Mysterious Phileas Fogg is a cool customer. A man of the most repetitious and punctual habit – with no apparent sense of adventure whatsoever – he gambles his considerable fortune that he can complete a journey around the world in just 80 days… immediately after a newspaper calculates the feat as just barely possible. With his excitable French manservant in tow, Fogg undertakes the exercise immediately, with no preparations, trusting that his traveling funds will make up for delays along the way. But unbeknownst to him, British police are desperately seeking to arrest him for the theft of a huge sum by someone who resembles him, and they will track him around the world, if necessary, to apprehend him. This is an adventure novel of the first water, with wholly unexpected perils, hair-breadth escapes, brilliant solutions to insoluble problems, and even a love story. And can this be – That he returns to London just five minutes too late to win his wager and retain his fortune.

Around the World in 80 Days
It is like the worst book ever and it takes so long to read. I seriously wanted to kill myself while reading this. DO NOT READ IT! YOU WILL REGRET IT! I'm really sorry to whoever had to read this or has been forced to read it. I would buy this book just so I could burn it! Jules Verne should never have asked the publishers to publish this book! It ruined my life!
I love this book
This book is the best it help me with my grammar but the thing that was hard is the names
But rather than that the book is the best
