Around the World in Eighty Days

Around the World in Eighty Days - Jules Verne It is somewhat amazing to admit, but this is the first Jules Verne book I've read. Suffice it to say that others are in the queue, as I enjoyed it thoroughly.Verne's tale of Phileas Fogg and his servant, Jean Passepartout (which translates to "Jack of all trades"), undertaking a journey around the world on a wager is an entertaining romp across cultures as they were understood at the time. Fogg's eccentricities are many, and they make for a delightful read.Not to be missed!
