Description

Around the World in Eighty Days (Le tour du monde en quatre-vingt jours) is a classic.

The story starts in London on 2 October 1872. Phileas Fogg is a wealthy, solitary man with regular habits, who fires his former butler for getting wrong the temperature of his shaving water.

He hires Passepartout as a replacement. Later that day he gets involved in an argument over an article in the Daily Telegraph, stating that with the opening of a new railway in India, it is now possible to travel around the world in eighty days.

The exciting, if now dated, adventure of Fogg and Passepartout will entertain modern readers as much as it did the Victorians.With an Afterword by John Grant
