This is the 11th book in the Extraordinary Voyages Series. Classic Jules Verne yarn about Phileas Fogg, who, for a bet, decides.
The Survivors of the Chancellor Jules Verne. Off On a Comet Jules Verne. The Child of the Cavern Jules Verne. Phileas Fogg lived, in , at No. He was one of the most noticeable members of the Reform Club, though he seemed always to avoid attracting attention; an enigmatical personage, about whom little was known, except that he was a polished man of the world. People said that he resembled Byron—at least that his head was Byronic; but he was a bearded, tranquil Byron, who might live on a thousand years without growing old.
Certainly an Englishman, it was more doubtful whether Phileas Fogg was a Londoner. He was never seen on 'Change, nor at the Bank, nor in the counting-rooms of the "City"; no ships ever came into London docks of which he was the owner; he had no public employment; he had never been entered at any of the Inns of Court, either at the Temple, or Lincoln's Inn, or Gray's Inn; nor had his voice ever resounded in the Court of Chancery, or in the Exchequer, or the Queen's Bench, or the Ecclesiastical Courts.
He certainly was not a manufacturer; nor was he a merchant or a gentleman farmer.
His name was strange to the scientific and learned societies, and he never was known to take part in the sage deliberations of the Royal Institution or the London Institution, the Artisan's Association, or the Institution of Arts and Sciences.
He belonged, in fact, to none of the numerous societies which swarm in the English capital, from the Harmonic to that of the Entomologists, founded mainly for the purpose of abolishing pernicious insects. Phileas Fogg was a member of the Reform, and that was all. The way in which he got admission to this exclusive club was simple enough. He was recommended by the Barings, with whom he had an open credit.
His cheques were regularly paid at sight from his account current, which was always flush. Was Phileas Fogg rich? But those who knew him best could not imagine how he had made his fortune, and Mr. Fogg was the last person to whom to apply for the information.

A much enjoyed classic of Jules Verne. Though, I have found Butcher translations of Verne not the best version of translations. He uses MANY words when he could have and should have used fewer.
In other words, he is long winded. Again, this is just my opinion on That topic.
On the whole, a very very good book. Not only does this book give us a vivid look at travel in , it is character-driven. I'm so often disappointed by modern novels whose authors seem to have forgotten that you need more than a clever structure to keep a story moving along. In this book, I also love that a French author made his protagonist English, and while quirky, he has integrity and depth. A fabulous and fun adventure. Both are technically accurate enough renderings of Verne's French into the English language, but Towle's version is a tad smoother and easier to read than Frith's whose English syntax tends to be occasionally stilted and choppy.
Therefore, I would advise any prospective reader of this public domain freebie by Frith to still download it, but to ALSO download the other free public domain version that is by Towle but not identified as such ; read the first few pages of each and decide which of the two you will wish to continue reading from start to finish. I strongly suspect you will prefer Towle 5-stars over Frith 4-stars. But whichever one you choose, Verne's tale is terrific, and for more than a few pleasant hours you will find yourself vicariously traveling around the world with Phileas Fogg and Passepartout.
This is the original version with a few corrections in grammar or spelling. I bought this to compare it to Michael Todd's movie of the same name. An informational video I had seen about the movie made some extravagant claims, so I bought this to check out those claims.

Todd had wanted the cast as you see them because they fit Verne's description. The book proved that. Todd had wanted most everything that the book has all of the story line.
It does. Then on top of that, the story is truly wonderful. It is upliftting and fun at times, and harrowing and suspenseful at others.
I was very pleased with this book. You will be too, especiallyu if you've seen Michael Todd's production of this in his s movie.
Buy this book and buy the movie too. Both are delightfully entertaining! As an American, I especially liked his take on his trip across America.
It was not judgmental, just very objective, and at times eye-opening for me. Next up?
