Around the World in 80 Days
Written by Jules Verne
Translated from French by Michael Glencross

"In Around the World in Eighty Days, Phileas Fogg rashly bets his companions £20,000 that he can travel around the entire globe in just eighty days—and he is determined not to lose. Breaking the well-established routine of his daily life, the reserved Englishman immediately sets off for Dover, accompanied by his French manservant, Passepartout. Traveling by train, steamship, sailboat, sledge, and even elephant, they must overcome storms, kidnappings, natural disasters, Sioux attacks, and the dogged Inspector Fix of Scotland Yard. Combining exploration, adventure, and a thrilling race against time, Around the World in Eighty Days gripped audiences upon its publication and remains hugely popular to this day."

"A really fun book with adventure, romance, humor, and much more! A must read!"

"Jim Dale's performance is exceptional. Even when he talks with a woman's voice, you forget that a man does it! Jim Dale's narration made it absolutely perfect!"
