Shocking his stodgy colleagues at the exclusive Reform Club, enigmatic Englishman Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune, undertaking an extraordinary and daring enterprise to circumnavigate the globe in eighty days. With his French valet Passepartout in tow, Verne's hero traverses the far reaches of the earth, all the while tracked by the intrepid Detective Fix, a bounty hunter certain he is on the trail of a notorious bank robber.
Combining exploration, adventure, and a thrilling race against time, AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS gripped audiences upon its original publication and remains hugely popular to this day.
I liked it.
It was surprisingly good telling of around the world in 80 days. Jim Dale is a master story Teller and the sound effects just made it that much better.
Just a great book, with a great narraitort. He also did Harry Potter.
Narrator is wonderful and very expressive. He gives each character a unique persona and voice. If you are interesting in listening to this book, look no further than this rendition.
