see now why this is a classic! 7 novembre 2015

I see now why this is a classic! This was my first time reading this spectacular novel, and having not seen the film, I was thrilled with Mr. Doug's journey around the world.
Verne gives painstakingly historically and geographically accurate details throughout the novel, which gives the reader the sense that they are making this famous journey around the world within the hours it takes them to read about it.
If you are one for adventure, travel, history, or simply a good read, you will be more than satisfied to procure a copy of Around the World in Eighty Days.
