Description - Around the World in Eighty Days by Jules Verne
The eccentric English gentleman Phileas Fogg accepts a challenge to circle the globe in no more than 80 days - an incredible feat for the Victorian age. Exotic locales, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and comic relief (chiefly supplied by Fogg's loyal valet, Passepartout) provide a fantastic blend of adventure, entertainment, and suspense.

Author Biography - Jules Verne
"The reason Verne is still read by millions today is simply that he was one of the best storytellers who ever lived." -- Arthur C. Clarke. Jules Verne started out composing librettos, but the French-born author's passion for travel and exploration compelled him to turn to adventure tales, creating the prototype for today's science fiction. One of the most translated authors in the world, Jules Verne is best known for his classics, Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days.
