Jules Verne

Around the World in 80 Days

Jules Verne’s most-acclaimed novel remains a cultural cornerstone to this day. The story of Phileas Fogg’s spectacular journey by then-novel technologies is a fast-paced, colorful, and thoroughly enjoyable portrait of the British empire at the height of its power. Originally published as a serial so believable that readers at the time placed bets on whether Fogg would succeed or not, Verne’s adventure epic continues to inspire travelers and adventurers to this day.

    This great writer's novel, Jules Verne, is like a film featuring an 80's film by Arnold Schwarzenegger, or a generally simple monster film. This story is all about adventure. When it's necessary, we are shown and the rest is fun and exciting.

Quotes

He was the most deliberate person in the world, yet always reached his destination at the exact moment.
