Summary

Pragmatic gambler Phileas Fogg has made a gentlemanly wager to the members of his exclusive club: that he can circle the world in just eighty days, right down to the minute. Fetching his newly appointed French valet, Fogg embarks on a fabulous journey across land and sea - by steamer, rail, and elephant - to win the bet of a lifetime.

Inspired by Jules Verne's own sea travels and his fascination with circumnavigating the globe, the avid dreamer's picaresque voyage inspired generations of adventurers who were eager to best Verne's challenge - from nineteenth-century journalist Nellie Bly to Monty Python's Michael Palin.

Great accents! Narrator uses American accent.

While the narration is with an American accent, each character is given a distinct accent, be it British, French, calm, or excitable.
As my first “reading” of this classic, I didn’t know how it would end. May be sappy, but I didn’t expect it until almost the last chapter. The story of an unemotional, un-moveable Englishman who hides away his feelings is not a new theme, but it is still captivating. And the narration certainly brings life to the story!
