Around the World in Eighty Days has been a bestseller for over a century, but it has never before appeared in a critical edition. While most translations misread or even abridge the original, this stylish version is completely true to Verne's classic, moving as fast and as brilliantly as Phineas Fogg's own race against time. Around the World in Eighty Days offers a strong dose of post-romantic reality but not a shred of science fiction: its modernism lies instead in the experimental technique and Verne's unique twisting of space and time. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum 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, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

What I learned from this book: travelling by train is far more dangerous and troubling than travelling by boat. What happens to Phileas Fogg and his group during their train travels is insane. About halfway through the book I switched to the audiobook, narrated by Jim Dale, and this choice has bee...

5.0 Around the World in 80 Days
"A true Englishman doesn't joke when he is talking about so serious a thing as a wager," replied Phileas Fogg, solemnly. With this we're off to the one of the best adventure stories... And no matter how often I read this book, I still get excited about whether they will make it back to the Reform C...

5.0 Fast race, turn of the century style
That was awesome! I love when these classics turn out to be addictive page-turners. Even though I knew Fogg had to triumph, I admit I had several moments of true anxiety, so double points. Into the podium of Verne's favorites it goes. Now, what do I do with this furious raging of my wanderlust?

4.0 Around the World in Eighty Days
This is full of adventure. It was written at a time when people couldn’t find facts about other parts of the world as easily as we can today. Even though it may not be completely accurate, it sparks an interest by showing different countries around the world. I enjoyed the trip. It highlights di...
